Every business should have a business plan. But chances are it won’t hold up to reality. What? Why have a business plan then? Business Plans are here for one reason, to get you to think through your business by putting your thoughts on paper so you can see the big picture of how your business can potentially function. By doing this you should be able to see what should work, where you need help, and where potential problems might be. It is a very important exercise that will help you bring your idea into business reality.

Just realize that once your business gets up and running, it might not function as how you have it in your business plan. It doesn’t mean any thing is wrong with either your business or business plan. You just need to be aware of it and make changes accordingly.
