Tim Berry is the author of two books – 3 Weeks to Startup and The Plan-As-You-Go Business Plan – and has reviewed hundreds of business plans. He sums up seven pitfalls that can torpedo even the sexiest business plan in this enlightening Entrepreneur article.

We can sum his advice up in three sentences:

  1. Make sure your plan is realistic.
  2. Make sure your plan is detailed.
  3. Make sure your plan leaves out nothing.

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".
