Had enough of the corporate rat race?

Dreaming of working for yourself? That's a start. If you've got a goal in mind for your next steps, you're going to need a plan to guide you. A dream is just a dream, but a goal is a dream with a plan and a deadline. If you've had an idea for a business, and have researched it to the point where you've decided to move forward — or, if you've got a company teed up and ready to acquire — the next step is to produce a business plan.

This plan is the single most important document you can prepare to get off to a successful start. A good plan can perform two critical functions for you. First, in the short run, it can help you raise outside funding to execute your idea or acquire your target. Nothing happens without money, whether it's coming out of your pocket or someone else's. Second, in the longer run, after investing your own money and perhaps also leaving the closing table with a loan or equity investment, a good plan lays out a clear path showing you what to do to make your business successful while providing a periodic scorecard to measure how you're doing.

   
 

Can I do a business plan myself?

Yes, if you have the time, inclination, patience, and financial-analysis savvy — and you like to write. Chances are you have most of those attributes, but probably not all of them. But you need them all in order to come up with a plan that adds up to something that makes sense, because putting your money on the line and becoming an entrepreneur is one of the biggest decisions you'll ever make. The process also doesn't end when you're finished writing; the smartest step to take next is a backward one, to ask critically if the plan as a whole sounds doable, feasible and reasonable.

The plan has to be credible to you, as well as to your lenders and/or investors (unless you're able to fund your idea completely from your own resources). So you could do this yourself —or you could bring in some experienced, objective eyes and brains to guide you through the process, fleshing out your ideas, strategy, tactics and financial projections in writing, while always looking a few steps forward to make sure the plan is headed toward a result that measures up.
