5 Ways to Create a Strategic Life Plan
5 Ways to Create a Strategic Life Plan

Start looking at your strategic life plan with the lens of value. What is the value you're bringing to every day, every week, every month?
  1. Vision: What do you see?
  2. Achieve: What is that thing you want most?
  3. Learn: How will you grow?
  4. Understand: What will you begin to understand about your life unfolding
  5. Experience: Don't just work hard, but play harder and have fun.

All businesses are evaluated in five key areas - business strategy and goals, growth and performance, employee practices, customer service, and community involvement.
If you know a small business that is committed to its customers, employees, and community, give them the special recognition they deserve by nominating them for the 2019 Dream Big Awards!
