Step 3: Design a Plan
Once you have a vision for your business that you completely resonate with, I recommend writing down your plan to achieve your vision. If you are just starting out in business, always begin with a business plan which focuses on the next twelve months. Ideally you want a five year vision, but start with a one year plan, because within your first year your business in guaranteed to morph into something that you did not exactly envision, which is good.
I am a big fan of one page business plans to help your business grow. If you’d like to learn how to do this easily, I have created a one page plan for you to complete which you can download at http://www.My1PagePlan.com.
Remember, a business plan guides you along the journey to achieving your vision. It is like a road map or itinerary for your vacation. You cannot go on vacation without knowing where you are going and how you are going to get there. It is the same for your business, you must have a vision you resonate with and a plan that you can action to ensure you fulfill your vision.
