Writing a Business Plan – Template of a Short Business Plan!

Writing a business is a must for all types of businesses. If you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail!

While I was doing my MBA, the lecturer emphasized on writing a business plan. I did not have any particular business in mind, so it was a struggle to come up with particulars.

I have a web design business now, and the importance of a business plan is never more clear than now!

A business plan need not be elaborate. Just a few lines summarizing what you want to do and how you will go about that are super important.

A business plan gives you a target to fulfill. In times when you feel directionless, a look at the business plan sets you back on the right path.

Here is a brief business plan template for small businesses. It has components from my own business but can be customized to fit your unique requirements –

The business can be more elaborate and include details if you have data or want to provide more details. Whatever you do, make sure that you have the basic points in the plan and refer to it in times of need.

And a business plan need not stay static. It can change over time with changing needs of the customer. The best approach it to include only the most vital and core elements in the plan and then update as needed.
