No More Boring Business Plans!

Are you a creative entrepreneur who struggles with planning because it feels like more work to make the plan than to just get the job done?I feel your pain, I resisted planning for years. And then one day I had a conversation with my financial planner and I was sharing my dreams with her.

“You need a business plan”, she said.

“No I don’t”, I said.

I had so much resistance to planning, to looking at my numbers, I thought it had to be hard and take months to complete. I needed to focus on sales and making money, right? I didn’t have time to plan.

At one point I realized that she was right AND I was right. I didn’t have months or need months to create a plan, but I did need a roadmap.

I had big goals and big dreams but without a plan I had no way of gauging my progress or knowing if I was taking the right actions to move me forward. I felt like I was spinning my wheels and needed to try something new.

Many creative entrepreneurs make the same massive mistake I did of not having an effective plan in place to grow their profitable business. Not having a plan can create overwhelm, burnout and an empty bank account.

In the image above you can see one example of a one page business plan (or business mandala as we fondly call them around the office.) This plan is visually beautiful but also very practical as it includes all the key elements of a simple business plan.Here’s a sample that you can use to create your own business mandala.
