This week, I’m going to teach you how to create your own spiritual business plan—and I’m going to share how I created my own when I first started my business.
If you’re a spiritual teacher, healer or coach, and if you facilitate transformation and you want to bring real wealth into your life from your service, then make sure you’re following my YouTube channel, where I’ll be releasing new content every week.
Okay, are you ready for step one of your business plan? It’s one of my favorite things to talk about and it’s one that I can’t emphasize enough.
Step 1: Create Your Own Visionary Budget
This is very different from creating a traditional budget because when you create a traditional budget, you work with the amount of money that you are used to bringing in.
So if you’re on a salary or you’re an employee, you have a set income. You bring in X amount of money every month, and your job when you budget is to figure out how to make all the expenses that you have fit within that amount.
As an entrepreneur, you don’t have that restriction, for better and for worse. Instead, it’s up to you how much money you want to bring in every month. So my recommendation is to vision. What is it that you want to spend money on? What is that you want to save money for? How much does all that add up to?
Step 2: Create Your Menu
This step is all about figuring out what you’re selling. What packages, services, products do you offer? List them all. Then determine how many of them you want to sell every single month, month after month after month.
Let’s say for instance, you’re a coach and you help individuals or groups. You want to think about how many one-on-one clients you want to have and how many group clients you want to have. And think about it in terms of your schedule and how many people’s energy you want in your field.
Step 3: Pricing
Note, this is not step one. This is not step two. You’re going to use the numbers you came up with in step one and step two to help determine your pricing.
Okay, so if you want to make the number you wrote down for step one by selling the number of units or programs that you wrote down in step two, how much do they have to cost in order for the numbers to add up?
Step 4: Create a Brilliant, Beautiful, Inspiring Sales Plan
Why are sales important? Why is a sales plan important? Well, if you have a business, you need to be bringing money into that business. And money comes into a business because of sales. That’s what it is.
So you have to be clear not only about what you’re selling, how many of them you’re selling, and how much you’re selling them for, but the who, when, and how of the selling itself.
Who’s going to make the sales? How are they going to have time to do it? If you’re doing the sales, how are you going to make sure that you have time to do your sales as well as fulfill on those sales? You need to make sure you have time for both—that’s why it’s so important to take time to map out a proposed plan of action for how the sales are going to happen.
