    Goal Setting Re-Monetizing your Business Goals for the Post Disaster Era

    The 2020 Pandemic has altered the way we must look at our Business Goals. From personal and business outcomes that naturally impact our daily lives, re-setting goals is something we certainly need to address in a much more thoughtful and strategic manner. We will discuss the process of re-setting our goals premised upon our actual experiences and converting those into our business.

    Business Planning – Executing Your Plan Towards Success For Any Post Pandemic Situation

    We've had a quarter to update our business plans; how are we doing? How have our business plans changed? Are those pivoting tactics now part of business operations and regular streams of revenue? Pandemic mandates are easing. Regardless of this fact, business owners should continue enhancing the plan as we simply do not know what's around the corner.
