A beans and rice business plan
Beans and rice? But I need a software business plan.
We help you prepare a great business plan for a successful business whether you’re into software, granite, music or medicine, or most anything.
Preparing a great business plan and creating a successful business is kind of like cooking beans and rice. Both take talent, work and lots of patience. Add some spice and creative presentation and you’re on your way to having a great business plan for any type business; and then actually having a successful business (along with a great recipe for beans and rice).
What’s this mean?
The ‘beans and rice’ of your business plan is a back-to-basics reminder that creating a successful business isn’t fast-food. It’s real cooking. There’s always somebody out there trying to convince us that they have the secret to a faster, better business; a less work, heat-and-eat, quick fix deal. No way. It doesn’t work like that.
Start with the basics of sound business principles and you’ll find that you’re already planning for success. Think ‘beans and rice.’ That meal isn’t an afterthought that magically appears on the dinner table. It took work and patience. Wash and soak the beans, cook for hours; and rice can be tricky. A budget, weekly menu and a grocery list were most likely involved long before the cooking even started. This is the mindset for success.
As with beans and rice, success involves forethought, planning, patience and a clear understanding of anticipated results. Here are a few back-to-basic tips:
- Do what you love
- Do it better than anybody else
