    Reading a book right now by Jeffrey Fox.... here are his top 5 of the top 20 priorities of a business owner

    1. Focus on marketing and selling at all times

    2. Keep your existing customers happy

    3. Market to your existing customers often

    4. Be quick to bill clients and collect monies owed

    5. Have excellent people working with and for you

    Is this list prioritized #1 being the most important? I think # 5 should be at the top JMHO without them nothing gets done properly or profitably. Yes I know nothing happens until someone sells something.

    This, in his opinion, is the order of importance.

    I agree that continual marketing should stay number one. If your not growing your dying.
