Business Planning direction, feasibility, solutions, growth, getting started, getting out

Business planning with our clients is one of our strengths. This can be a formal process that results in a comprehensive written plan or it can be bouncing ideas around that result is an aha! moment. Some of the other planning results could be: a to do list, an action plan, a strategy, or maybe a cash flow projection. We have some great resources to help with the process.

Check out "The Plan". This is a workbook with examples for a comprehensive business plan.  Clients sometimes get stuck on so many important topics to explore.  One method that often works is to start with the business description. Answer questions that you know the answer to, cross out the questions that don't apply, and circle the ones that you need to find the answers to.  The circled topics then become the to-do list.

The SCORE website provides a financial projections template we have helped clients utilize, as part of their business plan.
