Saying Thanks

Rarely in my experience does an idea come to me without the help or assistance of something I’ve read (or someone I’ve talked with) while in search of an answer for a client. 

This couldn’t be more true than lately, as I’ve taken on a number of projects that have pushed me beyond creative limits. I’ve had to draw from not only my own skill set and experience - but from experts outside my network; borrowing new concepts and applying these to my own business challenges. 

To Write or Not to Write, that is the question …or is it?

Depending on what you read, writing a business plan is often described as highly impactful by some - or a waste of time by others. However I’m not convinced it’s an ‘either or' answer.  

In my experience, it’s not the writing of a ‘plan’ per se that’s important - but rather the thinking and language that crystallizes ideas (and biases) during the process of writing it down.

I recently decided to test out my client Business Plan process - on myself.

It would be an experiment on two fronts: initially to test the user experience and flow of the process and second, as a test case for a side business I have been considering for some time now.

So laptop in hand, and a spare couple of hours - off I went.
