The Business Greenhouse by Emmie Faust – business planning in 5 mins

In this episode, I want to talk to you about business planning, which, believe it or not, can be great fun!

If you’re looking to get funding for your business from a bank or from external investors, a business plan is a must. 

But even if you’re working as a solopreneur (like a coach or a consultant, for example), and you’re planning to use your own time and energy to set up and grow your business, it’s worth going through the process of understanding what might happen, how, and what things might get in your way, so you can create a clear plan of action!

You can listen using the link below or via your favourite podcasting platforms here The Business Greenhouse with Emmie Faust.

Tune in, and you will learn…

How to create your business plan.

  • Creating a business plan, especially if you haven’t done it before, can feel like a scary and overwhelming task. But it doesn’t need to be! My advice? Get some help! If you can, hire an expert. If not, why not get together with a business-minded friend and work on your business plan together? Perhaps you could look into hiring a mentor or finding a course?

 and fill it in. It’s a big document (and the task can feel overwhelming), so consider breaking it down into small chunks and completing one section a week. It might take you the best part of two months, but the exercise (and the outcome) will be worth your time!
