Obtain Feedback On Your Plan : When writing a business plan you sometimes end up locking yourself away. You might have unique ideas which lead you to seek some isolation and secrecy, or if you are going to be a sole trader you may only have one person to consult namely yourself. But it is fantastic to try and get broader input on your business plan - whether from a professional, or simply from friends and family whom you trust.
A valuable source of information about your business that may be required by third parties ; Improved use of your company personal resulting from participation in the business planning process ; Increased employee motivation ; Increased profits and sustained growth.
Don't Make Assumptions About Customers ; To be an entrepreneur does require plenty of self-confidence, sometimes almost a bloody-minded determination to make your business work. But this confidence spilling over into thinking that you know what 'the market' wants can be dangerous, without checking that it's true. You need to do your research that the market does ultimately want what you will be offering, whatever products or services you will be selling.
A business that makes sense and is going to be sustainable in the future is one that has that clear vision within which all the smaller parts contribute to make it successful.
