FWB – The Almighty Business Plan

(This post is from another Jessie blog, Fourth Wave Business, and is republished here for your enjoyment!)

If you’re ready for a snooze feel free to read this less-than-sparkling ’10 Steps to Start Your Own Business’.  Way to kill my entrepreneurial spirit with some boring and totally un-fun tasks. . .  Dammit. . .  I have to admit the eventual truth that actually starting your business isn’t likely to be a sunshiney picnic.  It’s a lot of work – and a lot of technical stuff.

I’m a creative person – my brain shuts down when I see too many words or numbers.  Throw some shiny colors my way and you’ve got my full attention!  I like to be hands-on in my learning which has caused a lot of grief since most information is written – blogs, books, articles and interviews.  So what’s a creative individual to do when it comes to step one – writing a business plan?

Well, you get CREATIVE!  Find other sources, seek out someone with a similar style and find out what THEY did.  I stumbled upon this really awesome and super handy (seriously SUPER)workbook.  It’s really simple – not at all intimidating.  It breaks a business plan down step-by-step and makes the workload seem totally doable.  I am no longer overwhelmed!  Phew!

I’ve been using this business plan workbook for the past businesses that I’ve started and it’s really helpful.  When I get off course I can simply refer back to my ‘Pre-stress sparkle thoughts’ and regain focus to remember WHY I’m doing it.  Do yourself a favor and read or print this bad boy.  It’s a great tool to utilize that will help you conquer the Almighty Business Plan!  And dudes, it’s FREE.  Win!

I hope this helps!  Have a bitchin day!
