November 2015

For the owner of a small business, this is the time of year for strategic
thinking and adding up 2015.  Yes, it’s our tax return information (not
due until April 30) that we can work on. Yes, it’s the end of the year,
which is for some of us the end of our fiscal year.  But there’s more to

Taking a look back.
        How did I do? Were my revenues up or down?
        What accounted for the results I show?
        What happened (good, great, not-so-great) to cause these results?
        What would I do the same in 2016?  What would I do differently?

Moving forward into 2016.
        What does my analysis of 2015 tell me about what to do (or not do) in 2016?
        Is my business on track?  If so, how do I keep it there? If not, what do I change?
        Is it sufficient to look only at 2016?
        What practices (new or renewed) should/must I put in place for success?

There’s a personal side to owning and running a business.
        What well-being practices are important for my top performance in business?
        Is my business satisfying to me?
        Is my business providing enough of a financial base for me?
        What personal challenges need to be addressed or even solved?

KAHBA is a place to meet and learn from those of us who have businesses
ranging from new to lots of experience.  We’re happy to share what we
learn and hear what you’re up to as a small business owner.
