5 Tips for Effective Business Planning

1 – Clearly define your business idea and be able to succinctly articulate it. Know your mission.
2 – Examine your motives. Make sure that you have a passion for owning a business and for this particular business.
3 – Be willing to commit to the hours, discipline, continuous learning and the frustrations of owning your own business.
4 – Conduct a competitive analysis in your market, including products, prices, promotions, advertising, distribution, quality, service, and be aware of the outside influences that affect your business.
5 – Seek help from other small businesses, vendors, professionals, government agencies, employees, trade associations and trade shows. Be alert, ask questions, and visit your local SCORE office.
