Building A Business Plan

Starting a business can be easy, but the path to a viable and successful venture is rarely as easy. Together with determination and hard work, good planning is essential to the success of a new or expanding business. A thorough plan is an important tool to help guide your decisions.

Think of it as a roadmap to success…providing greater clarity in all aspects of your business, from marketing and finance to operations and products.

While it is tempting to jump directly from a great idea into startup mode or to expand a business without a plan, intentional planning is crucial in assessing the viability of a business. Planning out your steps creates the necessary focus to stay on track with measurable goals and timelines.

So, if you have a great idea or are wanting to expand on a good thing, building a business plan can be a “make it or break it” asset to your business.

This class is held one evening a week for three weeks. It allows you to work in an interactive “hands-on” setting with our consultants and other participants.

You leave with a basic plan that can be enhanced and expanded to fit your business and individual needs.
