The cost was huge in terms of my credit and my bank account paying all that interest and at times penalties. Being a strategic business owner means taking the time to figure out what you need to do when and actually putting those tasks into some form of calendar that will prompt and remind you to take action. Those items can be bills due, employee performance plans to complete, tax returns to file and even an annual vacation to book because you know if you don't write it down, chances are it either won't happen or will happen late.

The mindset for getting organized and profitable in business is to just keep moving forward in the direction of your goals.
