Five tips when writing a business plan

Success is all about planning!

That’s why we strongly believe every business should have a plan in place for the year ahead.

But why?

A business plan will help you to set solid and realistic business goals and define strategies for achievement.

It’s basically a guide map to ensure you are on the right path to success!

Who wouldn’t want one?!

However, writing a business plan from scratch can be challenging and let’s be real, it’s even more challenging knowing where to start…

But don’t worry, we’ve got five top tips on how to create the perfect business plan:

1. Make it short and sweet

A business plan should be no more than 1-2 pages. By making it concise, it allows you to focus on what is important to you and your business.

Outline your purpose, the vision for your business and what you want to achieve – then go from there!

2. Accountability is Key

An essential ingredient to fuel the success of your business is being accountable.

When creating your business plan, ensure you are painting an accurate and achievable vision for you, your team, and your business.

After all, what’s the point of having an unrealistic business plan?

3. Have a plan of action

To achieve your specific business goal, you need an action plan!

An actionable business plan will clarify what resources are required to reach your goals and will help you formulate a timeline for when specific tasks need to be completed

4. Keep it Clear!

Next up, keep it clear and simple.

There’s no room for lengthy paragraphs of information! Try and keep each section limited to 1-2 sentences or 3-4 bullet points to assure you communicate your business ideas as clear as possible, with minimal clutter.

5. Don’t go it alone

Finally, one of the most important things behind creating the perfect business plan is to not do it all by yourself!

By hiring an extra pair of hands to help, you will have support throughout the entire planning process.
