How To Write A Business Plan In 5 Easy Steps

Let’s get this out up front – if you are a small business owner, especially one who has just started or owns a relatively new small business, and you don’t have a business plan, you must love living in chaos!

Running your small business without a business plan is like deciding to go on a holiday and just jumping on the first ‘plane you see at the airport without the right clothes or the right currency and just hoping that you have a good time.

If you want to create the business of your dreams, if you want to avoid the day to day chaos, if you want to stop the frustration of working hard with no real achievement, then you need a business plan, and when you see how easy it is for you to write one yourself, you will be able to move your business step-by-step along one cohesive direction toward your ultimate goal.

Why Most Small Businesses Fail Within 5 Years

Business Plans Help You Succeed

Are Your Short Term Goals Aimed At Long Term Objectives?

Not many small businesses have prepared a business plan.

How can anyone risk their savings and their dreams to open the doors of their new business without a plan?

Don’t get me started! You wouldn’t go grocery shopping without some sort of plan – the shops you need to go to, the route to them in the right order, preparing a shopping list and taking it with you, making sure you have enough fuel in the car, working out where you will park.

Yet many people start or run a business without any plan at all – and a to-do list does not constitute a plan by which you should risk your thousands of dollars!

Now if you do have a business plan, good on you! It means you are taking this seriously, as you should!

But let me ask you this – are the goals that you have listed long-term goals or short-term goals? Read More

From Vision To Strategy

Last week I gave you a system to make your vision statement come alive and become a day-to-day measure of what you do, what decisions you make, and where you go from the now to the future.

If you haven’t seen that lesson on how to make your vision real, then go back to teikoh.com and search for the article and video lesson published on 29th January 2019. Go now, then come back here!

In that lesson, I talked about the four perspectives by which you should define your vision, making it real by describing exactly what your business will be like from these four perspectives, and therefore using them as measures on achieving your vision as well as guides on your day to day behaviours and decisions.
