One of the things that I've found very helpful for people in business or going into business is to develop a business plan. The challenge is to overcome the temptation of saying to yourself, "I really don't need a business plan." There are in fact, several very good reasons that you should have one, as I recently explained to a group of potential entrepreneurs in Sherwood Park, located just east of Edmonton, Alberta.
This spring, I was very pleased to again facilitate the BUSINESS START-UP SERIES that was hosted by Strathcona County Economic Development and Tourism, and the Sherwood Park and District Chamber of Commerce. While some of the attendees were already 'up and running' most were still in the early stages of setting up their businesses. Attendees were all eager to gather insights and information from the experts participating and appreciated the valuable learning that took place, with the generous support of the series sponsors: RBC Financial and Servus Credit Union.
