Why You Need A Business Plan – Part 1

why you need a business plan

Do you have a business plan for your business?

It’s been about a month since we posted a link to the Entrepreneur Series that we are working on with Frank Thomas, of the Small Business Tips Show.

Today, we’re posting the third installment of this series, and it’s all about a business plan.

When recording the webcast on this topic, Frank and I quickly discovered that it is a topic that requires a lot of depth and a lot of discussion. Rather than just skipping over some high points, we decided to create a two-part series.

Now, I know there’s been some talk lately about whether you actually need a business plan or not. But, call me old-fashioned, I still maintain that your business plan provides the foundation upon which your business is constructed.

So check out part one now…and stay tuned. We’ll be posting part two in a couple of days.

Watch our video here, or watch on YouTube.

Until next time…

Pursuing Perfection Paralyses

Nobody’s perfect, right?

We’ve all been there. We’re working on a project and have made some great strides towards its completion. We have pursued perfection, done our final review and final revisions, add the final touches and – voila! Yes, we are ready to launch it!

The only problem is – well, we don’t!

Maybe we can just reword this one area. Maybe we can add another dimension to it over here. Or wait!  Let’s find some different pictures to augment it.  Or… maybe we should add video.

Let’s face it. Everything in life is a work in progress.

Nothing is ever set in stone, whether it is a business plan, a budget, or a project for your business.  Personally, I can look at something I have written and see a way to reword it every time I read it. If I continually reviewed and rewrote everything I have ever written, I would never have completed anything.

So, you do what you can, capture the best of what it is that you are looking to present, and run with it. If you don’t, you will never finish anything.

Why do we do this?
