pimp it out:

Do you have a detailed-driven, actionable plan that delineates the goals and processes within your company being used to reach your milestones?

The small, day-to-day functions each employee is responsible for can lead to climactic profits and the achievement of your operational goals. 

If your startup doesn’t have a robust business operations plan in place, you may be destined to continue swimming upstream without a paddle, working in circles, and losing valuable time and revenue.

Why an operational plan is essential for positive, pleasure-filled operations success

It is imperative to have a roadmap in order to achieve a scalable, sustainable, and orgasmic business.

Think of all the things you do in a day. All of the steps you go through and how that would affect your bottom line if just one of those steps were missed. 

That is where an operational plan comes in. We build the roadmap, you execute and succeed. That’s where the magic happens. 

Do you feel like things are running as smoothly as you’d like (or not at all), but aren’t quite sure where to start?

We’ve got you! Check out the four things needed to check off in order to work towards a pleasure-filled process.

Tech Stack Audit

BizOps Action Plan

Now it’s time to put it all into action with a business operations action plan. Let’s decide what is best to take action on immediately and what is needed for continual ease and growth throughout your plan.

There are also additional key components that go into whipping your operations plan into shape. 


Do you have systems and processes in place that enhance revenue generation? Instead of having sticky note reminders to complete next steps, having automations in place to ensure nothing gets forgotten or lost along the way, is crucial.

What about critical standard operating procedures to ensure smooth execution? You have your systems, but ensuring everyone knows how to use them will determine upward mobility for your business, as well as your employees. 

How well do you know your team? A confident and knowledgeable staff will allow you to focus on your zone of expertise while everything you delegate goes off without a hitch. 

Do you have metrics in place, along with key performance indicators, to know when and how to make smart business decisions? You don’t know what you don’t know. Keep track of everything to understand your bottom line and how to adjust. 

Last but not least, how do you measure your success? Without tangible goals, you will not be able to address needed improvements and celebrate hard-earned achievements.
