Business Plan For Entertainers – Developing a Career Plan


You hired a VA, and the VA worked with you
on a business plan. Do you mind talking about this because a lot of performers don’t even
know what a business plan is, they’re just out there doing things. So let’s talk about
your business plan, how you developed it, and what’s in a business plan? I’ll admit, I’m really excited about this.
This changed everything for me. I have a couple of different VA’s, and one of them is kind
of my operations manager — we meet every week, we kind of go over what I accomplished,
what are the goals. And here’s what a business plan really is, it’s just a road map to where
you’re trying to get to. So if — let’s say your goal is to work on cruise ships and to
do — and then it’s breaking it down and saying, “okay, if I want to work on cruise ships and
have most of my income coming from that, what is the amount of money I’d like to make in
a year, and how many cruises realistically is it going to take to get there, and how
do I get to the point where they’re going to hire me for that many cruises? Do I work
on multiple cruises? Do I get an agent to” — I don’t know if anybody doesn’t go through
an agent for cruise ships — and then it just breaks it down, it takes your dreams and it
makes them into a goal — changes them into a roadmap that takes you to where you want
to go. And my business plan is not as detailed as
some businesses can get — you can get into like the marketing, and all kinds of different,
very specific things about it, but really what I did was say, “where do I want to be
in a year? Where do I want to be in 3 years? Where do I want to be in 5 years? And what
are the steps it’s going to take to get there, and how often do I need to make sure I get
to those goals?” And I think that having somebody to keep you accountable, like my VA — my
operations manager — is a great way to make sure that not only you’re keeping the end
goal in mind, but you’re actually taking the steps to actually get there because it does
get lost in the shuffle.
