Did you know that December is National Write a Business Plan month? Whether you are looking to start a business or are a current business owner, creating a business plan is one of the most important steps you will take because the plan serves as your road map for the early years of your business.
A well thought out plan helps you to step-back and think objectively about the key elements of your business venture and informs your decision-making on a regular basis.
Here are some reasons to have a business plan:
It’s essential if you’re seeking a loan or investment
You’ll make big spending decisions with confidence
You’re more likely to catch critical cash flow challenges early
Having a business plan minimizes your risk
It’s a solid foundation for strategic planning, prioritization
It will help you set achievable goals and milestones
Your business plan is an asset if you ever want to sell
The importance of having a business plan and reviewing it regularly goes far beyond simple planning and goal-setting. The key is to just get started.
