My Strategic Planning Method That Will Roadmap Your Business to 7-Figure Growth

Welcome back to 7-Figure Educator! In this episode, I delve into the often overlooked yet potent tool for business success: strategic planning.

Emphasizing how strategic planning is the backbone of thriving businesses, it's surprisingly neglected in entrepreneurial circles. In this decision, join me as I dissect the essence of strategic planning, drawing parallels to the meticulous planning teachers undertake in classrooms. Just as how a teacher meticulously plans lessons to achieve educational objectives, entrepreneurs must craft detailed strategies, priorities, and key performance indicators. Further, the three critical layers of strategic planning: annual, quarterly, and weekly are also explored, each contributing to the overarching vision and mission of the business.

Tune in to this episode and learn more about how you can steer your business toward sustainable growth and impact!

“When you have a plan, you don't feel stuck. Now, you might have to make decisions or if you need to pivot, or if you need to go in another direction, but you're not stuck. So if you're stuck, that means you are operating in a classroom with no lesson plan.” — Dr. Erica Jordan-Thomas

“Give yourself the gift of whatever environment you need in order to make sure that you can fully live and just lean into strategic planning.” — Dr. Erica Jordan-Thomas
