SMALL BUSINESS PERFORMANCE
From inception to growth to maturation, operating a small business day-to-day can force reaction over action which can lead to short-term results at the sake of long-term success. With small businesses, oftentimes just getting through the week or even the day while ensuring that payroll is made and the lights remain on can quickly become the primary objective. For a pathway to success and long-term viability, it is crucial for small businesses to become proactive in ensuring that operational performance and organizational health remain robust through long-term direction planning that leads to positive cash flow with sustainable revenue and profit.
