This is the second in a series of ten episodes about building better business Abs and strengthening your business core.

In this episode we will discuss the importance of starting the process of creating a roadmap for business success. It starts with writing it down.

It's a well known fact that a vast number of business problems and specifically many business failures are caused by a lack of thorough planning. This is almost always avoidable with enough forethought and planning. 

To build a stronger business core, increase your business muscle it is critical to set specific goals with definitive plans for reaching the short and long term objectives that will lead to profitability. This holds true for 'one-man' operations and multi-national megafirms.

Without a roadmap it's hard to achieve lasting success. This roadmap must answer the 'why' questions that we discussed in the first episode of this series. It must address what you want to achiee, how you will accomplish this and what resoures you will need along the way.

And most importantly it MUST be in writing. The act of transcribing your thoughts into an actual document refines and organizes them. Your written document is a resource that should be referred to frequently and shared with others. It constitutes a CONTRACT by which you will measure your success.
