January has just passed. I don't know about you, but I like the beginning of the year because it gives me a chance to make new beginnings. I love New Year's Resolutions. I don't always stick to them but it is fun to set a goal and do what you can to strive for it.
And after January is done, February is the time for Resolution Renewals! Because, if you're like most people (and I think that you are!) you fudged a little on your resolutions around the end of January. (I did, too).
In business, we all start out with great excitement and anticipation of where the road could lead us. And often, the first few months are fuelled by exactly that: excitement. Then the bills start coming in and it's time to get down to “brass tacks” and do the work. The best thing to do is have a strong foundation, with a business plan. You'll find literally dozens of Business Plan Samples to help you ensure that you'll have a sound direction to take your business beyond the honeymoon period.
