Being an entrepreneur can be exciting and scary, all at the same time. There are literally millions of details that could go wrong. You could often lose thousands of dollars and spend months of your time for nothing.
Or it could be the greatest thing that ever happened to you. One of the most common mistakes entrepreneurs make is neglecting to work with a professional business plan writer on a proper business plan. Usually there is all kinds of ideas going around in their heads. Should I do this? What’s our policy going to be on that? When should we launch our product?
A business plan forces entrepreneurs to sit down and put all of their ideas down on paper. That’s when it goes from being an idea and turns into a proper full-fledged business. It gets them to sit down and think about their ideas; structure them in a logical order and really think about everything to see if it makes sense. Often times, the brilliant idea you had when you were awake at 2 am might not be that great after all. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. You don’t plan on failing, do you?
One option is to write the business plan yourself. After all, you know your idea best, right? That’s also another common trap or myth.
There’s a lot of value in having a professional writer who has worked with hundreds of other entrepreneurs to design and structure their business. The writer is also an independent third-party, someone who is not directly involved in the business and can see things in an unemotional light. They can also give you ideas that worked for other entrepreneurs and give you a proper roadmap for those
critical first 12 months when most entrepreneurs fail.
