Sunday newsagency challenge: the one page business plan

Imagine you need to borrow $10,000 to help you develop your business and to apply you need to include business plan including a page executive summary making the case for the loan, explaining what you would use it for and what it would achieve for your business.

Write that one page. Write it as if the application is real.

Then, switch hats and be the banker. Would you loan the funds?

This exercise seeks to get us looking at our businesses differently. The more we do this the more we will change and change is goal #1 right now.

    I’m not surprised Andrew. I see plenty of people with plans and they focus on them for their own businesses.
