PASBDC CELEBRATES WRITE A BUSINESS PLAN MONTH
It’s the time of year for making a list and checking it twice … to help make sure your business readiness will suffice. December is National Write a Business Plan Month. The monthlong celebration was created to help prospective and current business owners small and large stay organized, be prepared and keep their companies running smoothly. If you have a great idea for a new business, don’t wait to make a New Year’s resolution. To hit the ground running after the calendar flips, resolve to spend the month of December formulating a business plan.
The PASBDC network offers free, confidential consulting to help you as you develop your business plan. Find your local center at pasbdc.org/centers for assistance.

WEATHER

Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

We’ll be on the opposite side of a warm front today with much milder air temporarily over the region, not unlike our mild Thanksgiving Thursday. Highs will head deep into the 50s with a stiff southwest breeze. Lingering morning rain showers will slowly end with the majority of the rest of the day leaning mostly to partly cloudy. Cold front moves through tonight and tomorrow with a return of more chilly air.
