1. A Plan for Accountability

You started your own business because you had the skills to do great work, and the drive to do it on your own terms. But now that you’re the one calling all of the shots, it can be hard to make sure you’re accountable to the goals you’ve set for yourself and your business. With a defined business plan in place, you’ll have a daily reminder of the goals you’ve set out to accomplish. ConnectWise has built-in accountability for sales reps, allowing you to set & track discrepancies and keep things moving forward

2. A Roadmap for Growth

Just like starting your business, achieving growth takes constant dedication to your goals. Focus on manageable portions of your goal every quarter, without fail, to keep your growth on track. Work backward from your quarterly goals to help layout monthly, weekly, and daily tasks that guarantee your overall success. Gain insight into current & future pipelines by knowing how full the funnel is at all times with ConnectWise.

3. A Measuring Stick

With goals set out by quarter, you’ll have a specific mark to measure against. At regular check-ins, you can examine your progress and adjust as needed to keep yourself on track. The new reporting & dashboard abilities in ConnectWise help you identify KPIs and build custom reports. If you’d rather have support along the way, look into peer groups or consulting services that can help you solidify your business plan.
