James Burgess, Focus31, Business Planning, ForestYou know the adage “you can’t see the forest for the trees“? Well that is business planning.  If you are always working in your business you are IN the forest and can’t see where and how it is growing or can’t see disease that should be cut out. You need to get above the trees to see the whole forest and understand its intricacies. Then you can begin to work ON your business.
