HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2014 3 SBDC Minimize risk and maximize with business plan By DARRELL V. ARNEIConsult- ant and Workshop Presenter for Technology Ventures Corporation Running a business without a management plan is like em- barking on a long road trip with- out a map: You might reach your destination eventually, but not without wasting time and money on unnecessary detours, dead- ends and delays. Planning and controlling are the two legs on which a well- managed company stands. Plan- ning involves setting goals, de- termining how to reach them and, finally, doing what's necessary to attain those goals. Controlling involves putting the plan in mo- tion and monitoring its progress over time. Where are we? Just like the "you are here" arrows that direct first-time shop- pers at an enormous shopping mall, awareness of one's starting point is essential to a well- thought-out business plan. At this phase, a business owner needs clear answers to a few questions, such as: 1. What is the business's ob- jective or reason for being? 2. What is the business's fi- nancial background? 3. What external forces does the business face in the form of competitors, suppliers and cus- tomers? 4. What are the business's internal strengths and weak- nesses? Do the business's manag- ers have the skills to keep the enterprise on course in a turbu- lent economy? Where do we want to he and when? The next step in planning requires predicting what the busi- ness might encounter at some dis- tant place and time that can't be seen. This skill requires a man- ager to be both realistic and opti- mistic while thoughtfully consid- ering: 1. Where does the business want to go and how fast does it want to get there? In business terms, this means what territory does the business hope to serve success and with what products?

Continued from Page 1 at USDA provided $3 million to the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI) at the University of Missouri and the Agricultural and Food Policy Center (AFPC) at Texas A&M (co- leads for the National Association of Agricultural and Food Policy), along with the University of Illi- nois (lead for the National Coali- tion for Producer Education) to develop the new programs. "We're committed to giving farmers as much information as we can so they can make an in- formed decision between these programs," said Vilsack. "These resources will help farm owners and producers boil the informa- tion down, understand what their options are, and ultimately make the best decision on which choice is right for them. We are very grateful to our partners for their phenomenal work in developing these new tools within a very short time frame?' Starting Monday, Sept. 29, 2014, farm owners may begin vis- iting their local Farm Service Agency (FSA) offices if they want to update their yield history and/ or reallocate base acres, the first step before choosing which new program best serves their risk management needs. Letters sent this summer enabled farm own- ers and producers to analyze their crop planting history in order to decide whether to keep their base acres or reallocate them accord- ing to recent plantings. The next step in USDA's safety net implementation is scheduled for this winter when all producers on a farm begin mak- ing their election, which will re- main in effect for 2014-2018 crop years between the options offered by ARC and PLC. Today's announcement was made possible through the 2014 Farm Bill, which builds on his- toric economic gains in rural America over the past five years, while achieving meaningful re- form and billions of dollars in savings for the taxpayer. Since enactment, USDA has made sig- nificant progress to implement each provision of this critical leg- islation, including providing di- saster relief to farmers and ranch- ers; Strengthening risk manage- ment tools; expanding access to rural credit; funding critical re- search; establishing innovative public-private conservation part- & OPER.ATED 575494-1385 ~ide variety of (ills for: * Wcltness ~ Spa * Living A For more info, contact Rebecca Richins-Varela at 770-856-8908 algo County -- IIII ERALD Mexico Press IIIi ciation Member unty Herald (USPS 020697) is published weekly by unty Herald in the City of Lordsburg, County of Hidalgo, el Drive, Suite B, Lordsburg, New Mexico 88045-1948, 52 issues a year.
