There are an abundance of businesses to choose from. Competition is fierce and money is tight. Creating and executing a business plan is not optional. It is critical to your success and cannot be overemphasized.
Interestingly, many small and mid-sized businesses get started or start a new year without a detailed, well-developed business plan or without any plan at all. Some experience growth despite this lack of direction. However, most find that they can meet customer needs, manage their business, and increase sales and profitability when they have a road map to guide them.
