I have a confession to make: about a week before I go to the dentist, I begin flossing daily. I brush extra hard. I drink a glass of milk each day. I swear off all sweets.

Then, after the dentist, what happens? I'm back to my old less-than-perfect routine: No flossing, too many sweets.

If my dentist really wanted to make sure I flossed more often and ate less candy, she'd schedule appointments closer together. That way, instead of going to the dentist every 6 months, I'd go every 3 months. Net Result? I'd double my flossing and halve my candy intake!

That's what this blog is about: a middle-of-the-quarter reminder for your business plan. Your business plan is the roadmap of your business to lead you from start-up to success. Take a moment to check to see if you are on track. If you are, great! If not, spend a few minutes to think of a way to get you back on track. It's easier to make a course correction in the middle of the trip instead of at the very end!
