At Aspyrre we recommend a “Working Business Plan”. It is easy to write and easy to change; the purpose is to ground you and keep you focused on your priorities, without wasting too much time before you have enough experience to know what is and is not realistic.
If you’d like some coaching to walk you through your planning process, send an e-mail to request a consultation. And, feel free to use the resources below to get started:

A plan is a great place to start, but putting it into action can be scary, stressful, and confusing. If you feel stuck and in need of clarity, having a coach can be a tremendous help. Imagine having someone objective you can discuss challenges with, bounce ideas off of, and leave every conversation feeling more confident in your decisions.
To get a sense of what we have available to support you, simply schedule a consultation, which is a 20-30 minute phone call, and we’d be happy to go over your specific situation, share how we approach it, and provide you with a quote for a variety of options at different price points.
