Building a Strong Business Plan
|You’ll want to start this process approximately 10 months before you plan to open your doors.
Begin planning for professional success – your business plan…but also expect chaos! Stuff happens. Your partner gets transferred to a foreign country. There is a fire in your building. Examine how well you can roll with the inevitable chaos of life, and can you rebound and even turn the chaos into a positive experience? “Perhaps I can set up a new practice in the foreign country or now we can build a bigger clinic.” Think about what makes a good business person.
In addition to the above, a good business person shows attention to detail, is highly motivated, confident, focused, and ethical. There will also be times of hardship, when you will feel like giving up. This is where your solid goals and proactive attitude will get you through.
