These days, almost everyone wants to be an entrepreneur. Women, immigrants, corporate refugees, minorities and even young adults are realizing the American dream of starting, owning and operating a small business. People everywhere recognize the entrepreneurial spirit as an equalizing force that offers social mobility, economic opportunity and personal freedom.
There is no better way to achieve the dream of business ownership than by researching and writing a business plan. During this process, an entrepreneur can examine all the pros and cons of a business opportunity, analyze the consequences of different strategies and tactics, and determine the human and financial requirements for turning an inspired idea into a viable business venture. Studies show that entrepreneurs who complete business plans are six times more likely than others to build a successful small business.
Writing a business plan also teaches strategic thinking skills, which have important implications for virtually every aspect of our lives, including personal and family relationships, career planning, financial decisions and community involvement.
