Business Planning (The Start-Up)

A business plan is a written description of your business’s future, a document that tells what you plan to do and how you plan to do it. It is a to do list and not to do list strategy to become successful. If you jot down a paragraph on the back of an envelope describing your business strategy, you’ve written a plan, or at least the game of the plan. In planning you must involved many people in your circle or in your team to get their ideas and evaluate the best ideas and use that ideas.

Business plans are inherently strategic and very important in business at all levels and all type of industry. You start here, today, with certain resources and abilities. You want to get to there, a point in the future (usually three to five years out) at which time your business will have a different set of resources and abilities as well as greater profitability, people, management and increased assets. Your plan shows how you will get from here to there. In good planning you need includes all possible risks and factors that will surely encounter in the way. Lists all the risks and factors and it’s corresponding measures or prevention to that matter.

Starting a business is stressful, need much time, capital and resources but it i also a full excitement and inspiration to achieve something you want in the future ahead. You’re wearing a million different hats trying to establish and grow your business, and there are always going to be unexpected challenges and obstacles that put a strain on your objectives. As a result, many entrepreneurs have to work long hours often, while keeping their day job battling uncertainty and still do great work.

In business planning you need to plan everything set all your goals, objectives, and target of achievements. You need to set up how much capital, manpower, and what type of business you are trying to engage in. It is in business planning that really matters for you to become successful in your business. In business don’t be on a rush but at the same time don’t be to slow because resources, time and competitive environment are always their that might affect your business and affect your plan. In business you need to gamble of being successful or failure.

That’s why it’s important to try to do other things in your life to help relieve some of that strain. By living a healthy lifestyle like exercising, eating right, have a healthy hobby then you will have more energy and positive mind to help you jump any hurdles in your way. The first 60 seconds of a business pitch can be the difference between reaching your highest goal or falling flat on your face. If not, it’s back to the ground floor and starting from scratch again  but this with lesson.

A successful business entrepreneur always plans ahead, think ahead and take risk head on. The higher the risk is involved the more return you will get. It is just a matter on how you plan your business and take everything in consideration all factors that may affect the business performance.

“Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”

— Winston S. Churchill

Have You Talked To Your Virtual Assistants About Rogue One Yet?

Do you know what your virtual assistants do for fun?

Have you asked them about their interests?

Did you know that they paint, cook really well, or watch the same series and movies as you? A little something my friend bought for me from Japan. I still need to have it framed.

You are going to find out the most interesting things about your VA if you asked. They’ll be willing to share.

This is a habit that John (OnlineJobs.ph owner) has picked up over the years of working with us. He either asks us the fun stuff we’re up to recently, or we just openly share the information with him anyway.

I must admit, there was a time where it brought out paranoia. There was a time when I thought, oh my god, did I do something wrong? Why does he want to find out. Later on, I realized he just wanted to. He wanted to learn about his VA and the stuff I was interested in, and if it was something he found cool too, we would talk about it, and we would show off all the fun things we have about it.

Last week, John asked me about something I mentioned on my report. He asked me what a Dalek was. Well, the Daleks are only the most awesome and saddest villains of all time John!!! But really, according to Wiki, “the Daleks were engineered by the scientist Davros during the final years of a thousand-year war between his people, the Kaleds, and their enemies the Thals. With some Kaleds already badly mutated and damaged by nuclear war, Davros genetically modified the Kaleds and integrated them with a tank-like, robotic shell, removing their every emotion apart from hate. His creations soon came to view themselves as the supreme race in the universe, intent on purging the universe of all non-Dalek life.”

Watch the best Dalek moments here:

I’ve been crazy over this series for a while. I’ve been crazy over a lot of movies and series actually, and I like to buy stuff that remind me of these interests. Lately, I bought some Metal Works 3D Models and posted it on instagram. It’s a great hobby to start. You basically buy something that looks like this:

And it transforms into this:

I made this all by myself. :)

When John saw it, he reacted the way no typical boss reacts. “It looks great. You should write about it.” He said. So here I am, playing with two of my toys, trying to get some inspiration for work.

Prime Minister: Does it surprise you to know that Daleks have a concept of beauty?
The Doctor: I thought you’d run out of ways to make me sick. But hello again. You think hatred is beautiful?

Prime Minister: Perhaps that is why we have never been able to kill you.
R2D2: Beeeeeepp beeeeep dooot, wit wit doooooot!

It Doesn’t Have to Be an Awkward 1 on 1

You don’t have to schedule a call and start an interview. Go back to basics which is, your VA’s are humans. You can you know, talk to them. To make it easier for you, the new Star Wars movie Rogue One is showing. You’ll be surprised at how many Filipinos are crazy about Star Wars. In fact, we have Star Wars Fandoms everywhere.

If you think you have absolutely nothing in common because of the geographic differences, think again. I’m crazy about both Doctor Who and Star Wars, British and American legacies. And there are so many movies and series I watch, just like the other virtual assistants I know. So yeah, there’s bound to be something you can relate to. If not movies and series, then maybe the latest gadgets or food!

It’s as simple as that, start by asking about the newest show on air, or the new movie you want to watch. Who knows, you might be interested in the same things. You might get a better perception of how they do things, of what they are passionate about, of what makes them tick.

Why Do You Need to Talk to Your VA?

Talking with your virtual assistant doesn’t just make a better working relationship. You have to admit, there’s a point to the saying “Out of sight, out of mind.” Constant effort is necessary to remind yourself that hey, this is a real person. In return, your virtual assistant will also be reminded that I’m not just working for this email address or this business. There’s a person behind this business, and that person has a family, has friends, and bills he also has to pay for. He’s a real person like me. It reminds your staff, just like I am reminded, I don’t just want a business to succeed, I want this person, my boss to succeed.
