If you have been reading my columns for a while, you know that I am big on planning. As we look at kicking off a new year, it is time again to turn your mind to planning, and specifically to thinking about the type of impact you want to make in 2017. The word “impact”
Picture this: You have a huge office, a full staff, a manufacturing plant, or your own commercial kitchen. It’s been your dream ever since you started your vegan business, and you’re giving it all you’ve got. But the reality is you aren’t there yet. Maybe at this point you’re a solopreneur or a small business with a few employees reaching for the stars. The question I want you to ask yourself today is, is big really where you want to go?
As you approach the mid-year mark for the year, it's a good time to do a quick assessment of your financials. I want to encourage you to resist the temptation to wait until tax season to file those receipts, download your payment transactions and review your banks statements. If you act now, you might be surprised to find items that can increase your net income this year.
