You’ve heard it said that four out of five new businesses fail in their infancy. That’s a scary statement. We think it’s misleading. We think it should go like this – four out of five businesses that fail to plan fail.
The top value of the Business Planning 2012 Online Workshop is that you become the expert for your business by building your own business plan. Working your way through a business plan gets you grounded in your business and takes you to opening day with confidence. The business plan removes much of the guesswork, freeing up your energy to focus on serving customers and making money.
In 30 years of owning businesses and coaching others to start businesses, I have learned that there are five essential keys launching any business:
Understanding your industry.
Knowing your business.
Realistic action plans.
Access to funding, using clear and credible financial forecasts.
A well-researched, written business plan.
