    I so agree! If you are in the business to make money then have a plan to make money. At least have an idea. Get in there and start your business. Stripping the business plan down to just the base essentials is mandatory. but once you get that down, then get in there and startup your startup!

    I also agree….just like a road map is essential when planning a trip, a business road map is needed when starting on a journey as a business owner. Financial planning is the key to being successful!

    Thanks for the great blog!
