What Does Clearly Defining Your Goals Mean? …Not A Trick Question

Every business owner and entrepreneur I coach finalizes a financial performance plan for their business during Phase 1 of the coaching program.  This plan is for at least a year and may extend 18 months or so.  While that has been a foundation of the success experienced by the many people I have worked with, I have arrived at an enhanced formula for even greater success.

While the entire picture is reserved for my clients, this will give you insight as to the expanded formula for success.  Here are some questions that will give you an idea:

1.  Knowing what you know now, would you be in this business if you were to start fresh today?

2. What is the visualization of your life three years from now with this business and what behavior and action steps do we need to implement now for that picture to become reality. With this questions I am focusing on lifestyle goals including the material things that the client is dreaming about.  So this is a stretch the imagination exercise.

From these questions and more we develop action steps that are implemented to achieve the desired outcome and measure actual performance against plan.  Plan Actual Variance is the Gold Formula which will be the topic of a future article.

In summary, defining your goals really means defining how you want to experience your life.  I look forward to your comments.


There is no better way to move from where you are economically today than where you want to be than being in your own business.  There is no better way to succeed in your own business fast than to be led step by step by an experienced coach who has experienced success and struggles.
