Do you need some help in focusing on your dreams and plans for your business? In this episode, Cara introduces the Dream-Learn-Plan-Do framework. This tool helps new entrepreneurs prioritize their focus by starting with the end goal in mind.
Many new business owners really struggle to know where to put their focus. Many think: Where do I spend my time and energy? What is my goal or mission with my business? Am I in a position to bring someone on board? The Dream-Learn-Plan-Do framework helps business owners understand what they want and need in order to become successful.
Cara talks about backwards planning for new business owners. It is important to start with your goals. Cara uses the example of being a former teacher and coming into the classroom on Monday and having to quickly prep for that day’s lesson. What she did was dedicate time on Friday to re-organize the classroom, print the worksheets and get everything ready. This way there is no stress on Monday.
So for business owners, think about a goal in the future, like the launch of a product. Think about what needs to get done for that launch and plan backwards. Put all of the important dates leading up to the launch in your calendar and figure out the planning process. This can be done for multiple projects at once that can be planned in advance.
Cara talks about what to learn based on your goals. If you don’t have a plan for something, you can spend time learning it. For example, if you are going to launch a course in February, you can spend time in December or January learning different strategies related to what you are teaching. This will get you prepared for the course. You can also decide how many days in advance the learning needs to happen in order for you to feel confident to deliver.
