Plan to Succeed 

A written business plan allows a banker, investor or another interested party to look through the plan at his or her own pace, as often as necessary.

That plan shows not only how good your business is and how realistic your plans for it are, but also how well organized and capable you are. 

Most existing business owners get caught up in day-to-day tasks and fail to focus on the things they planned to do to grow the business. Business planning gives you a chance to take a breath, consider how your business matches your plan and what new business strategies or initiatives should be considered. Modify the plan as needed. Move neglected items at the top of your priority list. Periodic reviews for a new company should be weekly, monthly, or quarterly. Review as a business matures can be semiannually or annually.
