You may wonder “what is an opportunity session?” I am glad you asked. We sit down and discuss all of the known and potential opportunities that we see in the upcoming year. These opportunities pertain to business and revenue generation opportunities for the family.
We identify all current opportunities (ones in progress), all potential known opportunities (ones we have been contacted about and are still considering) and all potentially created opportunities (ones that we intend to create for ourselves).
This is an unfiltered session where Many and I sit and express our perspectives, ideas and feelings around all opportunities. We assign monetary values to the ones we know the value to as well as full descriptions of all opportunities. As we document all opportunities, we also categorize them for easier classification and implementation discussions.
This took most of the day. Which is great as that means there are many qualified opportunities of merit. We began when the birds started chirping and closed the session when the stars were twinkling. This is part one of a two-step process. Next step? That is our 2015 Strategy Session. This is where we develop our strategic plan of implementation along with time lines and responsibility assignment.
So far, it looks like 2015 is going to be a fantastically great year! We are eager and excited. Safe Travels!
