Do you have a business plan for your creative business? Business books and websites will tell you that the first thing you need when you start your business is a business plan. But those books and websites don’t explain how a creative business likes yours fits into their business plan template.
The Creative’s Business Plan is a hands-on workshop in which you’ll develop the right business plan for your creative business. You’ll learn what goes into a business plan and why you need one. You’ll master a simple, powerful framework to help you do the hard thinking that is required for any good business plan. Then you’ll start on the road to the right business plan for your creative business.
In this workshop you’ll:
- Learn about the critical components of any business plan and why they are important.
- Master a proven framework for doing the hard thinking that goes into any business plan and receive a template that you can use.
- Start on the road to an effective business plan that meets the needs of your business.
