While it is always exciting to try to realize your dream in your mind and to project that image into your future, the realization that barriers, stumbling blocks, and necessary "to-do's" exist. These subjects range from broad to very specific, and can include questions such as; Who is my ideal client?; What would be a good name for my organization?; What is my unique selling proposition (USP)?; How will I balance my work life with my personal life?; How big do I want this business to be; Do I have the necessary resources? If not, where can I get them? If so, how do I most effectively utilize them?
Market Analysis : Undertake some market research to get a better idea of the opportunities that currently exist in your market. Do a competitive analysis to get a better understanding of your competitors. Once you understand more about them, set out a plan for competing against them by offering something different in the way of menus and services.
So, in the end, I encourage you to realign whatever preconceived notions you may have of the business planning process and view it not as a daunting task or a necessary evil of running a successful business. Instead, view it as yet another opportunity, the chance to help make your dreams into a reality by mapping out the needs of your business, your customers, your employees, your suppliers, your community...and yourself!
