One of the topics I discuss with my clients and prospective clients is the importance of a direct selling business plan.
When I bring this subject up, I hear some very interesting reasons why they don’t bother to write one.
What Are Your Company’s Reasons?
This video will explain why some businesses don’t have a business plan in place, and the importance it has on you and your company’s future.
What Business Plans Do
Business plans help you and others to see your vision more clearly. They paint a picture of what your company may look like in years to come. A business plan is also a vehicle to help you to obtain investment capital, whether it’s from friends, family, or outside investors.
Business plans can help you to think about how your business will grow. When you have a project plan in your business plan, you’ll see the next steps.
For many companies, the genesis of standards to operate the business originates in the business plan.
“Focus.” I like this word to describe what a business plan can do for the entrepreneur. Business plans help people to hone in on the details. At the same time, like a road map, they paint a picture of the entire trip.
When writing a business plan, important questions are answered and decisions are made. However, because business plans aren’t written in stone, they can be changed as needed.
Whether you have it all figured out or you don’t, writing a business plan is a good idea. I say YES to business plans.
You may have identified the right products to sell through direct selling. Perhaps you’ve written a partial or complete business plan for your direct selling company or division. Regardless of where you are at this time in your business development, Sylvina Consulting can help you.
