Managing a business can be very exciting, a lot of fun and, well, very stressful. You’re thinking of all the things that could go wrong. You’re thinking about all of the things that you hope go right. You’re trying to forget that thing you heard about new businesses and the first three years…yadda, yadda, yadda. You want to be the exception to the rule. The breakout success story. You’re so focused on what you don’t want to happen, you overlook the one thing that you really should be doing: planning your success story and not just hoping that you’re a success story. More often than not, the latter is a business owner’s narrative. Why is that? What can be done to change that?
