By Nicole Mangina | Nov 7, 2019

This post goes against pretty much every business plan ever written. You know the ones – the first 5 pages are spent disecting the current year, and from there you are supposed to spend the next 5-10 pages mapping out the next year? Have you ever actually filled out those first 5 pages? I mean…
