Importance Of A Business Plan


You have made a WISE DECISION to study, plan, write, and review your Business Plan.  The most successful people do so by design and not by accident.  Keep in mind that you have either a BUSINESS or a HOBBY and your ACTIONS will determine which you have.
 


1. METHODS ... (DIVERSIFIED ADVERTISING)

We want you to have FUN in this business, and that means YOU are in control of the Methods you wish to use to market your business.  Remember YOU are the CEO and President of your new business.  Your success is up to you (not your sponsor, not your upline).  Your sponsor and upline are available for you to call them (not vice versa) for these reasons:

    • To answer questions you cannot find the answer to
    • To solve problems you cannot solve
    • To brainstorm better or more effective ways to market
    • To do 3way calls with your prospects

Every IBO should START by picking 3-5 methods of marketing to give 100% effort in making that method result in new IBOs and/or new members signed up in their business as quickly as possible.

You need to be DILIGENT and WORK HARD at the methods you select. Failure is not an option, it's only a matter of doing it and doing it and doing it until you succeed.

Don't try to figure out every details of your marketing method. This is paralysis of analysis.

Make sure you BRAINSTORM each method you select with your sponsor to make sure you have the best approach possible for the quickest result.

2. HOURS ... (DOING BUSINESS ON PURPOSE)

Make sure you WRITE OUT your work hours. Post your Ameriplan® business hours on your refrigerator and your bathroom mirror and in your car. Tell your family that your Ameriplan® work hours are MORE important than your job hours, and that it is more important to work hard for your own business and your own wealth, than you would for someone else's business (your job) and their wealth.

"Fail to Plan = Plan to Fail"

This is one of the most important projects you will do.
Write down your work schedule!

You need to plan your AmeriPlan® work schedule so that you know you are putting in adequate time to get the results you want. Writing down your schedule increases the likelihood of your discipline and productivity by 500%... Enough said?
