So, you’ve reached a point in the business creation process where you have clarity around your business idea, you’re clear on your ideal clients, spent the time doing market research, got clear on your business message, and created your first serviced-based programme, and now you’re considering skipping the business plan step because you’re thinking ‘a business plan isn’t that important.’ I realise not everyone adores planning and to-do lists as much as I do, but before you freak out and close the browser, stay with me for a second and hear me out.


When most people think of business plans the first thing that springs to mind are those epic long documents full of strategy, profit forecasts, and extremely detailed marketing strategies, this is not the type of thing that I am asking about. The purpose of a business plan is to paint a clear picture of how you plan to bring your business idea to life. A business plan can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be.


This is exactly what I want to guide you through in today’s episode of Be Motivated TV; the 5 essential steps to creating a clear and simple business plan.

Actionable Steps:
  • Over the next seven days set yourself a challenge to write up your business plan.
  • Review it regularly, to keep yourself on track and aligned with your vision. Don’t just file it away and let it collect dust.


Once you’ve had a chance to watch, I’d love to hear from you. Do you have a business plan? Or, If you have any further questions as you create your business plan, feel free to ask in the comments section below. I want to hear your story. Let me know by leaving a comment below.


This is an important step in creating and growing your dream business.

You owe it to yourself to stop dreaming and start creating a profitable online business.

Remember, how you spend your time in this world matters. So don’t waste your time in a job that you do not love, start working on your dream today.

If you want to make 2016 the year you step out of your comfort zone and finally create your dream service based business, and you want the support of a coach who’s been there, done that, then I would love to invite you to join me for a complimentary discovery session, where together you and I can explore how you can create the business and life of your dreams and decide whether working together is a right fit for you.
