Welcome to Biz Tip Tuesday, on today’s episode I will share how creative entrepreneurs can create a simple business plan that supports their passions. On the podcast I challenge the traditional model of a business plan and move you towards creating a plan that’s based on three things:
1.) A true roll up your sleeves kind of passion, 2.) The development of a product or service that you truly love creating, something based on sweat equity and passion and, 3.) A way to share your passion with others that will entice them to want to work with you now and in the future.
“Find something that you love doing so much that you’re willing to pay to do it! Choose now because in the beginning, you will.”
The Creative Entrepreneurs Business Plan has 5 parts and today I discuss the first two. On this podcast I focus on the first two areas.
Get clear about your passions, what do you really love to do? You’re going to be working your ass off so you better love what you’re doing. If not, find something that you do love and can get excited about. If you’re having trouble remembering what you’re passionate about recall your favorite day. What were you doing?
Decide what you’re going to sell, even if it’s free for now. If you’re looking for ideas and inspiration locate people doing something very close to what you want to do. Go to Google and do a search for your chosen business idea, read magazines, forums, find books, sign up for classes (free and paid) bottom line, if someone has created a successful business based on anything you’re passionate about then there is room for you. Do your homework and if you need help figuring it out use my Income Idea Generator Worksheet provided below.
