2. What Is your estimated annual profit?
This will be the gross profit you figure after doing the previous calculations.
3. What is your biggest business concern?
How could your competitors steal market share? Where is your business vulnerable? A swot analysis is nice but you need to go a step farther in knowing your contingency plan.
4. How do you plan to fix this?
Have a clear vision of multiple alternatives in case adjustments need to be made.
5. Do you have a Digital Marketing Strategy?
If you don't know what this is you are in serious trouble if you think that you just set up a Facebook and twitter and a basic website and just forget about them you are also leaving money on the table.

10. How are you leaving money on the table or taking unneeded risks?
If you don't know the answer to most if not all of these question you are playing with fire.
