The Importance of Business Planning

Business planning is essential for the success of any business, but it is especially important for startups and businesses that are determined to record increasing profits. Far too many business owners overlook or put too little emphasis on business planning to the detriment of the business. As the saying goes, “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” This has been proven to be true and Forbes magazine reports that as much as 90% of business start ups fail!

To avoid falling into this 90%, the wealth advisors at New England Investment and Retirement Group suggest preparing a realistic business plan before investing in a business that may be doomed to failure from the outset. A proper business plan will help business owners to avoid mistakes that result from lack of planning and careful analysis. A business plan need not be a complicated document. However, it must cover all the major aspects of the business and must cover such areas as management, financing, marketing, staffing, operations, and exit strategies.

As most business owners hold a wide range of responsibilities and challenges to bring a business all together, it is often best to seek assistance from a business planning professional or financial advisor to ensure everything is put into place.
