3 reasons why a Business Plan is not enough PLUS what you need to include for your next LAUNCH
Key takeaways 1- Business Plan doesn’t tell the WHY of your business. You have to incorporate your story using a storytelling plan 2- Business plan doesn’t tell you HOW the work will actually get done.  3 - Business plan doesn’t tell you the WHEN every activity needs to get done and HOW much it will cost. So, what you need is a PROJECT PLAN. A project plan consists of outlining each task, each task's deadline, each task's responsible person, and each task's cost. I do offer project management services that comes with a 30 minute complimentary consultation. For the last 5 years, I’ve been helping launch projects in the healthcare industry managing multi-million dollar projects, and I bring that same expertise to the everyday 9-5 or solopreneurs.You don’t have to do this alone. Having a project plan doesn’t just pertain to business, this can also be used for those who are transitioning to a new career, and you need a detailed plan and timeline of when you want to  apply to schools and jobs, when you need to reach out to certain people, when you need to focus on networking, etc.  So, let me connect the dots for your next launch!

Keep it Simple | How I Simplify my Goals, Tools, and Ideas for my Work and Business
Takeaways from today's episodes: The way to growth is simplification.  - I simplified my overall goal in my work and business by reconnecting with my OVERALL WHY in life. - I simplified my tools and methods in my work+ business by….eliminating unnecessary subscriptions, simplifying my apps, making smart investments, and focusing on consistency vs growth.    - I simplified my tools and methods in my work + business by investing smart. This takes honest evaluation. The right investment at the wrong time is still a bad investment. Get clear on your vision so that you can get clear on what you actually need, and pray for discernment. - Focus on consistency vs growth. If people’s affirmations determine your work ethic, you will never be stable in any plan God has for you. We allow THEM to control what’s supposed to be dedicated to HIM. - Give yourself a timeline of consistency before you start something new or invest. What’s one small way you can invest your time and what you currently have to build momentum? - I simplified my IDEAS by doing an honest evaluation of my time and resources to set realistic expectations. - I simplified my IDEAS by limiting my knowledge intake and focusing more on my  application output.   - I simplified my IDEAS by sticking to what God tells me to say.        Learn more about career coaching and writing services at: https://theroughdraftcollective.com/work-with-us/ Download the free vision planning worksheet here : https://mailchi.mp/259ec289fc54/bx8hnyo3k0 Download Unfinished Business Journal here : https://theroughdraftcollective.com/shop/ Visit theroughdraftcollective.com Follow me on my IG @_melaniechristina : https://www.instagram.com/_melaniechristina/ See y'all next week!  Music from https://filmmusic.io "Cinematic HipHop 002" by Sascha Ende (https://www.sascha-ende.de) License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)

Top 10 Career & Business Lessons I've Learned over the Past Decade
For the last series of the year, we are talking about lessons we've learned over the past decade! Many times in the day to day circumstances, we may feel like we're not getting anywhere, but from God's perspective, we've come so far! Today's Takeaways Career Development 1. Job searching takes time and intentionality. Don't half way apply to anything, but follow up on everything. Tailor your resume and cover letter to the specific job. 2. Instead of just applying on the larger job sites,  take the time to find companies within your field, and get as close to the inside as you can. 3. When interviewing, come with specific questions tailored to how your role plays into the larger company vision. Show that you're committed to the future of the company. 4. Don't allow work relationships to keep you from your bigger professional goals. Remain neutral, and don't engage with drama or allow workplace friendships to keep you stuck. 5. Make people remember you. Go the extra mile with every connection you make. Send thank you letters, send follow up emails, and go the extra mile when working with other departments. 6. Keep a work journal and QUANTIFY everything. Assess the current state of the role and your department before you arrived. Then, document the success (using specific data) you bring to the team and department. BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT 7. Build the proper policies, systems, and routines up front. Organization is the key to consistency. 8. Allow the big picture to inspire you, but don't allow the vision to deter you from starting small. 9. Use ready-made tools and templates if possible when starting out. Invest SMART. 10. You CAN DO BOTH. Stretch yourself.  Email/DM us some of your lessons learned so we can share throughout this series! Follow us on Instagram @TheRoughDraftCollective Want to be featured on this podcast?
