You have just taken the first step to making your adventure business more successful. Knowing how to develop a company is one of the most important skills an entrepreneur can have.
Intimidated by the idea of growing your adventure business? Don't be.
Over the next 10 weeks or so, I'll walk you through all the steps to take your adventure business to the next level. Or the next 10 levels. If you're launching an adventure business or a complete beginner at the business end of things, no worries. The Adventure Business Development course starts from the very beginning and will help you kick it up a notch in no time...
We'll start from scratch. In fact, the first posts will be about articulating your company's mission, vision, and philosophy. Not the most glamorous stuff, I know, but we're building from the ground up and the first thing we need is to make sure we have a solid foundation to build on. If you're going to do this, you may as well do it right - if you're not clear about who you are as a company and precisely know what you're trying to achieve, you're simply not going to get anywhere.
Once we're done with the conceptual stuff, we'll move into the more practical side of things by establishing goals worth pursuing and developing specific strategies to get the results you want. This is where things will start to click. You'll begin to see possibilities that you never saw before...
After you've worked your way through the basics of designing a solid long-term strategy, we're going to shift our focus to implementing the changes that will yield the greatest results for you. In the end, I'll show you how to put it all together to create a step-by-step plan that you and your team can start implementing right away.
You will likely have questions along the way. You can post them in the comments section (I do my best to answer as many as possible, but realize that it is not always possible for me to answer all of the questions that pop up). You can also find answers to your questions by signing up for a "One-on-One Session".
If you prefer a more hands-on approach, getting your own personalized "Kick Ass Action Plan" might be something you want to consider.
And since building a successful adventure business is a journey rather than a destination, bookmark the front page and sign up to my email list for a regular dose of the latest tips and techniques - and occasional silliness.
Most of all, remember to have fun and share your breakthroughs to help and inspire those that will come behind you. There's a worldwide community of adventure business owners just like you. Let's be supportive of one another!
In closing, I want to share with you this Ze Frank video ''An Invocation for Beginnings'' to get you all fired up and encourage you to begin once and for all.
And as Ze Frank says so eloquently in this video... Let's start this shit up!
