Feelings, perspectives, attitudes, and goals change at a drop of a dime.

What were your priorities and strategies 18-20 months ago before the Covid chaos started.  Could you have envisioned where you and your business would be today?  Perhaps there are things you recognize you were not prepared for or something you would want to do differently.  You may or may not have had a “plan” but likely were not actively engaged in planning, so you were caught off guard like many business owners.

COVID is hopefully a once-in-a-lifetime situation, however, it represents how quickly change can happen and how change can create ripple effects impacting many areas of your business, lifestyle, finances, family, employees, and community.  Suppose you haven’t spent quality time with your advisors in the last three months discussing the impacts of change in areas such as:

  • Federal and state policy changes
  • Key leadership bench strength
  • Supply chain
  • Inflation
  • Contingencies
  • Changes in family make-up or feelings about the business
  • Your feelings

If so, you have an outdated plan and will likely find yourself on your heels when the next fork in the road appears. And, on your heels means; you will be left in the dust by other businesses who have prepared and are able to capitalize on opportunities the market provides.
