Always forward, never straight

By Inga Andriessen

The title of today’s blog is attributed to many people, so I’m not sure who to actually credit for it. I personally learned of it recently when Lance Armstrong’s wedu.team adopted it as one of their inspiring quotes. As applicable as the quote is to endurance sports, it’s also applicable to business.

Now I know this sounds philosophical, but stick with me for a paragraph or two longer and we’ll get back on “legal” footing. A business that is growing will not always choose to stick to the same plan and just move forward, rather, it will explore a side issue that might take it in a different, but still forward direction.

As long as your business is always moving forward, you’re going in the right direction. This is not to say, don’t look back. The adage if we don’t learn from our mistakes, we’re bound to repeat them, applies even more so in business than it does in history.

When it comes to the legal aspects of your business, it’s important you check in regularly with your lawyer to ensure that forward path you are on is still compliant with the law. In our firm, we do annual checkups with our clients – these are phone calls where our clients update us on how the past year was and their plans for the next. This allows us to let them know of changes in the law that might impact them and help them keep moving forward.

Does your lawyer check in with you annually? Why not?

Back to moving forward!
