Building a Right-Sized Business Plan

If you ask 10 different business owners how they prepared their business plan (or even IF they prepared one), you’ll get 10 different answers. Some business owners choose to write a long and detailed analysis of the business they plan to run, while others scribble a few notes on the back of a napkin and take their chances. For other business owners, the plan is all in their head.
So, what should you do? Do you really need a business plan? How long should it be? What should be in it? What do lenders and investors want to see in it? How can a business plan be accurate when you can’t predict the future? How often should you revisit your plan? How do you prepare a business plan when you don’t even know where to start?
Join us for Building a Right-Sized Business Plan, where we’ll discuss these questions and more.
