Small Business Tips
1. Create a Business Plan and Goals
Create a plan that states what you want for your business, what you don’t want, and how you will achieve it. Choose a format that works best for your business. Often, business plans focus 3-5 years in the future and outline the direction a company will take to grow business and revenue. Include a mission statement and set of goals in your business plan to keep employees and executives inspired and motivated.
