Small business profit is important at every stage of your business. How you perceive and achieve it varies depending on which stage you're at.
There are four basic business stages: Start Up, Tune Up, Move Up and Wrap Up. Each one carries with it a different profit perspective and set of solutions.
Select your profit stage and take an inventory of what you're dong to start, run, grow or sell your small business. You will certainly find things you could improve upon to step up your profit.
