It probably does not come as a huge surprise that your score is in the lower range. It is important not to be discouraged as this does not mean that you cannot run a successful business. What it highlights is that there are a number of key learning areas that you will need to work on to ensure that you are going to move forward with a good knowledge and skill base. Membership to Absolute Best will be a huge benefit for you. All learning articles are colour coded to allow you to work on the key learning area you feel you need the most help in. To get you started we have included some suggested articles here, they are all free to access so please take some time to look through them and get a glimpse into what Absolute Best can offer you.

Introduction to business planning: This article is the first in our series on business planning. It sounds like you might have already done your plan, but this will give you a checklist just to ensure that you have not missed any of the key steps.

Working on versus working in the business: This article highlights the need to spend time working on your business. For many new business owners they spend all of their time working in the business and this often holds them back from long-term success as not enough time was put into planning and preparation.

Personal SWOT: This is one of our favourite tools to complete on an annual basis. It is a great way to re-set for the next twelve months. Use it to identify your strengths and weaknesses and to look for the opportunities for growth over the next twelve months.
