A plan in the hand is worth….?what? to the bank?
Planning, planning, planning……..
Yep – honing the business plan. Hard but valuable work. ‘Cos it’s in the planning that the strengths, weaknesses and gaps become clear. And boy have I found gaps LOL. But filling them has been a lot of fun and made a better end product to offer.
But I have also some strengths which have been confidence boosters.
The weaknesses – well – they were clear from the start hehe. A Mum with a Quality and Innovations background working an IT startup……. I can hear you laughing. (Ooooooooooooooh look – a clue to what I am doing! Stay tuned – the next few blogs have more clues coming up). First one to guess correctly will become Toldyah’s Chief Entertainment Officer (a joke really – unless you actually want the job?).
The financials is the scary bit. Working on those right now after 3 days of Financial Business Planning at Bizness Babes last week. Hmmmmm – anyone got a spare $100,000 to get me over the hump until the business turns a profit? Yes?????? Fantastic – just write your cheque out to the Toldyah Nigerian Scam account………. Of course if Mssrs Gates, Branson, Page, Ortega (Zara), or other members of the squillionaires club are reading – happy to accept donations or investment options!
Well, time to get back to the business planning – got to get it ship-shape so I can go beg some money to complete the dream and make Toldyah THE place to be seen. Let me see 200 + 600 equals….. where’s that excel spreadsheet?
