Creating a Business Plan

When it came to writing business plans, I thought I would have no problem. You see, I had really thought out basically every aspect of business.

I knew the product I wanted to make, how to make it, how to market and advertise it, how many people I had to employ, and even how much it would cost. Nevertheless, something about putting all of these factors together was really difficult for me. I have always been an idea man, but have never found a very good person to collaborate with.

For me, the part that everyone takes for granted writing down and organizing the details is the hardest part. Add to this the fact that I have no business experience and you have a recipe for disaster. That is why I needed to consult sample business plans.

It may seem strange to you, but having to look at a business plan example was a little bit humiliating for me. I have always been a pretty independent person, and looking at someone else's business plan template seemed to compromise the independence. I wanted to be able to do it all by myself, and having to go buy sample business plans from some company that specializes in marketing to business novices felt like admitting failure long before it was time. Yet although I am stubborn, I am also practical. I knew that the sample business plans would save me a lot of money in the long run. By not allowing my inexperience to mess with my business planning, I would be able to get things right in the first place. Looking at a simple business plan or two would show me how it was done, and make sure I didn't leave out any details.

Once I got past the feeling that I could have figured it out by myself, I actually found the sample business plans to be quite helpful. The company that I bought them from used plans from actual businesses, showing me in detail everything that needed to be written down. They even offered to help me write my own, but I did not feel like I had to avail myself of the service. The sample business plans were perfectly adequate. I knew what I needed to know, and I was ready to get going. My business now has been going for about six months, and everything seems to be coming along quite nicely, thanks to my careful planning.
