A Different Way to Look at Business Plans

The Time Most People Think of Writing a Business Plan is When They are Looking for Money.They need it to take to an angel, VC or to their bank.  And that’s great, because you will certainly have to have a great Business Plans to get money these days.

But, what about businesses that are already underway and aren’t seeking funding?  What about a business plan for what you will do with your business over the next year in order to reach your long-term goals?  Most business owners don’t even consider business planning in this way.  In fact, I have found that 95% of those who come to me for coaching do not have a business plan for their existing business.

A little business planning can go a long way.  And I’m not talking about a business plan that you spend a whole lot of time and energy on and then gathers dust on a shelf.  I’m talking about a blueprint for growing and managing your business that you use every day – literally. 

That is what Street-Smart Business Planning is all about.  It doesn’t take a big time investment.  You can do it yourself.  You don’t have to be an expert.  It’s lean and mean.  And, most importantly, it works. 

Street-Smart Business Planning is all about deciding how to best use your time and money.  This is an issue central to all small businesses because time and money are always limited.  There is never enough of either to go around.  And it’s up to the owner of the business to set the priorities for how these resources will be used. 

Without a business plan, you’re flying blind.  You have no idea whether you are using your resources wisely or throwing them out the window.  All business owners feel overwhelmed by how much there is to do.  The best way out is to become crystal clear about where you want your business to go and create a specific, actionable business plan to get there.

This free business plan download will take you step-by-step through the process. It will show you how to:

  • Take a quick 360 degree view of your business – what’s right with it and what needs work
  • Use that feedback and decide what the Critical Issues facing your business are
  • Establish Decision Making Criteria to help you and others make sound decisions about your business
  • Create a business plan for the next year and create action plans to make it happen

People all over the world have been using my Street-Smart Business Planning for the last ten years.  And the results are amazing.  Give yourself the gift of control of your business.  Remember, every day that you are not running your business, it is running you!

The biggest resistance to business planning is that people believe they don’t have the time to stop and do it.  Wrong.  You don’t have the time or money not to plan.  It’s your business.  Make it the absolute best it can be.

In the process you will gain a clearer perspective on your business than you have ever had. And you will feel empowered! Because you will know exactly where you are going and exactly what it will take to get there. Give it a try.  You will be glad you did.
