Have you heard that writing a business plan is a waste of time “because nothing happens the way you expect?”

It’s true that a business plan isn’t a crystal ball but doing one is not optional. It’s a must-do.

Why? Because the planning process makes you think about all aspects of your business, not just the product itself. A business plan shines a light on the pitfalls and the opportunities ahead, helps you prepare for the unexpected, and crystallizes your thinking about what you need to do in order to grow.
