Devising A Business Plan

Nov 6, 2007
Theres a lot of talk these days about the entrepreneurial spirit and those that claim to have it are opening their own businesses and reaching for the brass ring. While having that spirit can be a plus in running your own show, many forget that it takes a team to run a business and the one secret that all successful entrepreneurs use is to surround themselves with good people.

Now how good a person is at coming up with ideas and they may have the drive to take those ideas to a higher level, they are going to need help to turn those ideas into reality through execution. Devising a business plan is a major part of developing a new business, as well as getting funding for its start up but the trouble with many new ventures is that it is planned to death. Agonizing over every little detail of how the business is going to be operated, where the money will come from and how it will be spent is more than one person can handle. Successful people are willing to share that responsibility.

Those opening a new business with the thoughts that they can work their own hours, open a business and sit back and collect a huge income are really fooling themselves. While working your own hours may be possible if you plan on spending more than two thirds of your time in the business. It is going to take a lot of time, especially in the early stages but you can decide which of the 18 hours during the day you will spend working.

You also have to have the personal commitment and the self discipline to own your own business. Whether it is working at home or having an office in the home and work on clients job sites, you have to be disciplined enough to get the job done and plan for the next one. There are going to be things that go wrong and you have to understand that as the business owner, you are the one that will make the decisions on how to make things right.

There are many myths surrounding operations with a new business, such as the boss is always right and telling people they will do it your way because you are the owner. While the business may be in your name and you are taking all the risks in making it successful, the bottom line head of your business is going to be your clients or customers. Without people will to pay for your services or products, you have no business. And while you may be right in your decisions, you can pat yourself on the back for making the right choices all the way to the unemployment office.
