Structure and Practicalities




Structure and PracticalitiesHow to bring your ideas into existence takes careful planning. You may have some experience already. What IS certain is that if you do not plan well the business will fall on its face before long. At best it will bumble along without fulfilling its potential.

Your early planning is your chance to get it right on paper first. If it doesn’t seem right you can tear it up and start again if necessary, with no damage done.
