How to Predict The Future of Your Business

What if you could know what’s going to happen in your business at this time next year? It would be crazy, right?

For most moms and CEOs this would probably give you a sense a peace and comfort. Not only that, but with more insight it could give you a better chance at making a game plan to hit your goals!

I am excited to have you back with us for the podcast! Ready to dive into a topic that’s been huge for our business – Key Performance Indicators, or KPIs. These guys have been a game-changer in our business and personal growth journey. But hold on, because there’s something else we’re excited to share: scorecards.

Thinking back to a time before we became the Rainmakers, navigating the unknown waters of entrepreneurship as wedding photographers without KPIs or scorecards. It was all gut feelings and hope, filled with anxiety, especially during those lean months.

Now, fast forward to our days as Rainmakers, and KPIs and scorecards have become our guides. Think of KPIs as the metrics on your scorecard – the lines that provide clarity and direction. It’s like creating a game where you make the rules and keep score to determine if you’re winning or need to change things up.

Whether you’re just starting out or steering a business towards scaling new heights, KPIs and scorecards are your friends. They act as a safety net during the slow times and can predict the future path for your business’s growth. Here at Rainmakers, we’ve woven scorecards into our daily operations, using them to set goals, make predictions, and gain cool insights.

Ready to start your KPI journey? All you need is a basic spreadsheet, like a digital scorecard. Create a list of the responsible parties and the KPI categories, similar to the rows and columns of a scorecard. Set up quarterly goals that align with your big vision. Focus on a few key metrics that really drive your business. 

Our Rainmakers experience is living proof of the awesome power of KPIs and scorecards. By zeroing in on the top three drivers of your business, tracking them religiously through your scorecard, and setting real goals, you’ll see amazing growth.
