Gwen Moran for Entrepreneur.com wrote a great small article entitled “Five Recovery Steps Business Owners Need to Take Now.” You can see the article here.
I agree with the five steps laid out, but would like to add another.
#6. Have a business plan to capitalize on the recovering market. This is actually a great time to start your business or grow your company. Money is cheap. Financing is out there. People and companies are starting to spend again. All of this leads to an improving economy, but without the right business plan in place, you can’t capitalize on it. It’s important to have a great plan, and then go execute it.
