Business Plan Example - Should I start with a business plan? Ask Evan
Hi, I’m Evan Carmichael. Welcome to another edition of Ask Evan. Today’s question comes from one of my forum readers Anthony who wrote in asking about business plan and he said, “Is a good business plan the first thing that you need to do to start a business.” * Join my BELIEVE newsletter: http://www.evancarmichael.com/newsletter/ As much of a fan of business plans that I am Anthony and thank you for the question, I think a lot of people go through that question as well, I don’t think it’s the first thing that you should do and the reason being, when you’re creating your business plan you should really have a good sense of your market and what you’re going to do to create your product and service and sell it. In the early stages of a business what you really need to do is start talking to customers to figure out what kind of business you should launch and the best type of business you can launch is building around your customers. So you go start talking to potential customers. Find out what their problems are, their pain points, and try to develop a solution that can help them. We made this mistake, one of my earlier companies, we spent an entire summer drafting a business plan that we thought was awesome and of course our customers are going to want this product and this is, you know, the best thing ever, and we spent so much time researching and figured we had the best thing but then when we, you know, got to actually launching it turns out that the customer we’re going after didn’t really care or give us the time of day. Now luckily we had, you know, enough still in our product to make it successful and we would find other customers but we spent all this time creating this business plan that we thought was amazing and then when we went out to actually test it in the market we found out that it didn’t hold any water. So the best thing that you can do in the beginning when you’re first starting your business or you’re thinking about starting a business is go start talking to customers and they’ll tell you what they need, what they like, how you can help them and from there you’ll get the information you need to be able to create your business plan. The danger doing it to the other way is your business plan will be, you know, useless and extinct, you know, the day you actually start going out and marketing your product. As you launch your business your business plan is going to change. You’re going to get new opportunities, customers will come to you with new problems, your marketing strategy will change, your expenses might change a little bit. So your business plan will constantly have to change a little bit but it’s best if you can to have a good concept from the beginning built around what you know will sell and what customers want. So my number one thing if you’re starting a business is just go start talking to customers. Find out their problems, build a solution around their needs and then once you’ve got a sense of what their challenges are and you’re able to get a couple of orders ideally coming in you can create your business plan on how you’re going to create this, you know, company out of this idea and be able to go out and expand to other companies, build a team, build your facilities if you need to and continue to grow the business. So hopefully that helps Anthony. For those of you watching, if you liked the video please give it a thumbs-up. I always love seeing those come in. And if you have a thought for Anthony or you have a question I’d love to hear it if you want to leave a comment underneath the video. So thank you and we’ll see you on the next episode.

How to start a tour company
http://www.evancarmichael.com/support/ - SUPPORT ME :) Like this video? Please give it a thumbs up below and/or leave a comment - Thank you!!! In this video I answer a question from one my readers who asked: Hi Evans am thinking of starting a tour company that would also source accommodation for its clients and would take clients to any destination in kenya for a reasonable fee.I have carried out a research to find out how we need to introduce ourselves in the market and also researched on things like competition and how to stand out from the rest also marketing whereby we need to network with agencies abroad and also from the east so that they can be sending us clients for a commission.I have contacted a few of them through the internet and they are positive. Our target group is local and international tourists,honeymooners,corporates having trips and team building activities. Our international airport here in nairobi also gets tourists who have no idea which tour company is taking care of them so the taxi drivers at the airport are also our target whereby when they bring clients we shall give them a commission based on the package the clients are taking. So it is a noble idea but the financial part to implement it is a problem.Am passionate about it because i have worked in the hospitality industry all my life so at least i got experience and the know how. I hope you will also like the idea. Thanks. Kind regards, Christine Githaiga.

