    Planning Your Work, Before Working Your Plan

    Everybody knows that “Failing To Plan is Planning To Fail,” but unfortunately, many business owners still don’t have a business plan.  Almost anyone and every organization that is successful has devised and successfully executed on a plan, so why wouldn’t you?  Although it may take a little longer to get started, you will move forward much faster and easier.  While everything won’t happen according to plan, it will be a valuable roadmap, and you can always modify the route you take, just like with your GPS.
