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.
