This year brings with it new challenges, new plans, new small business support and a lot of new questions. It is particularly difficult for business owners to navigate the flood of new information daily, coupled with the uncertainties of the economy and lingering pandemic. The good news is that there are steps that can be taken right now to ensure a more prosperous future.

It all starts with decision making and intentionality. While there are no doubt myriad challenges out there every day, standing still could be a damaging — and even fatal — choice. There is nothing wrong with an intentional pause; the best climbers will take time at basecamp to plan and reassess the next path. A business can certainly do the same, and this can often be very healthy. Maybe the business still needs to store up some more cash or refine a product offering. However, at some point, all businesses are either going up or down the mountain. The competition may already be on the move, so don’t get left behind.
