“You can’t get where you want to go unless you know where you are starting!” Many times, when businesses are started – they just start selling, often missing mundane tasks, such as planning and preparing for growth.  Of course, desperate times call for desperate actions; we work to make money, not to get stuck in, as my friend Ken says, “paralysis of analysis.” Nevertheless, I would bet that many of the businesses that don’t last very long are those that never fulfill their Existence Level needs.  Those include:

These are foundational to your business.  They don’t actually sell a lick, but they make sure that your business has firm footing for all of the decisions that need to be made.  However, many of these activities are those that are overlooked, and leave many businesses flapping in the wind. Be extraordinary.  Start your business the right way.  Have a strong foundation.
