I presented last night to a bunch of business owners out in South West Sydney. I guess we had 30 businesses represented in the room, everything from an Accountant to a Paintball (Skirmish) business. I asked the question “so who has a crystal clear business plan?” and the answer was somewhat predictable – only 1 business could put their hands on one.
I’m not surprised by this stat at all, it is a real shame however it is a reality. I also asked the question around the clarity of their Vision and got a similar response.
Come on Small Business, I am crying out for you to get serious, lets get plans in place, lets get a dose of big business (scary as that sounds). You can google a simple business plan template, its not too hard!!