Business Plan Presentation - Business plan tips - Ask Evan
Hi, I’m Evan Carmichael. Welcome to another edition of Ask Evan. In today’s episode I’m going to answer a question from Freddyca who’s one of my newsletter readers who wrote in asking about the business plan. So she wrote saying, “I have a business plan prepared and I’d like some tips from you to help me prepare.” * Join my BELIEVE newsletter: http://www.evancarmichael.com/newsletter/ So thanks for the question Freddyca. Exciting times, planning a new business is really good. I’m happy for you. In terms of the business plan I’d think about; are you planning the business plan for yourself or are you creating it for an investor or banker to give you money? From an investor point of view, when I was in the venture capital field what we looked at when a new business plan came in, and we rejected 99% of the business plans that came in, but what we look for first was the Executive Summary. So, you know, quickly in two pages explain why this is a good opportunity. If you can’t sell them on those two pages then they’re not going to read the rest of the business plan. So that’s got to be really solid to start. We always start there. Then we look at the team and look at who is this behind the company. So have they had experience, have they done it before, do they think they have a good chance of being successful? You know, if it’s just you you might want to consider getting some advisers on the company as well to add a little more credibility, who’ve maybe gone through it, have a little more experience than you. And then we go look at the financials and see, is this an opportunity to make money, do we think they’re going to be able to give us a return on the investment that we’re putting in. So that’s how we would start: Executive Summary, Management, then financials, and then we look at the rest of the business plan. And most of the time the entrepreneurs would fail on one of those three and they would end up, you know, getting deleted or rejected. So that’s what’s happening if you’re going to go for investors or bankers. If it’s for your own self, if it’s going to be to help you guide and plan your business I would start with, what is it that really excites you about your business, what’s the vision that you have for your company, you know, what gets your blood pumping when you wake up in the morning to pursue this business opportunity? So create that vision statement, you know, what you’re here to do and major goal for the company, so long as it’s going to get you excited every day. And then from there start working out how you’re going to make that happen. So you know, what kind of marketing do you need to do, who are the people that you need bring on, what kind of, you know, finances do you need to have in place to make it work, and how are you going to phase that out over a period of years, if you’re doing a 3 year plan or 5 year plan. Just make sure it makes common sense. You have to come back to your business plan on a regular basis to update it, to, you know, reflect the market changes that you’re seeing. The business plan never goes according to plan but it’s still a good process to go through and to keep monitoring and updating. So I hope that helps. Two different bits of advice depending on if you’re going to use it yourself or if you’re going to use it to go out and get funding, but if you have extra questions feel free to leave it below. For those watching, if you like the video please give it a thumbs-up. It makes me want to create more of these videos for you guys and if you have a question about business plan or if you have some advice for Freddyca as well, feel free to leave it in the comments underneath.

Business Ideas - How Craigslist was created without a Business Plan
http://www.evancarmichael.com/Masters/ - NEWEST VIDEO Like this video? Please give it a thumbs up below and/or leave a comment - Thank you!!! Today we're going to take a closer look at how the son of a single parent and struggling bookkeeper became a successful Internet entrepreneur. Despite having started off with no business plan, this man built on of the top ten Internet sites in the world. This is the story of Craigslist founder Craig Newmark and the top 3 lessons that you can learn from his success. "From the very beginning, I was involved in talking to people, listening to people. And it hasn't stopped. The idea was that people send me information; I'd ask them about it, listen, try to do something about it - and then ask for more feedback." - Craig Newmark Craig Newmark (born December 6, 1952) is an American entrepreneur that started with an idea to inform people that turned into Craigslist, a multimillion dollar Internet business. Newmark grew up in Morristown, New Jersey. His father, a salesman who peddled everything from food to insurance, died of lung cancer shortly after Newmark's bar mitzvah. His mother worked as a bookkeeper and struggled to make ends meet after her husband passed away. Newmark went to Morristown High School, where he became co-captain of the debate team, and also an active member of the forensics club. He also started his own club, which met regularly to play the game Go. A few years after graduating college, Newmark worked for IBM in Florida then for Charles Schwab in San Francisco. Newmark then began working as an independent consultant, taking on contracts with Bank of America, Xircom, Sun Microsystems and more. After several years of observing people on the Internet and how they used online tools to help each other out, Newmark decided to start his own email service to notify people about cool arts and technology events in San Francisco. When Newmark's simple email listings reached over 240 subscribers, he could no longer carry on as he was; even his cc field would not accept anymore email addresses. Instead of shutting down, Newmark decided to move his list to a public server for all to access. He wanted to call his new website "SF-Events" but some of his closer friends suggested calling it "Craigslist" to emphasize the personal and down-to-earth nature of the list. In its first few years, Newmark ran the site as a part-time hobby, continuing his consulting work full-time during the day. He tried to bring on some volunteers, but they did not pan out as Newmark expected. That is when he had an epiphany. He hired the right CEO and Craigslist took off. Craigslist was earning over $10 million in revenues by 2004. Then, in 2005, for a price tag of $15 million, eBay purchased a 25% stake in the company from a former shareholder. As of 2010, Craigslist was generating more than $122 million annually. Action Item #1: Get Out of the Way Action Item #2: Do Things Better Action Item #3: Listen True Story Despite his professional successes, Newmark struggled personally. He enrolled in ballet and jazz dance classes in order to meet women only to wind up in the hospital with a hernia. No matter what most people say, one of the biggest reasons Newmark started Craigslist was because of his struggling personal life. He is a self-admitted nerd, which really turned off women. He thought it was a good idea to start helping people by starting an email service for others like himself. After finally getting too many people using his email service, Newmark started Craigslist. According to him, it is the reason he has the girlfriend he has today. He likes to say that Craigslist has prevented hurting himself just to meet women. Out of this struggle for personal contact, Newmark built one of the top-ten websites in the world. According to recent statistics, more than five million people use the site every month and more than one billion pages of Craigslist are looked at every month. Quotes "There are different flavors of libertarianism, but my take is that its core values 'treat people like you want to be treated' and 'live and let live,' which works for most humans." "It has helped people who have a hard time meeting other people. They're using the site and becoming friends, lovers, and every possible twist on those two situations." "I admit that when I think of the money one could make from all this, I get a little twinge. But I'm pretty happy with nerd values: Get yourself a comfortable living, then do a little something to change the world." "Follow through with basic values, and remember to provide good customer service." What Do You Think? Do you get out of the way when you need to? Do you know when things need to be done better and then do it? Do you listen to people? Tell me what you think by leaving a message below.

