Transcript of Structuring a Business Plan (P&U)

However the primary purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate a simplistic way to define the objective, the content and then the order of the layout of your Business Plan!
A goal is an ephemeral identity and you will need to adjust as your business grows in the same way an auto pilot adjust a plane's direction during flight.
The rope of your BP is the guide line that keeps the direction identified.
Your "Plan" needs to have a clear objective so that all can understand and follow.
A "Mission Statement" is important!
Your path guide!
Your
"Business Plan"
needs to be logically structured so that your target audience (you or your partners or partners to be) can understand it!
