Good morning folks – I am Harry Brelsford, the author of the SMB Consulting Best Practices book, and I like to hold a vitual book reading each morning (0ver coffee!). Today’s passage relates to the specific marketplace you work in…it’s a topic that I will explore over the next several days.

Your specific marketplace

Up to this point in your business plan, you’ve determined why you’re here with your mission statement, set goals, and defined objectives to attain those goals. You know what services you intend to provide and how your SMB consulting practice will be organized. You’ve even cast your eyes toward profitability via growing revenues and cost control in the financial analysis section.

Now it’s time to see if the marketplace agrees with your planning. You will define what your markets are, based on segments and geographic location.
