Business Plans? All The Cool Kids Have Them

Aug 16, 2009
Posted by Molly Nelson - I will freely admit that I'm a big fan of planning.  Various calendars, checklists, sticky notes, and the occasional Outlook reminder give me a handle on what I'm doing and where I'm going from day to day. 

Planning, especially in the form of a business plan, is also important for your business, as this post on The Industry Word blog makes clear.  The author encourages business owners to, "Take business planning as a process that involves changing assumptions and regular review and corrections....It's a step in a process that helps to manage change and steer the business." 

Interested in creating or updating a business plan?  The NASE's expert consultants at ShopTalk can help.
