It is great when our businesses are running smoothly. It is easy to take our eye off the ball, and not think about the future.
It might be that there is plenty of income coming in, but are we relying too much on too few customers? We do not know how fickle those customers might be, no matter how hard we work on their accounts.
Are our suppliers creeping their prices up faster than they deserve, and can we sustain those higher costs? Should we be shopping around?
Is our admin work becoming too much of a burden? Should we get assistance before it gets in the way of our production and our marketing time?
Is our marketing working, or are there signs we should make a change? Should we make a change anyway before it gets too stale?
When our business is failing we may not notice the signs, or we may ignore them. If we look around us we may realise when we are in trouble and take action, and ask for help.
There is no shame in asking for help.
