So you’re thinking about developing your business plan for your new or existing business? Chances are you’ve already been researching online on how to write a business plan. You’ve probably become so overwhelmed with the number of resources and help available, right? You’re probably more confused now than when you started. When it comes to writing a business plan, most business owners understand that it is a necessity for succeeding in business, but many still avoid the process. There are three primary thought processes behind why business owners avoid the business planning process.
- Ignorance – they don’t believe that it is important for their business. They “know it all” and don’t need a plan to take action.
- Just Do it – They want to get to revenue as quickly as possible. Writing a business plan takes away from that objective and therefore they feel they will get around to it when they get a chance.
- Don’t Look; Don’t See – They fear that by developing a business plan all they’ll uncover is everything they’ve done wrong.
