Your Business is a Journey

During your journey you will have a lot of hops to pass. Some you have to solve so you could move ahead, some you can jump over and come back later to solve it.

We also believe that any business which will be not online (at least parts of it) will die.

How to create your Business Plan

A picture can tell more than thousand words … this is a logical approach of how you should build a business plan. You can notice the two circles (of course, not in the geometric representation of a circle), just follow the red dotted lines. These arrows indicates you that building a business plan is not a “one-shot” job, except if you are a genius in which case there is no reason for you to follow this topic …

The big circle: Numbers are a logical consequence of the story. If the numbers are not satisfactory, go back to the story and do changes.

The small circles: The focal point is what you want to do (portfolio). If the business model cannot accommodate the portfolio, go back and adjust it and be aware that any change of the portfolio will trigger changes in the market analysis.
