Is Your Business Running You? Do You Realize That You Need A Plan, But It Never Gets Written Because You HATE Creating Your Own Plan?

Our Killer Success Roadmap Puts Laser-Focus On Your Vision and Goals and Motivates You To Take Action. It's Planning On Steroids that Leads To Your Business Running Like a Swiss Watch!

Idea, Action Plan Photo thanks to www.123RF.com I haven't met an advisor yet, who didn't tell me that they know they are supposed to have a business plan. Advisors know the importance of planning, after all you create plans for your clients. But most often, they don't have a document stating their vision, goals, strategies, nor an action plan for achieving those goals.

How do you expect your clients to take action on their plan, if you haven't gone through the planning process yourself?

The plan we help you create, will pay dividends well beyond the time and money you invest to create it. This is NOT a plan to garner funding. This is NOT a 40 page plan that will take up space on your shelf. It IS a practical, proven growth planning process that will drive a year's worth of increased productivity to you and your firm, in just a few hours.

It is a plan that inspire you to be excited about the work that lies ahead. It is a plan that keeps you focused, helps save you time, and keeps you from making mistakes.

This live webinar or Skype program is guided by Maria Marsala--former Wall Street Retail Trader and now a coach to financial advisors--takes you through a streamlined process powered by the One Page Business Plan®. You'll create a business and marketing plan rolled into ONE, a hyper-focused document that you use daily! It's short-term planning that helps build long-term results. You leave the training with your 12-month business and marketing plan -- DONE and ready to use.

What You'll Accomplish

Spend this day working on your business without interruption to draw up your business roadmap, highlight cost and time inefficiencies, determine your marketing strategies and streamline your operations -- on one piece of paper. Start executing your plan the next day

This day will make a BIG difference to your business as you develop clear strategies and ideas on how to move your business forward for focused results.

"Because I'm a numbers person, I've always had trouble with the "writing part" of planning and setting aside enough time to write a business plan. I knew I needed to have a plan on paper, not just in my mind.

Monica BarnardWhen Maria offered a ONE page business and marketing planning process that could be done in ONE day, I knew that could do THAT much! While preparing for the workshop, I realized that I was in a stagnant place and needed to do new things, including niching, to bring in new business.

I have a better feel for . . . important things I had never really thought about. Maria made the one-day process so easy and straightforward. I had NEVER consistently marketed before, but Maria and my business plan gave me STRUCTURED GUIDANCE. Maria showed me how to create a one-year vision, a five- to ten-year vision, then an exit vision for eventually leaving my company. I have a better feel for what I need to do to grow, to decide when I want to retire, and evaluate whether I'm building my business so I can sell it or turn it over to somebody else to run--important things I had never really thought about.

My customer base increased 10% after years of only 2% growth. I updated my website to target my ideal clients and created a newsletter, which my clients and prospects appreciate! My web traffic has increased by 20%." Read more about Monica's results after attending this one-day program here
