Creating a Business Action Plan

Auditorium   Level 2

Are you feeling stuck? Unfocused? Disorganized? Take back control with a Business Action Plan (BAP). This jam-packed session cuts to the chase to show you how you can create a business plan that doesn’t suck.

Creative freelancers and entrepreneurs are often left stranded by traditional business planning efforts; the process can be frustrating and the final document doesn’t help you get any closer to accomplishing your goals, assuming you even finish it! After creating a Business Action Plan (BAP) you’ll have an action-oriented tool at your fingertips, and on your devices, that will keep you on track as you manage and market your creative endeavor.

A BAP helps you identify your pain points, dig deeper into the core components of your business, clarify growth opportunities, and hammer out marketing strategies—all without the use of lame business terminology or pixie dust. This tool, and the concepts and insights behind it, will guide you through the process of removing the chaos and mystery from your creative business, making independent work less stressful and more productive. A BAP provides you with a manageable structure that keeps you focused on asking the right questions and a system by which to keep you accountable with your own business-building efforts. This session will be fast-paced and in the end, you’ll walk away with a killer resource that will help you take action!
