Very few businesses achieve the level of success that they aspire to. This is a shame. Sometimes the business they have chosen may not have sufficient market to enable it to grow, some may not have the knowledge, some may not have the money and some may not have the poeple. Others just get caught in a RUT and struggle for survival every week and month.

The common trait among most of these business is lack of planning or lack of activity as a result of the planning.

Your plan will guide your success and your ability to stick to your plan will determine the level of success you achieve.

So why do so few people have a plan or ever create a plan? Too Busy, Too much indiscipline, indifference, fear that it will slow them down. Most are not valid reasons.

Some people feel it will hinder their growth – they rarely do.

Some people have plans but they are not comprehensive enough and they do not demonstrate the business owners level of research and understanding of their business or their marketplace.

About the author,

Hi I’m Derek O’Dwyer. I have been an ActionCOACH for the last 18 years. I live in Clare and work with businesses around Ireland to take their business to the next level. I am passionate about business and providing help and advice. In the past 18 years I have worked with over 400 business owners helping them and their business. I adapt my coaching depending on what you and your business need. I find that each coaching relationship is different but as long as we understand that we have a common objective with timescales, positive things happen quickly. I am a firm believer i the concept of “what you can measure you can manage” and “what you measure you can improve”. Key performance indicators and accountability form the bedrock of my coaching platforms. If making more money from your business, working less hours in your business and having a great team running your business then it’s worth having a discussion with me. If you are willing to implement changes I will be there to help every step of the way. In terms of personal accolades and recognition I have been awarded ActionCOACH of the year in Ireland every year for the last ten years In 2019 I was inducted into the ActionCOACH Global Hall Of Fame I was global Rookie Coach of The Year in 2002 having achieved remarkable success as the first ActionCOACH in Europe.
