Be sure to use the required headers to organize your post.

The mission statement should be in quotation marks anywhere you use it in your discussions or assignments. Revise the mission statement to include what you do, what makes you unique, and your core values. Check out the Trader Joe's example in the second post in the discussion.

Teacher feedback

Revise weaknesses 1. Weather and competition are both threats. Weaknesses are internal to the company and those aspects you can improve on. Think of your financial situation, customer relationship, product or service, growth, and development, and see if there are some specific aspects you can improve on. Examples would be: a weak brand, inexperienced staff, quality issues, etc.

Revise opportunities 4. Opportunities are not under your control and cannot be created. You can just take advantage of them to grow the business. These should be stated to specify the external factors you plan to take advantage of to grow the business: events, trends, etc.
