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?

I, Toldyah
