There are many reasons for having a business plan. Many Nurse Practitioners think of a business plan as a long, arduous document that you take to a bank or other financial institution or investor in order to secure funding for your business. However, there are other reasons, perhaps even more important, that make a business plan essential.
A business plan for your business and practice helps guide you and give you focus on your goals and aspirations. It’s your road map if you will.
Enter One Page Business Plans. Jim Horan is the author of OPBP. He has developed a easy to follow template of writing your plans in ONE page. I like it because it’s easy to tell at a glance what you are doing, remind you of your goals, and allows you to update it very easily. In a sense, it’s a mind map of your company.
This template is easy. There are five key areas you will want to consider and address. The tighter your statements, more specific you goals and action steps, the more useful this document will be.
What are the areas?
While this Horan is focused on using this system for business plans, I see no reason why one cannot transfer this system to their personal lives. Indeed, use it for all your goals.
Give this a try and let us know how it’s working for you.
