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?Download the Business Plan from the Prince’s Trust 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!
I'm Emmie Faust and I am the host of a podcast called The Business Greenhouse With Emmie Faust. It is a podcast for entrepreneurs, founders, CEOs for small to medium size businesses and I share strategies, tactics and tips to help you grow a thriving business.My first tip is around measurement (episode 11). So many potential clients that I go meet, they're not actually measuring their marketing or measuring what's going on in their business and they don't actually know some of the key vital information. So it's really tricky to know what to focus on when you don't actually know what's working and what's not working.I set up a reporting document for all my clients so that they can measure what they're doing every month and report back on that and then that can be discussed at a monthly review meeting with the rest of the team and the key stakeholders in the business.The second tip is to make sure that you know your finance and your numbers (episode 22). Make sure you've got a proper accountant, make sure your bookkeeper is really on top of things and make sure that as a business owner you actually understand your financial documentation and your management accounts and things like that. My third tip, which is a really, really important one is to make sure you know your customer journey (episode 15). Make sure that you've mapped out the journey that your customers go on. The whole process from start to finish and make sure that every stage of that journey you are injecting your brand, that you're delivering a fantastic customer experience. And really think about the customer. The customer is key.Do have a listen.
