In what seems like a flash, another year has gone by. For someentrepreneurs, it's been a great year, and others are lookingforward to the promise of 2005. Wherever you and your business fallon that scale, there's no time like the present to assess whatyou did right in 2004 and figure out how you're going to keep agood thing going, or determine what went wrong and come up with aplan to fix it.
All entrepreneurs know they're supposed to have a plan. Youreally can't start a business without one (well, you can, butyou shouldn't). And if you're going to grow, you need aplan that you constantly refer to and update. I'm not talkingabout a business plan here (though I do firmly believe that ifyou're just starting your business, you need one of those). Inthis case, by plan I mean goals. Did you set goals last year? Thesecan be gauged by revenue, profit, growth, number of new clients,customers, product introductions or whatever measure makes sensefor your company.
