Business Growth Review

On a quarterly/six-monthly or annual basis (as best befits your business), take a day to review where your company is headed, and to identify the next step on your growth journey.  Inform this review with an honest appraisal of your customers, competitors, sales efforts, product portfolio and systems, and involve members of your team from different areas of the business.  Keep your discussions positive, but equally don’t assume that you are doing everything right.  Every business the world over has room for improvement.  Most business owners spend so long in their business – ensuring day-to-day success – that they seldom have time to work on it.  Once a year, find this time to raise your head above the parapet and honestly assess where you are, and where you’re headed.
