Writing a Business Plan. Was it a good idea?
Since my first business back in 2005, I have had a business plan and it was created as part of a 6-week starting a business course I attended in Bath, Somerset.
It was definitely a good idea and helped me to set clear goals for years 1 through to 5.
What did you learn?
I learnt that a business plan is a living breathing document. It’s not something you write once and leave, it is something you go back to, to review, reflect & revise.
Also, if, like me, your business direction changes, you extract what is no longer relevant and build the new business model into it.
If you don't like the position, size or placement of the photos, grab, move, rotate or resize them until you do!
Did you start without one?
No, it was one of the first tools I was advised to have but I was also told not to get overly attached to it as it would change.
Where did you start?
My first business was online serving clients globally.
Since then, as my business has changed direction, it is now online for global reach and offline, based in Somerset, and working across the UK.
