ActionCoach, Suzanne Laidlaw, discusses the downfall of many small businesses as the holidays approach. Business owners get into a rut this time of year and focus on survival instead of a plan to be successful. Instead, Laidlaw states creating goals and examining your bottom line will help identify issues, solve them, and create a plan for success as the New Year approaches.
- Small business plays a vital role in our community, and people are often encouraged to support their neighbourhood businesses
- By failing to prepare, when economic times become tough, they fall into survival mode
- Instead of fumbling from month to month, simple business planning brings passion and fun back into business
“By failing to prepare, when economic times become tough, they fall into survival mode, forgetting it is possible to thrive.”
