Welcome to this episode of The Organised Women in Business Podcast. Today’s episode is about the basics of business planning.
STOP! Don’t put your phone or headphones away. I’m not talking about the type of business plan that you need to send to a bank for finance approval. But even if I was, that’s actually really important stuff too!!
I’m talking about day to day operational type business planning.
When it comes to planning and organisation, there is no silver bullet, there is no magic solution. Everyone is wired differently and different systems work for different people. But the basics of business planning are fundamentally the same.
You’d be surprised to know that I’m not expecting everyone to plan the way I plan. I just want you to find a method that works best for you, your business, and your life. If that’s using some or all of my methods and tested products and systems, I’ll be doing metaphorical cartwheels. If you don’t use my methods or products or systems but still find success in business planning, I’ll be doing metaphorical cartwheels. What brings me the most joy is you finding something that works for you and your business. That’s it.
Dear listeners, I’ve a question (or few) for you.
What’s your business planning look like at the moment?
Are you a pen and paper fan, or electronic all the way? Maybe a combination of both?
Do you have any systems in place? Do you think you could improve how you spend your time?
I’d love to hear your thoughts. Let me know below, or on my Facebook page.

Do you know what your values are? I assess mine regularly to make sure I’m conducting my business in a way that aligns with my values, and in doing so, I’m also assessing my productivity.
There may be bias because Rachel Reiter is the brand stylist genius behind my gorgeous visual branding, but this episode is a must listen for business owners looking to create a cohesive brand and be productive in the process.
It might be the silly season, or any other time you want to take a break, but that doesn’t mean you need to bend over backwards to keep your business going. Here’s what I do to take a break and switch off.