Business Plan song
A song that I wrote for colleagues to raise awareness of our new business plan. We played this video at an away day, which the entire business attended. The day also included sketches acted out by colleagues to emphasise the different behaviours that support the vision and values of the business. At the end of the day our Chairman got the entire audience up singing the song, which was a little uncomfortable but very funny and memorable!

Building A Dive School Business in the Philippines - Victor
http://www.resortrebel.com - Your Resource on the Philippines http://www.badladz.com - Sean's Tropical Paradise Resorts Boracay has long been growing into the top tourist attraction in the Philippines. This week we dive in to talk with Victor, the owner of Victory Divers. He's been here for quite some time and has some advice he'd like to share about starting a business in the Philippines. Victor's Plan To Successfully Start A Business In The Philippines (Pre-Step) - Don't Bring a lot of money with you when you travel to in the Philippines 1. Live in the Philippines for a few months to see if you like the lifestyle. 2. Figure out how things work. Legal and community issues can make or break your business. 3. Find people you can trust. (As a foreigner traveling to the Philippines this can be the hardest step!) 4. Only when you know you like living in the Philippines, understand the legal landscape and legal loopholes, and have found business partners you can trust, invest your money cautiously. It's easy to lose all of your money on a bad investment, so be careful. 5. Live the dream of owning a business in the Philippines! == If you like scuba diving in general, then you’re going to want to make a living centered around it, a business plan to be more specific. So why not open a dive school that provides scuba diving lessons to newbies? It is an excellent business plan that will thrive in the Philippines! Your dive school will be packed by tourists, both local and foreign, who are lining up for scuba diving lessons from your hired professionals. Here in the Philippines, there are plenty of excellent dive spots scattered throughout the Philippine islands that scuba diving is part of every beach resort’s services. With scuba diving, you can have underwater adventures like exploring shipwrecks and interacting with marine animals! If you're planning on opening a dive shop in the Philippines, you'll have to sort out the legal issues well before you ever start thinking about filling scuba tanks. Otherwise, you'll be in a shaky situation with everyone (the government, your business partners and your neighbors) trying to steal your business from you. Getting everything sorted out so that you don't have any SURPRISES down the road will likely take outside help from a lawyer. Unfortunately, dealing with a lawyer while living in the Philippines can be risky in-and-of itself. Here's some tips to keep you from getting RIPPED OFF. Tips For Dealing With Lawyers In The Philippines 1. Don't Let Them Drag Court Cases Out - A 'Closed Case' simply means that your Filipino lawyer is now out of a job. Because of this, many people living in the Philippines discover that their court cases go on for years with no resolution. This is often because your lawyer is purposefully dragging out the legal process in order to earn more fees. 2. Bad Advice - Some people who travel in the Philippines and want to start a business hire a lawyer without realizing that this lawyer doesn't have their best interests in mind. These lawyers will sometimes give bad legal advice simply to complicate the situation and earn more legal fees. 3. Pick A Lawyer With Powerful Friends - If you pick the right lawyer, they will be friends with the judge who is presiding over your case. If your lawyer and the judge are friends, they will be able to sit down together and negotiate a decision that will close the case in your favor. This will be done 'cash in hand' and can save you years of stress at the witness stand. 4. There's no Government watchdog looking out for you. Especially if you aren't Filipino, you can't complain to anybody if your lawyer rips you off or if the court makes an unfair decision. It's the legal wild west out here, but you can buy your way out of problems if you need to. When starting a business in the Philippines, you're on your own. Ask long-term expat business owners for help, but don't trust anyone unless you've known them for a long time. == Cheers, Sean Book today at BADLADZ Adventure Resorts – http://badladz.com/ ====================================== BADLADZ Scuba Diving Muelle Pier, Puerto Galera 5203, Philippines Email scubadiving@badladz.com Mobile +63 998 989 8485 Land Line +63 43 287 3184 ====================================== BADLADZ Dive Resort Muelle Pier, Puerto Galera 5203, Philippines Email info@badladz.com Mobile +63 939 914 8819 ====================================== Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/badladz/ Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/badladz/ Twitter – https://www.twitter.com/badladzresorts/ Pinterest - https://www.pinterest.com/badladzresorts/ YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/user/BadLadzResort Subscribe - http://bit.ly/Subscribe-BADLADZ-YouTube -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Learn about: "BADLADZ Beach Resort in Puerto Galera Philippines" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgNM2VIxBkQ -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

How to Write a Business Plan - Identifying Your Target Market
http://www.businessloanservices.co.uk If you have to write a Business Plan, whether it's to help you get a business loan or just to give you direction, make sure you include a section identifying your target market. Your Business Plan has to demonstrate that you are clear in your own mind as to where your target market lies. If you are looking to convince the bank to lend you money show them in your Business Plan that you know your market ... a clear description of your typical client, where they live, what they earn and how they spend their money.
