“Most entrepreneurs that I encounter are looking for an easy road to success, and don’t
have a strategic plan for achieving success. What do you want to achieve or avoid? The
answers to this question are objectives. How will you go about achieving your desired
results? The answer to this you can call strategy.” – William E. Rothschild
