In a recent study by independent business funder Bibby Financial Services, 69 percent of business owners in the UK are optimistic that the economy will not decline in the coming year, and over half of the 1,000 businesses surveyed expect to see steady growth.
The study also revealed that many business owners are planning ahead with almost 60 percent stating that they had, or would be shortly, created business plans for 2014. Many are also looking to expand and exploring funding possibilities to support their ambitions.
Are you considering expansion or growth plans in 2014? If you are, are you confident that you have a strategy, and the systems and processes in place to support them?
