Guide to writing a business plan

Whether starting a new business or re-planning an existing one, a business plan is always a good idea.  Getting professional help drafting you plan is another good idea because planning a business’s future should be done in the best manner possible.

Benefits of a business plan

Your business plan outlines:

  • your vision for the business
     
  • the actions that will help you achieve it.

When you are starting out, your business plan can help you secure financing and investment. But your business plan does more than tell others what your plans are. A good business plan can help you test the feasibility of your new business idea, set operational and financial objectives, and make sure your business is manageable and effective.

You will need to revisit your business plan regularly as your business evolves and the business environment changes. These changes could include increased competition, advances in technology or the expectations of your customers.
