Lesson Info

Show & Tell

We went through, you know, all these different pieces company overview is really the business vision and values you've done, the crowding your creative cohorts, the's air kind of the typical sections that go into the traditional plan. So lo and behold, you guys have actually done the legwork of things that go into a traditional plan, the managing them well, a financial plan, there may be some fine tuning and tweaking for anyone wanting to go for the funding, and so if you're wanting to do that, you and now have someplace to start to maybe work with an mba student to do some more financial modeling. Or maybe you just need to talk to, you know, your cousin who is a cfo at a company who might be able to give you some inside tips or just, you know, talking through with some friends to kind of like we were doing with caitlin, you know, we could have taken that segment a lot more and just given the time we weren't able to go to that level of detail, but you guys kind of got the sense of how ...

to start breaking down when you know the big number and then chunking it into smaller ones and how many people you would need at what price to get to that number, so we've done those pieces business landscape was the competitive analysis piece and the marking plan was that getting the word out so if you're wanting tio go for funding, which I get the sense that probably that's a small percentage of those watching but what you need to do is then translate the visual plan into a written document that investors and grant people are used to sing so it's basically taking your right brain thinking, translating into the language they understand so that they can understand the value that they're offering for them to say yes, I'm going to give you money, but the great thing is you've done a lot of the legwork and thinking about what needs to happen, what are all the pieces that go into making this profitable business and then just having someone else put it in the template that maybe you don't want to be dealing with, right? But I imagine that might not be the case for most people watching, but in case that's for you, you can also hire someone to help you with that. Okay, so I just want to make sure we cover that because I know that comes up a lot. Um, I think it's really important to make sure you are maintaining the momentum we've covered so much here, right? We want to make sure that we're continuing to move forward, and so here just some tips for how to do that put your right brain business plan where you can see it so I know that I asked the in studio people to you know have them here so you know even just have them open right now as we're closing out the workshop and you know take a look at it take it in see how far you've come um share your plan you guys obviously have been doing that throughout this workshop here in studio and online sharing all your tweets and instagrams of your right bring business plans so continue to do that continue to share your plan I shared with you know, your new creative cohorts that you found here in this virtual community during these three days share with the folks in your life you know, maybe share it with your family or your spell so they understand you know what you're working on share it with the people who might become strategic partners or people who are going to be on your team and that will help give them a sense of what you're about make sure you're asking for help so that you can continue moving forward you don't have to go it alone I love this of doing quarterly check ins we don't have the calendar they're anymore what's behind there but that's a great way of you know after each quarter checking in you know did you hit that mullah goal did you hit the goals that you I had set out for that quarter and there's actually a quarterly check in play sheet in the book that has kind of a stop start continue model that you can use to do that and celebrate your successes right on that's. Always great to do anything. Sometimes we move too fast on we forget to celebrate. So I want to take some time here to make sure that you guys are celebrating so I'd love for you to just take a moment and, uh, write down three things that you want to acknowledge about your progress, okay? And there's some other questions here too. If you want to take him on. What are you most proud of? What have you learned about yourself through your business? But the simplest want to do here is, you know, three things you want to acknowledge about your progress here. And for those of you online, please share those in the chat as well. You know, some of the things that I've seen, so we could just do this first one the three things you want acknowledge their celebrate during these three days. And if you come up with to that's totally fine. If you come up with five that's great three is just a suggestion, okay, whether some online that would like to give voice to yes, ok, bring it on let's, see, I odd says who has been with us, I believe, for all three days saying that says I want to celebrate being smarter, empowered and determined suite yes, indigo says into go, cassie says, I finished my right brain business plan inspired to afford even with all my fears, knowing that their normal I felt like company able to talk to others about my business this weekend, I felt confident, even coolest iq, fantastic day leaves rue says, clarity, enlightenment, visionary, energized and inspiring. Beautiful. We also have ah, michelle from the uk who is actually one of your facilitators, michelle, right making a start this weekend and we lost it because there's so many coming in and start giving myself this time setting this time and having a plan that I love beautiful and deb killed a ford says, just wanted to celebrate one thing, which is the fact that I really get it now. Yes, that means you're right bringing entrepreneur yes, all of that. The thing I really love about that in particular, is because, you know, we covered so much today and the two days before that, and we may not have been able to get every single detail, and actually what you have is the most important thing, a new way to think about approaching business new permission to give yourself so that you can do this on your own and take it deeper because even if you finished your whole right bring business plan I talked about how you can use this process for particular pieces of your business, right? So when you do the podcast packaging of that for the mullahs making thing you can kind of take yourself through some of these processes using francis as a example see, you guys have the tools and you've learned that and I think that's the most important takeaway is this is a repeatable process you can take yourself through now you guys have the permission to do it in a fun way yes yeah we have joanna w that she was able to celebrate her big vision collage get some clear ideas around branding and she opened her male chip account connected with rebecca is night audience now she has a clear picture of numbers and financial goals finally she's owning entrepreneurship wow who are serious here?
