Business Plan Essentials: Part One
A business plan is more than your mission statement, it's your plan for success. A good business plan determines the likelihood of receiving outside funding and credit from suppliers. It’s a roadmap for the achievement of your goals and objectives by detailing the management of your operation, finances and marketing and promotions.
Business Plan Essentials: Part Two
With any success you’ve found the process of writing your business plan helps you in more ways than you originally thought. The process forces you to think about your business objectively, giving you a more realistic idea of the effort required and whether it’s truly a venture you want to pursue. In addition, it sparks your creativity, leading to the formation of new business strategies.
