Do you have a business idea or a dream that you have always wanted to try? Does fear or even just getting started hold you back? Writing a business plan can be exciting…but it can be hard to write the first word and even harder to keep going to success. But, we will learn the tricks to turn ideas into plans and look at the key turning points for success. We will even look at an idea that might need to go in a different direction for success. We will always focus on a ‘living, breathing’ plan that is a blueprint for making it all happen. We will consider if an idea has real market value, how to ensure your personal goals are part of the plan, and what needs to be a part of your plan. You will leave with a concrete idea and the first section of your plan done.
