Do these Seven RoadBlocks Sound Familiar?
If you’re starting, growing or buying a businesses, you’ll understand my story. I am a home-based small business owner who needed to develop a business plan in order to start my business. When I set out to create my first business plan, I hit roadblock after roadblock, and, pressured for time, I finally started my business without a written business plan. After slugging it out in a feast and famine market for six years, I went broke and lost everything I had worked so hard to gain. I was devastated! I learned the hard way how vitally important it is to have a business plan. You don’t need to retrace my steps or endure the mistakes I made! Yet, when I set out to write my business plan, I discovered these daunting roadblocks.
Roadblock #1: Business Planning Knocks Me Off The Path To Start-up/Growth
Solved – Clear Step-by-Step RoadMap
Developing my first business plan was like pulling teeth! All I wanted was to get my business started and do the work I loved to do, yet I was being forced into to developing a business plan, which I knew nothing about. Like you, I did a lot of homework. I read books on business planning. I attended business planning workshops and courses and networking groups. I invested far more time than anyone should learning how to navigate the murky waters of researching and writing my own business plan.
Roadblock #2: Nobody To Guide Me Through The Market Research Maze
Solved – Fully Integrated Market Research
Then I discovered another challenge with the business planning process. Everyone will tell you that you need to do a thorough job of your market research. In fact, most businesses fail because of inadequate market research. Yet, when I dug deeper, I could not find a clear market research process for novices. It was like the research piece was separate from the business plan, with no clear directions on how to connect the two processes!
Roadblock #3: It Costs Too Much To Hire a Professional To Do My Business Plan
Solved – Easy To Do It Yourself!
At the depth of my frustration, I tried hiring a consultant to develop my business plan for me. I was shocked to learn that the fees would cost all of my business start-up funds and then some. And even if hiring a consultant was an option, I would be doing most of the work anyway. Consultants can bring great value if you can afford them, but I was a small home-based novice without a lot of money to get my business started. With limited money, the only option for me was to push forward and do my own market research and write my own business plan.
Roadblock #4: Acchhkkk! Financials! I’m Not A Freaking Accountant!
Solved – 3-Year Financials in Under 4 Hours
Are you terrified of financial projections? I was. Yet the financial forecasts are absolutely critical to your business plan and necessary for the your business to succeed. It was crushing to learn that I was expected to do a number of financial reports (sales projections, cash flow forecast, pro forma income statement) about which I knew nothing. Now I’m expected to become a fully qualified accountant before I could get my simple microbusiness off the ground? It seemed as though I was drowning and someone had thrown me an anchor!
Roadblock #5: Everyone’s So Critical and Negative
Solved – Positive Support When You Need It Most
I found it daunting to speak with gatekeepers (bankers, managers of business assistance programs, etc.) They were in a position of power, holding the key to the funds I needed in order to build my business. Because I wasn’t confident, it was easy for them to reveal my ignorance with their probing questions and I at times I felt as though they were shooting my ideas down. In what appears to be a swim or die environment, the less confident I was, the less I wanted to expose myself to ridicule by asking questions.
Roadblock #6: What’s With All The Fake Example Business Plans?
Solved – Real Living Business Plan Example
When writing a document of any type, I prefer to have a proven successful example to follow. I found it quite unnerving that the sample business plans I found were ficticious or altered beyond recognition in order to protect the owner. There are plenty of make-believe business plan samples, but it’s difficult to find real living examples.
Roadblock #7: Voids, Black Holes, Missing Links
Solved – Access All You Need In One Place
Finally, I smacked into the biggest single problem for anyone trying to create a business plan. After investing countless hours plowing through several books, CD’s, courses, articles and case studies – I could not find one system that gave me the full business planning process in one place. Lots of materials offered pieces of the puzzle, but invariably they rely on the user to fill in missing parts, to know things you just don’t know, or to have skills that don’t come naturally unless you’ve developed a business plan before. Nowhere on the planet is there a one-stop, how-to system for the do-it-yourself novice business planner… until now.
From those early efforts I realized I needed more than the business planning tools offered. So I set out to create the system I so desperately needed back then! I designed the Business Planner’s RoadMap and tested it by using it to develop my own business plan. I then asked several friends and collegues to test it. Over time I fine-tuned the process and crafted my business plan to use as a blueprint for my own business and a living example for others to follow. (Yes, my business plan is in the book, and it IS the real deal.)
“All team members came to this project with very limited experience with the ideas and vocabulary of business planning. The Business Planner’s RoadMap™ is quite simply the most well-written, clear, nearly fool-proof guide that we have seen for the novice business planner. By breaking the tasks down into so many small steps and providing good summaries of how these are to be done, Mr. Boudreau has made the whole process less intimidating and yet comprehensive.”

4. A business is not a “get-rich-quick” scheme. Many business tiny businesses serve the needs of their owners perfectly without the pressure of sky-rocketing profits. Through business planning, you design your business to meet your needs.
5. Your business plan is for you. The core purpose of a business plan is to prove or disprove your business case. Each step of the process will either increase or decrease your confidence in your business idea. At a certain point, after enough positive impressions, your confidence level will reach a point where you are ready to launch. As you research and build your business case, you get clearer about your business. As you gain clarity, you gain confidence. If this doesn’t happen, you will drop the business idea before it costs you a lot of money, before you lose your valuable investment. Increased confidence means you move forward, decreased confidence means you drop the idea. Either way, you win!
6. Your business plan is a tool to communicate with your target audience. Once you’ve proven your business case to yourself, you will be able to present and prove it to others, such as bankers, investors and partners. As the expert for your own business, you will be able to share your vision and attract the talent necessary to make your business vision a reality.
