Many people are afraid of the idea of preparing a business plan because they think it is a complicated set of unnecessary documents which exist only to make their life more difficult. Business plans are necessary because they help an entrepreneur to see his business. Instead of talking in abstract terms about the customer base and the profit potential, a business plan helps to see the business deals in concrete terms. A business plan also forces an entrepreneur to think through every aspect of his business in advance. These plans also make other people interested in someone’s business. A business plan shows people that the creator of it is professional and he understands what it takes to start and manage a business. If external funding, loan or investment is needed business plan is all the more necessary.

Many readers do not go beyond the executive summary, so this should contain the gist of all sections and such readers should get an overall idea about the particular business just by going through this section. Therefore, an entrepreneur must make sure that this section is comprehensive and well-written. An entrepreneur must read the entire business plan before writing the executive summary. The information which will stand out to a reader must be included in the summary.

I have to say that inspired by Robert Kiyosaki and due to my Gemini/ dual nature I followed both paths – traditional and non traditional learning and I have to say that as an entrepreneur things are really different from what I was tought that they could be. NY Times published recently an article regarding this. You can dind it here. This is the most important paragraph from the whole article: “Talent can come in so many different forms and be built in so many nontraditional ways today, hiring officers have to be alive to every one — besides brand-name … Continue reading How to Get a Job At Google
