Success doesn’t just happen: it is achieved through careful planning. Planning is the most important thing you can do to ensure that your business will grow. Planning out your 2020 calendar allows you to have effective times-lines, solid action-plans, and powerful execution.
An effective calendar will have three fundamental components:
- Martial Arts School – Curriculum, Belt testing, Buddy Days, Holiday Events, Camps, Workshops, etc.
- Business – Est. Taxes, Workers Comp, Sales Tax, Insurance Renewals, etc.
- Personal – Family Events, Doctors & Dental Appt., Vacations, etc.
It is vital to consider all of these to make your calendar as complete as possible.
Let’s dive a little deeper into the martial arts component of your calendar. All activities should encompass or more of the following five areas: enrollment, retention, renewal, serving the community and team development. Every time you create an event, you should ask yourself which of these it is promoting. Belt testing will help with retention and renewals while a Parents Night Out will serve the community and promote enrollment and retention.
It is also important to be able to pivot when needed. Flexibility is a key element of success and a growth mindset. Events may need to be moved, locations change, team members get sick and we need to be able to adapt and thrive regardless. Planning allows you time to develop the systems and execute them to ensure success.
