  • Long term business objective

    Hi Everyone,

    I've had a thought recently that I think is a good idea to share with everyone.

    To some it may be obvious to some it may not, but here it goes:

    "Where do you see you and your business in 10 years"

    Personally, I want to have sold my business and be sitting on a beach somewhere !!!

    What about everybody else ?

    Each to their own but I'm not sure that's the right approach.

      The end goal

      I respect Sharon for being so honest, I think there are lots of business owners that put on a whiter than white wholesome face of being ethical and not money orientated when a big buy out is their target at the end of the line. Take a look at the famous smoothly guys, healthy ethical etc etc but then they sell out to you know who. Lots of money usually is a consequence of success in whatever field you choose to participate in.

      My personal goal is to build a world recognised brand, that is respected as a thought leader in its field & to make a difference (Cheesy alert).

        It's a good question, it's vital to have goals and work out what you need to do in order to realise them.

        Nothing wrong with wanting to have sold your business, I think I'd get really bored if I didn't have something to work on!

        In ten years time I'd like to think I'd have a good reputation in my local business community and be the first point of call for anyone looking to manage their energy expenditure.

          I hope to be doing what I'm doing now but just a little bit better at a vastly inflated rate.

            Profitability is one of the most important objectives for any organization except non-profit. Company can be profitable in short-term or in the long-term depending on the nature of business

              In 10 years I'll be well along my way to global domination! I think what Sharon said about sitting on a beach is great - she has a goal and presumably an exit plan and there is nothing wrong with that. I have goals for different businesses I'd like to set up, stages of growth for current ones etc... but most importantly I'd like a Mercedes 300 SL Roadster
