Foundations for Small Business
When asked about our business, most people start with the 'what' what do we do, what products do we sell, what services do we offer. But this kind of information is often temporary, uninspiring and insufficient to keep us engaged in business during the inevitable ups and downs. 'Foundations' is aimed at either reminding you or helping you to identify why you got into business and the important steps and components to 'going the distance'.
