Many of us have thought it would be bliss to start your own business; no longer have a boss to answer to, working our own hours, no commuting, no office politics, earn more money etc.
However, along with the positives of working for yourself there are another set issues that arise and have to be addressed:
Can you give up the safety net of your regular salary and benefits?
Are you self-motivated enough to work on your own?
Are your family and friends supportive of your idea?
Is there a market for your service / product?
Can you fund or raise funds for your business until it is profitable?
Do you have any knowledge shortfalls required to make your business a success?
If you can answer these all positively immediately, that is fabulous. However, most of us will find that perhaps they do need to do a little more planning before launching their new business and giving up the day job.
To address these questions and to ensure your business is a success, it is essential to build a business plan, after all if you “fail to plan, you plan to fail”. The business plan doesn’t have to be as big as a telephone book or overly complicated, but it should include the following things:
Overview of what your business is offering, its products and services
Analysis of the market and competitors
Marketing and sales requirements
Financial forecast, including profit and loss, capital requirements, and cash flow forecast
