So you followed all the advice given in this series of articles. You went out and got yourself a book on business plans. After spending several sleepless nights you finally have in your hand THE business plan for your EVE Corporation. Then about a year later, after some success, your corporation starts rolling downhill and after a couple of months of this all you have left is a mothball fleet, a few die hard members and a broken dream.
Unfortunately, this scenario is a very real probability that you should face now, instead of then. I am not saying be pessimistic. If you are not overly optimistic, then your plan will never work. You have to have optimism, drive and motivation. I do want you to be prepared though. This doesn''''t mean you can''''t start anew. This doesn''''t mean you can''''t reform a different plan. What this does mean though is you should have what is known in the business world as a bailout plan.
