FREE EBOOK OF THE MONTH...Entrepreneur Business Planning Guide Helps Crystallize Your Vision

Writing your business plan and need some help? Perhaps you’ve been asking yourself this question: What should a business plan include? If so, you’re one of many. How do we know? Because you’ve told us, time and again.

In fact, when we asked our fans on Facebook what topics they most wanted to learn more about and to provide us with some feedback on the things they need help with the most, many of them said the same thing. It would be great to learn more about what to include in a business plan!

Where to begin…

When it comes to business planning help, the pile of information providing “to-dos” and “how-tos” is wide and deep, so much so that it can be overwhelming, which is a shame given that much of it may be unnecessary. That’s especially true if you’re goal is to buy and/or start a small home-based or other kind of business, one where you have little to no need to secure venture capital. In instances such as these, a long, drawn-out plan full of tables, graphs and elaborate strategic and other detail probably is not necessary. Rather, the KISS method likely will more than suffice—Keep It Simple Stupid is oftentimes the way to go.

Business PlanBut don’t be fooled. Simple does not mean easy. Quite the contrary in fact. Writing your business plan is probably one of, if not the most, challenging and important tasks you MUST undertake if you want to be successful…period.

A great place to start? One that won’t cost you a dime and gives you the business plan basics in an easy-to-read format?

Allow us to suggest Raj Khera’s FREE eBook titled “How to Write the Business Plan of Your Dreams: A Step-by-Step Guide to Crystallizing Your Vision.”

It’s just one in a series of eBooks by this author designed for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs in an effort to help them in planning and marketing their products and services using “simple, affordable techniques.” And that’s just what this book is all about. What it is not, Khera writes, is “an in-depth analysis of every strategy in the world that can help you write your business plan.” Rather, “(it) offers you, the (budding) small business owner, quick and concentrated information to reach your primary goal: crystallizing your vision into a business plan that is in line with your dreams. It’s easy reading designed to spark a light bulb in your head that will get you on your way fast,” he promises.

And he delivers…

Business Plan Free eBookIn just thirty pages, Khera covers the nuts and bolts for writing your business plan pretty well—everything from setting goals and nailing down your elevator pitch to defining your customer base and sizing up the competition. He then goes on to offer a comprehensive yet easily digested overview of how to structure your business plan, one that is not overwhelming, is simple to follow and emphasizes the fact that the executive summary of a business plan should always be the last step.

And while “How to Write the Business Plan of Your Dreams” offers a solid overview of the entire small business planning process and what it entails, its goal is to go one step further…to inspire. How exactly? By asking prospective small business owners to be mindful and explore the “Why?” of what they are doing as much as anything else and then to articulate that “why” in substantive and measurable ways.

The result? Readers are left with a very important take-away, one that they may not find in other self-help business-planning resource offerings. In setting the stage to write a meaningful, workable and ultimately successful business plan, your vision matters greatly. In fact, it is the very core of everything that will enable you to achieve your dreams, whatever they may be. As Khera says, “Your life’s vision must come first.”

Click here on the title to download a copy of Khera's FREE eBook, "How to Write the Business Plan of Your Dreams," now!

And once you do...we'd like to hear from you! Did you find this resource to be helpful? Inspiring? What other business planning resources have you found that have worked for you?
