Looking for inspiration I start to stare out of the window. Well what was the first thing I spied? A slimline tabby cat chasing a squirrel. Certainly something that made me smile. The best part about it was the squirrel gave the tabby the run around up and down the grass verges …
It looked like the cat needed to go to the gym, but eventually the squirrel took to the trees and the cat looked really quite fed up. I have to admit I wondered if I could use this to my advantage and turn the story into my next blog post. Now all sorts of things came to mind including chasing goals and being the front runner, so was I set up for this week’s blog – maybe.
Well I dusted it off and starting sneezing for the next few hours afterwards. I went back to revisit what I had said all those years ago. Yes I know I should use the business plan as a working document and mine is, once – every few years or so, however having attended a couple of recent seminar’s I have made an active decision to review at least quarterly – I’ve even put it in my diary and planned the time.Thinking about chasing goals, my mind went into overdrive, what is it that I’m trying to achieve with my business, where do I want to be in three and five years’ time, do I actually have any long term goals? So remembering that folder I put together way back when I first started in business – now what’s it called – Oh yes I dug out my business plan.
Quickly though some of the things that were in that original plan made me laugh (I mean come on who has ever had real guidance on business plans?), but one of the targets I have actually achieved, which is being able to offer customers a full Health and Safety Testing service.
I would love FTS Safety Solutions to be the top company in Milton Keynes offering Portable Appliance Testing, providing the professional service, while being at the top of most companies supplier list. However being the front runner is difficult as since setting up the business the competition has become so challenging.
Until next time …Anyway, remember FTS Safety Solutions offers a professional first class service in testing while meeting the current code of practice so please call us on 0330 6600264 or ping me an email.
