I believe the number one reason people don’t have a business plan is because people do not know they need a business plan. It has become my duty to educate people who want to go into business to have a solid business plan. Yes, you need a business plan to attain funding (loans, grants etc.) but you also need a business plan to give you a foundation and use as a strategic step-by-step plan.
Many people say they have a great idea or that they want to start a business, but those are just words, it only becomes reality when you plan and then act on that plan. It is always wise to have outside counsel and advice, that’s why I offer free consultation and advice.
