Business owners and entrepreneurs share a commonality in attitude: they are in business for themselves because they don’t want to be told what to do. This is both their cornerstone for success and their greatest risk. The goal of these Standards and Practices is to provide each owner with information, processes, and suggestions that they can adapt to their own operations and employ to their own business style.

Each section provides an overview that explains “why” a particular practice is necessary. In this manner, the owner can decide the importance to their particular work environment and prioritize the implementation of each suggestion. It should be noted that all of the practices work together, so ultimately, all of the practices should be implemented to some degree.
