After all, some entrepreneurs succeed without writing a business plan.
With great timing, solid business skills, entrepreneurial drive, and a little luck, some founders build thriving businesses without creating even an informal business plan.
Maybe you think you don't need a step by step guide to writing a great business plan.
Maybe you think you don't need a template for writing a business plan.
So a solid business plan should be a blueprint for a successful business.
It should flesh out strategic plans, develop marketing and sales plans, create the foundation for smooth operations, and maybe--just maybe--convince a lender or investor to jump on board.
Many people see writing a business plan as a "necessary evil" required to attract financing or investors.
Instead, see your plan as a no-cost way to explore the viability of your potential business and avoid costly mistakes. If your Summary cannot clearly describe, in one or two pages, how your business will solve a particular problem and make a profit, then it's very possible the opportunity does not exist--or your plan to take advantage of a genuine opportunity is not well developed.
Let your excitement for your idea and your business shine through.
