Is Your 2015 Business & Marketing Plan in Place?


Ok we're almost at the end of your 2015 business and marketing plan ready to go? Do you have your big picture goals plotted out? Do you have your annual marketing calendar in place? What? You don't? I'm shocked! Naw...I'm not really...the majority of small business owners don't do enough planning, so if you're not totally ready for the New Year yet, I get it.
