    Use your boring time to write a business plan and set the goals you want to achieve.<br>With growth, comes increased overhead, be perpared to handle it. Set a reasonable to moderate growth rate. 10-20% annun. Try to avoid the temtation to become the &quot;Boston Market&quot; of the Green Industy.
