So you think you have it all figured out. The idea has come to your mind and you have put time into manifesting it. Now it’s time to put it in to motion and really get the ball rolling.
You have been putting all of your resources together and you finally landed your first interview with a possible investor. The excitement has been building up and it’s finally happening for you, or is it?
Have you really planned your next steps in the chance they say agree to invest? Is there a plan of action when they approve your million-dollar idea and you actually become an entrepreneur? If your answer is no or if there is any sense of being unsure, go get your pen and paper and immediately begin writing.
You must take this time to determine your six month plan. By placing your goals in writing, it makes them more accessible to achieve. Utilize the S.M.A.R.T. system as a format to setting your personal goals. Make the goals Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-bound.
Analyze each month and what specific goal your want to achieve. Make sure that it can be measured in a month’s time; the tactics can be completed week by week. Be sure your goals are relative to your entrepreneurial journey and can be achieved within a six month time frame.
When you have the goals for your success plan in writing, by achieving them, it provides an outlet to enjoy the satisfaction of having done so. Setting goals is viewed as an important method to deciding what is important for you to achieve in your life, your motivation and separating what is relevant from a distraction.
Carry this plan in your “entrepreneur” binder and use it as a resource. So when you’re walking into the interview and your dream come true is waiting on the other side, you are focused and prepared.
