DEVELOPING BUSINESS PLANS

Have you thoroughly thought through every facet of your business?
The real value of creating a business plan is not in having the finished product in hand; rather, the value
lies in the process of researching and thinking about your business in a systematic way. The act of
planning helps you to think things through thoroughly, study and research if you are not sure of the
facts and look at your ideas critically. It takes time now, but avoids costly, perhaps disastrous, mistakes
later.
