December is National Write a Business Plan Month. So, if you’ve been thinking about starting a business, or you just need to refocus on your existing business, now is the time to do it!
But, writing a business plan is easier said than done. Here a few first steps you can take in creating your business plan or refocusing your existing business.
- Spend time reflecting. Spend an hour (or two) reflecting on the direction, mission, and core values of your business. Then, incorporate those thoughts and concepts into your business plan with a corresponding financial plan that supports your goals.
- Get a little help from your friends. The Chamber is your trusted resource.
