I’m quoted a lot in “Writing a Business Plan: 5 Things You Need to Know” (no longer available) by Charlotte Jensen on the AOL Small Business site this morning.
Those 5 things are:
- Chances are, you need a plan.
- Business planning should be ongoing.
- Review your plan on a regular basis.
- Don’t complicate things.
- Even a good plan doesn’t guarantee success.
In the source piece, there’s a lot more explanation. Charlotte Jensen did an excellent summary, and it’s a valuable piece. Sure, I’m biased because I’m in there, but there’s a lot of good stuff there besides mine. For example, where she quotes me on the need for constant course correction, she adds:
Think about it: Without constant course corrections and change, you end up driving in the wrong direction (and perhaps even over a cliff).
