Why Business Plans are Important

why business planBusiness plans are just what the name implies, they are your detailed plans to start and run a successful business. You may ask why it is necessary to creat a plan at all. The answer is because going through the process of writing a detailed business plan forces you to consider every (or nearly every) facet of the business to be: start-up cost, employee costs, location, competition, marketing, when will you break even, etc. Until you sit down to answer these question in a systematic way, you probably never will. And the worst thing you can do at this stage of the game is fail to plan.

Business plans also allow you to obtain financing. This is the main reason people write business plans – because banks and other lenders absolutely require one. And you can’t blame them, really. Lenders want to be absolutely sure you have thought about every possible scenario associated with starting your business. Having a professionally written business plan demonstrates that you are serious and dedicated about your business venture. It also shows that you have done the research necessary to prepare the plan – and have therefore thought about this idea in great detail.

Many higher level employees or partners you may need will also want to see a business plan before agreeing to work with you. They want to see a plan for basically the same reason as lenders – they want to know that you have thought about the idea in great detail, are serious about doing it, and know how to proceed to make it successful.
