IF YOU DON'T HAVE A PLAN
There's no better time than now to get one. In a storm, economic or otherwise, you don't want to be the ship that's lost at sea without a rudder. Without a plan you could actually sink. That's why one of the seven actions to survive and thrive in a recession is: Develop a good plan, and act on it. Companies with a written plan outperform those without one. A good plan depends on a core ideology to provide guidance and direction.
Now is the time to define your core and craft your strategic plan. Make sure it includes a sales assessment and plan. Then execute it. Don't wait!
