Series: Business Uncomplicated
Cohost: The AMAZING Ellen Rohr
As humans, we have a tendency to over complicate things. We do it in our jobs, we do it in our relationships and we do it in our day-to-day lives. Sometimes we need to take a step back so that we can see how we’re doing things, in order for us to make improvements.
In this series, I’m joined by Ellen Rohr who you may have met back in episode 42. If you didn’t hear that episode, I suggest you go back and check it out because it was one of our most listened to episodes.
Ellen has had an amazing journey from being ‘the plumbers wife’, to where she is now as the President of the Zoom Drains franchise company.
Ellen has a world of knowledge and has worked with some huge organisations throughout her career, including Wells Fargo bank. She has an amazing ability to communicate in simple terms what most of us would be beating our heads against the wall trying to understand and she delivers it all with a smile and a laugh.
I love any chance to get on the other end of a phone with her and I know you’ll all love this amazing series.
Episode 2: Business Planning Made Easy
The difference between success and failure often comes directly back to the amount of planning that’s involved.
Look at successful athletes as an example. In 99.999% of the time, they are successful because they’ve planned ahead and put in the work to get where they are. The have planned their training routines, they’ve planned their diets, they’ve planned their rest days, they’ve set plans and strategies with their coaches, etc.
Business is no different. If you don’t have a clear vision of where you want to go, then how do you intent to get there? Or, worse still, if you have not planned where you want to go, then you’ll have nothing to strive for, so you’ll never reach any milestones.
In this podcast, Ellen wonderfully articulates some of the barriers that we encounter when setting a business plan and she also talks us through how to go about creating one as simply as possible.
Remember, as the name of the series states, IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE COMPLICATED! Less is more and simple is better.
