Running a business day to day is hectic, with so many things to think about it is easy to get caught up in all the messages and work that needs to be done day to day. Planning for the future can become something on the back of your to do list but it is so important to make it a priority. a goal without a plan is just a wish

You need time to reflect and to get back to what it is that you are trying to achieve. Every week I make a list of all the things that need to be done for Mum Plus Business. I also take time to reflect on the business and what our key objectives are. This is vital because you need to know where you are heading to. For example the key principles for Mum Plus Business are that we believe that all mothers irrespective of age, background and level of education are capable of being successful women. We also believe that there should be enough opportunities for mothers to work flexibly in order to develop themselves whilst also being able to spend enough time with their children. This is a great talk from James Caan, CEO of Hamilton Bradshaw, on the importance of putting time aside to think about your business – and his very particular and disciplined way of doing it. He spends every week 2 hours to see where the business is going and if he is making the right decisions
