  1. Great show Patrick on creating a Strategic Plan! I love the idea of a one page strategic plan – simple, easy to use and reference. This is definately something every business owner should talk to you about!! Welcome and really looking forward to your next show.

  2. Patrick, I loved your show on Strategic Plans. From a lenders perspective, it is important that businesses have this in place to hold them accountable to their goals. Business owners can use this “game plan” to help keep them on track. Your idea of a one page road map is not overwhelming. What great advice this is. I look forward to your next show!

  3. Thanks for the great reminder to spend time working ON my business instead of only working in my business. I must admit, I am a bit intimidated about creating a strategic plan for 5 years!

  4. Nice show, Patrick, about how to use a strategic plan to close the gap between where your business is and where you want it to be. Very appealing to know that it can be done in 1 page, too!

    • Thanks for the feedback Pat. As we approach 2013, many Toledo area business owners are re-energized to create a “roadmap” to business success, while changing the way they look at their businesses. Our 1-Page Strategic Plan delivers the simple, comprehensive framework for this transformation.

  5. Great information and well presented Pat. I agree, this is an extremely important process for all business owners to engage in. Thanks Pat!
