Do You Need a Business Plan for Your Business?

Do you really need a business plan for your business? Let’s see what the Small Business Administration has to say (link):

The importance of a comprehensive, thoughtful business plan cannot be overemphasized. Many factors critical to business success depend upon your plan: outside funding, credit from suppliers, management of your operation and finances, promotion and marketing of your business, and achievement of your goals and objectives.

Some people assume that if they are not going to seek financial support from lenders or investors to open their business that they don’t need to prepare a business plan, but every business should have one. Writing a business plan serves as a roadmap for your venture when you’re starting out…

Writing your business plan also forces you to think about your business objectively. When you’re done, you will have a more realistic idea of the effort it will require and whether it’s a venture you want to pursue at this time. (Emphasis and italics theirs)

About Sean D. Daily

Sean Daily was a mild-mannered social marketer in Las Vegas until a freak laboratory accident at the Spearmint Rhino gave him writing powers and abilities beyond those of mortal men. Since it's hard to fight crime with writing powers and abilities beyond those of mortal men, though, he decided to become a speculative fiction writer instead. He's currently working on the urban fantasy novel "Crossing the Line" and the science fiction comic book "Sidestep".
