You may say, “Why do I need a business plan? I can get all the funding I need from friends and relatives.” Sounds like you only think of a business plan as a way to get a business loan. In fact, a business plan is much more than that: It's a tool for understanding how your business is put together and functions. You can use it to monitor progress, hold yourself accountable and control the business's fate. And of course, it's a sales, marketing, and recruiting tool for courting new clients, key employees or future investors. So, viewing your business plan as a fund-raising tool is just the beginning of the journey. In this thought-provoking session, Vince DiCecco of Your Personal Business Trainer will share how you can use the plan for so much more—for managing yourself and provide guidance when making critical decisions, for operating the business and for recruiting. Also covered in this seminar will be which specific sections of the plan should be exercised on a regular basis and updated periodically.
