The new year is only 18 days away.

Eight… Teen…. Days.

So how’s your planning going for your business in 2018? Have you got your Marketing and Sales plans in place ready to start the new year with a bang? Have you got your financial plans in place to make sure you have a good cash flow and then a profit?

There is a well known quote in business “If you are failing to plan, you are planning to fail”, and truer words were never spoken. Whilst we all know that planning is imperative in business, that doesn’t always make us to do it. Daily tasks get in the way and often the “urgent” things get done and the “important” things don’t.

So here are 10 really good reminders on why you need to make planning a priority in your business to make a more successful business and a better life for yourself.
