During the 2021 Violand Management Associates Business Planning Retreat in Canton, Ohio, Chuck Violand sat down with R&R to share his observations of attendees over the years. He talks about the importance of small business owners looking beyond the granular, short-term aspects of their companies to drive growth. He also shares how year after year, the business plans and the people behind them evolve. As the strategic mindsets of those leaders mature, so too do their businesses, from an engagement and financial perspective.
