As another fiscal year for my company is coming to an end, it is time to start planning for the next one and as I do every year I get to dive into last year’s budget to begin the process of building a new one. This gives me clear insight as to what we were able to accomplish and what we believe we will accomplish next. It also allows me the advantage to see if my predictions we correct, were there trends that I didn’t anticipate, and so on. I firmly believe that this is the single greatest tool a business owner or manager can have to run their company.
This particular year my curiosity got the best of me and in addition to looking at the previous year I decided to go back even farther.
