Do you want to start a business? Get approval for a big project? Most people think of a business plan as a dry, complicated document that’s only good for attracting investors or getting a bank loan. Not true! Whether you want to start a new company or launch a big project, writing a business plan can mean the difference between high fives or failing miserably.
The secret no one talks about is that the gold is not in the plan itself, but in the process of creating it.
In this session you’ll learn about the elements of a traditional business plan, which parts are actually important to a business owner, and how to write your own business plan.
As a self-employed entrepreneur with over 20 years of business experience, I’ve learned my way around a cashflow statement.

So if you’re serious about starting a business, taking your business to the next level, or getting that big project approved by the boss, this session is for you.
