Step 3: PLAN YOUR BIZ
If you don't know where your business is going, you sure won't get there. So before you invest your time, money and sanity, think through in detail what the biz will do: what obstacles you'll face; how much $ it'll take, and what you'll make. Mapping out your biz plan on paper will help you see the real picture (like will this bring home the bacon?). And a business plan is a "must have" if you'll be courting investors or lenders.
