“Roar”, says the lion who protects his clients…
A business plan is not something you should or should want to write alone. There is an inherent value in seeking help from experienced professionals. Ever heard of the expression, “You get what you pay for?” When you spend $600 on a business plan that is about what you can expect to get back. When you look to professionals who not only have the talent, resources, and education to catapult your start up into the next millionaire millennia, you have a shot at breaking into entrepreneurial stardom.
Lest not forget that the grandeur of the business plan and matching pro-forma does not only pose possible success for the start-up but for the been-in-business, made-my-money, fully operational enterprise as well. It can be fashioned that even experienced entrepreneurs’ needs to reinvent their own success strategy once in a while.
Asking questions such as “would you agree?” to a specific aspect of the deal, or acknowledging their interests with feel good prose such as; “I wholeheartedly understand your position. It makes sense that you would feel that way because…” lets the other party know that you are engaging in a best practice to formulate an alternate agreement that what each wish to stand on ceremony for at the outset.
There is an innovative spirit in wanting to attract #investors, relish in detail, and see the fruits of one’s labor come to fruition in a perfect storm of product, price, people, and Pina coladas on the beach after a hard day’s work. Does your consultant have the same drive and passion you do for your product or service? If not, shut down the open bar of coladas now. Let us not forget there are many high performing #venutres’ that have yet to utilize a plan as such; but these are few and far between. In a digital space as we have today, without a plan of action, one could get lost in the volume of data alone. What do you track? How? What additional #revenue streams can your firm bring in to support your transition to indulge in traditional and contemporary #marketing costs that wet the palette of the #consumer? There is simply no end to the “too much data” phenomenon. And while, the data is so critical in terms of measurability, knowing where and how to utilize the data in the course of business as it expanse and contracts is a whole other animal in it and of itself.
So, “Roar” said the lion as it protected its’ cubs. “Roar,” says the professional as it protects its’ clients. The reality is that the business plan is not just the roadmap to get out of the forest, it is the guide to help you survive along the way. Realizing that the end results only occur when the effort has been put in is just a small part of the reward. The real value in the business #plan is acquiring a team-mate to help you through the difficult malarkey of questions and processes that come to be. When all is said and done, not only have you made a BFF – Best Financial Friend, but the lion/ness has protected the animal kingdom so well, there will be a feeding frenzy to get a bite of it. #investorattraction #reapreward #businessplanbenefits #advicefromtheprofessional #synergystrategists
