  • What are the benefits of having a Business Plan?

    The 7 Top Benefits of a Up-to-Date Business Plan are:

    • Having a clear direction for your business (vision and mission)

    • Setting benchmarks to track your performance

    • Conducting a current industry analysis

    • Reviewing your major competitors and developing strategies to come out on top

    • Explore how to capitalise on your company’s strengths and mitigate weaknesses

    • Develop a roadmap and schedule for achieving your goals and core business outcomes

    • Create clear financial projections for the next five years so you can see exactly how you’ll reach success.

  • Do I need a business plan?

    Yes, I would strongly encourage ALL businesses to have a comprehensive business plan. This is crucial to take their business from where it is now to where they want it to be.

    When I am faced with this question from prospects or clients, I commonly ask them if they would build a house without a plan? Obviously not, and it is no different for a business.

  • How long will it take me to write my business plan?

    This depends on what stage you're at in your business (are you a start up or established business?), how much information you have readily available (financials, goals, team details, market research, etc) and how committed you are to completing your plan.

    If you set yourself a goal to complete your business plan by a certain date, and allocate time in your diary to go through my modules - with additional time at the end to review - you'll increase your chances of finishing your business plan.

    My online business plan builder has been broken into 15 modules, which can be completed in approximately 10-15 hours. It's up to you whether you block out 5 x 2-3 hour blocks over a few days or weeks, or if you block out 2 full business days and get it all done at once.

  • How often should I review my Business Plan?

    Learning from what has happened in the past, testing and measuring and looking into the future to identify your gaps and opportunities, I’d recommend spending at least one full day each quarter to reassess your overall business model and make sure you’re clear on your formula for success.

  • Do you have any testimonials?

    We sure do. I've helped hundreds of business owners through the business planning process and I've never had anyone say they weren't blown away with the process.

    In fact, the most common feedback I receive is "I wish I had done this sooner."
