Don’t write a business plan until you have read this article!

There’s a big difference between planning for a successful creative business and ‘writing a business plan’. The two are not necessarily the same.

A ‘business plan’ does not automatically guarantee business success. Many business plans present the details but fail to address the fundamentals.

Any plan for a creative or digital business must be based on the values and objectives of the entrepreneurs concerned and at its heart must be a realistic ‘business formula’.

This article shows you how to combine your own unique values and objectives to create a business formula that works.
