Business Planning

How do the pieces of the business puzzle fit together?How do the pieces fit together?  It all starts with planning.  Thinking.  Re-thinking.  Questioning.   Probing.  Everybody tells you that you need a comprehensive business plan but if you've never written one it can be a daunting task.  One you'll tend to put off...and off...and off.  Don't do it!!  It is axiomatic in the investment community that, "Failing to plan is planning to fail" and, while no business plan can guarantee business success, lack of a business plan almost certainly increases the probability of business failure.

Unless you are rich enough to fund your dreams without assistance you are probably going to need to raise money and if you are going to raise money - whether its from banks, venture capitalists or angel investors - you are going to need a business plan.
