If you want your business to succeed, the place to start is with your Business Plan.
A business plan is like a road map. It gives you direction and helps you work out where you want to go and how you can get there. It’s like a To Do list, practically listing the tasks required to establish and operate your business. It’s also the document that can unlock financing, attract future partnerships and set up your business for success.
- When starting your own business, the place to start is with your business plan.
- Think about your business, the market, the business operations, the risks and your finances.
- Always remember your ‘why.’ Think about why you wanted to start your business in the first place and what is your vision and purpose is.

“John gave me very good support and is a great mentor. He wants to help my business grow even more. Even after we finished the business plan, he maintains regular contact. He is always messaging me to see if I need any other help, like with opening up a bank account or researching things like insurance. I know he is there for the long run not just short term.” – Zara, Makeup by Zara Parker, Pilbara WA
