Goldclipper (One Page Plan)
We have been using the One Page Plan for over a year now, and I have just signed up for a further year. That should, in itself, be a very strong recommendation, but I’ll tell you why we value it so much.
First of all, it provides an excellent framework for focussing on the key elements of your business. This alone is worth the investment, as you may well realise that you are wasting time on peripheral activities.
Secondly, it takes a holistic view of the business: not just the financial elements (vital thought they are) but also the other crucial factors that determine success or failure.
Thirdly, it provides a mechanism for comparing planned activities with actuals – again, not just the financials but all of the key drivers.
Fourthly, it provides external oversight of your progress. Are you doing all of the things that you know you should? Or just the ones that are comfortable? Having to own up regularly about your actions is a very powerful incentive to complete them!
Fifthly, taking the time to talk about your business for a few hours if definitely time well spent – especially with Guy, whose clarity and logical thinking are a big part of the service.
If you are serious about your business, you should sign up for the One Page Plan
