As a start up business owner one of your many functions is to manage the goals you've set for your small business. The best way is to breakdown each goal into a series of doable steps. Action plans are useful tools for breaking down start up goals.
Start up action plans help you determine exactly what start up steps to take. They also move conversations and ideas into writing. Written start up plans are always more effective. Another start up breakdown activity is to make sure each step has a start date and a completion date. Also, for many start up business steps you should quantify what results you want to achieve. Numbers make the steps measurable and create greater business accountability.
Small business start up success is difficult enough. Make it easier by having a written breakdown of each major goal in the form of a written start up action plan with dates and numbers.
