A business plan is an essential business tool. If you're applying for funding or a loan, or looking for a business partner, you'll be expected to produce a professional business plan.
But they're not the only reasons why you need one.
Just as you wouldn't set out on a new journey without a destination and a map or sat nav, we don't recommend embarking on a new business without clear goals, and a plan to get there.
A business plan encourages you to consider every necessary element of your business - all the working parts that will help you succeed. And it will show you important holes in your thinking; potential problem areas you haven't considered, or opportunities you're missing.
Think of it as a jigsaw puzzle. Without a picture to follow, the jumble of jigsaw pieces you start with are difficult, if not virtually impossible to assemble. But when you have a picture to guide you, you can see how the pieces fit together to make a whole.
THIS is what having a business plan does for your business. And in this masterclass we guide you easily through writing your business plan with our own template.
In this high value class we'll guide you through each section of your business plan.
This class includes a Word copy of our own business plan template. During the class we'll explain why each section is important and what to write, and give you finished examples to guide you.
You also get a copy of our class slides, so you can read through the examples we share in more detail as you complete your own business plan.
So, after watching this class you'll be able to confidently complete a business plan for your own business - whether you choose to use our template or another.
