Plan to make business bigger, better
Don't think of a number and say: "That's my target." Do think of a number and think about how you will achieve this. Write down your plan.
- who is going to do what
- how much is going to be done
- by what date?
We call this an action plan. Now hold regular meetings with your spouse/partner/friend to review how you're doing. Always stretch a bit. It's not good business planning to set easy targets. You could plan and boost your income. Try it NOW. You must write your plan down.
Then follow it. The more thinking you do the better. No pie in the sky targets, please.
Putting dollars to your plan (budgeting) will confirm it's workable.
Finally, if all seems to be going to plan, check regularly to ensure you're making a profit.
