• Fallacy of the plan – yes I wrote a book called the right-brain business plan and I do still believe it’s important to have a plan, but it doesn’t need to be the plan that you think it needs to be. You can’t have everything figured out. Things change. That’s why your RBBP is a living and breathing thing that serves as a guidepost and inspiration. – the work is in the doing and the getting things out there and making offers and working with customers, that’s what we’ll dive into in this book.
