Not one of those 20+ page documents you put together when you first started your business or went to the bank to ask for funding - but something that is a working document about how you run your business.
When I asked that question to a room of 200 business owners recently, only a handful of hands went up.
OK, some of them may not have wanted to put their hands up but generally it's only a small percentage of the people I talk to on a regular basis that actually DO have a business plan.
Your business plan doesn't have to be any more complicated than one page.
- Where you are now.
- Where you want to be.
- How you're going to get there.
Without a business plan - your business is like a rudderless ship - you may be going somewhere but not necessarily in the direction you want to go.
Spend a few minutes today thinking about your business plan. Get your key goals written down, review it regularly and see the difference it makes. Drop me an email if you'd like a copy of the one page business plan.
