A plan must be developed from location all the way to the color of the walls in the kitchen. Would you dare attempt to build this house without some kind of a plan? Would you buy a home that was constructed without building plans drawn? The answer is a “resounding NO” A business plan is CRUCIAL to the successful development of your business venture. Whether this plan is ever used for raising capital, an investor, the bank, potential partners or just a roadmap to keep you on course, the thought process is invaluable to you as a business owner. A business plan is a living document, something you will refer to on numerous occasions and update, as the business goes through several cycles of growth. It is the one source that has all of your dreams and goals and contains all of the how-to instructions to implement. Do It!
