Creating the Foundation and Structure of your business is crucial, even if you tweak it along the way, otherwise one might tread water and backtrack.
Nothing is written in stone, you can change what you are doing as you move along, so that your business grows as you grow. Some have a business for a number of years but have no foundation or structure to it, and it has them running in circles and the money is not coming in. When we get to the foundation and structure, along with some of the strategies below, the clarity and focus takes shape, and motivation builds as one sees themselves manifest their hopes and dreams in business.
You can start a business at any age; you're never too old or too young. I have helped people start their businesses and grow their businesses, and they are doing well.
