If you fail to plan, you plan to fail!
Everyone knows what a business plan is, don't they.....
A business plan captures your vision and goals, and funnels these into a roadmap to help you to create, achieve and prosper.
Some people engage a specialist to write their plans for them. Others write a business plan to meet the requirements of their financier, with the financier hoping that by them putting pen to paper at the commencement of the venture this will be some guarantee of success.
There is no guarantee of success, but the process of working through the preparation of a plan takes you on a journey that makes you look at all areas of your business, how they interact, and how your skills and attributes interact with your venture. You are forced to look outside the square, outside your comfort zone because, in reality, that is wh
ere your business will take you.
