|Since most of us never went to business school, a lot of what we do would be considered bootstrapping by other more “professional” folks.
Very few of us created business plans when we started…we just started…
Business plans are typically used when you are going to get funding.
You create a business plan to tell a bank or investor your ideas for how you will make this a successful business and therefore justify why you need their money.
Since most of us didn’t start this way…
We don’t have a business plan.
But this is a mistake…you should have one.
Not for the reason to go in front of your bank to get funding….but to give you a roadmap that’ll make your business a LOT stronger.
This business plan should be updated annually and I lead my mastermind members through a live workshop each year to crystallize their business plan.
Here are some things that should be included in your business plan
Vision: Where you want to be in 1,3 and 5 yearsPurpose: Why your business existsCore Values: How does your team behaveGoals: The short term measurable things that must be accomplished Marketing Strategy: Your plan to acquire the customers your needProduct Service: what do you sell and at what price?
This should be put into a document that you can see and review very regularly
In addition to creating or refining this business plan…we also spend a lot of time on what the gym owner needs to do personally to be able to achieve the success in their business.
This includes specific habits that need to be adopted, personal goals set including health, money and relationships.
