Do You Have Control Of Your Business
Does Your Business Have Control Of You?
In my forty-five years of dealing with small and mid-size businesses I have seen few business owners who "have control over their businesses." Instead, I have observed many businesses that "have control over their owners." What do I mean? Few business owners do much in the way of planning. Business owners who do planning (short term, near term and long term) have control because they know where their businesses are going and how they are going to get there. That's not to say they have some sort of crystal bowl where they can see what is going to happen each day, but they have a general plan in place that provides them direction on how to manage the big picture, and, if they need to made adjustments due to unforeseen happenings or changes in market conditions, they can more easily make those adjustments, without complete changes of direction
The Real Success 3 Step
(Part 1 of a 3 Part Series)

By Al Spinks a Silver Fox Advisor
In this series of articles I will share with you a simple 3-step process on how to create and sustain real success. I'm speaking of the type of success where we can systematically achieve our goals even in the face of insurmountable odds and distractions.
The word success has many definitions. defines success as:  "The attainment of wealth, favor, or eminence." However happiness and fulfillment seems to be missing from this definition. We've all heard of individuals who have an abundance of wealth, favor and eminence but still aren't happy.
I define real success as: "Identifying, attaining and maintaining the desires of your heart." This definition realizes that wealth, favor and eminence may factor into our success but they are typically a means to an end and not the end result sought after.
