In the long run, it doesn’t matter whether the economy is up or down, shrinking or growing: Businesses with a plan always do better than businesses without a plan! Whether the economy is growing or shrinking, it’s always a great time to bring a little balance in your life, slow down a bit, and put things in perspective.

Your business needs a plan.

Very few people stumble around like Forrest Gump and make it to the top. In fact, zero people achieve that.

You also have to be flexible and spontaneous once you attempt to execute your plan. But, once again, this just reinforces the need for a plan. The planning will help you strategize and consider alternatives to your plan.

In the long run, it doesn’t matter whether the economy is up or down, shrinking or growing: Businesses with a plan always do better than businesses without a plan! Whether the economy is growing or shrinking, it’s always a great time to bring a little balance in your life, slow down a bit, and put things in perspective.

Some people are facing personal and business challenges as they look ahead. Others are hoping that this is their time to shine and break out from the crowd. Whatever your situation, it is much better to have a future that’s planned instead of an unknown future that will simply happen to you.

Nobody wants to fail, but very few people plan to succeed.

In the small business space, it is particularly true that very few people plan at all. We work to stay on the cutting edge of our industry, but that’s not a plan.

Most small businesses don’t have a business plan. Most don’t have a marketing plan. In fact, most don’t even have an Excel spreadsheet that tells them whether they’re making money or losing it!

Why?

  1. I know I should, but I don’t have the time
  2. It seems complicated
  3. I have more important things to do
  4. I know where I’m going; I just haven’t written it down
  5. I bought the software, but it looks more complicated now than it did before

Excuses, excuses, excuses.

Grab this great little resource by one of the most successful authors in the Small Business space – and start your business heading in the right direction!
