Do you have a plan for your business?
If you said no, then you’re probably in the same place I was just a few months ago.
Several months back, I got the crazy idea to start a business (Writing Dressage is only a teeny part of said business). At first, I was like “Yes! This is the best idea ever!” Then came the reality check: yeah, I needed a plan.
My memories of business plans were pretty… unpleasant, to say the least. I can thank college for that. But, I can also thank college for bestowing upon me the great yet burdensome knowledge that business plans are crazy important if you want to succeed in business.
While business plans generally follow the same basic format, their specific details vary from business to business, depending on what model you follow, what your strategies are, blah blah blah.
So, over the next few weeks, I’m going to help you guys figure out exactly what it is you NEED to have in your business plans, what you SHOULD have, what you could include if you really wanted to, and what you can totally omit. Each lesson will follow along in a workbook that will be available next week and end with actionable steps that are so much less terrifying than college made me think they were.
When you’re done, you’ll have a complete business plan that you can use to give your business the kick in the pants it needs to succeed.
Let’s get to work!
