For most small businesses, the beginning of the year is often marked by new initiatives, grand schemes and lofty projects to be embarked on. However, it is not long before distractions come and plans fall by the way side. By the time is mid- year, you find yourself far from where you had planned to be.
One easy way to avoid this deviation and bring your plans to bear is by setting goals. This will help you focus your energy, time and resources in the direction of your dreams. Once you have created the big picture, the next step will be to break down your goals to more manageable pieces called objectives and create action plans.
