If you’re an entrepreneur, you’ve no doubt heard a thousand times over that it’s important to build a proper business plan. Most business owners will only write one if they have to get a loan or persuade potential investors. With all of your other responsibilities as an entrepreneur, you’re probably wondering if writing a 20 pages long business plan is worth the bother.

The crucial step

The principal downside of this course though is that it won’t explain how to “make” it.

It will show you an example of how you could structure the elements too. You got the points right? It’s simply not the purpose of the course. You’ll have to learn that part somewhere else.
The last section
The last 20 minutes is an example of a mind map for a freelancer. It could help clarify things for a freelancer, but we really think it doesn’t have any significant value to the others. You can totally skip it, but if you watch it just don’t make yourself any big expectations. Hopefully it doesn’t discourage you from looking at it! It doesn’t take anything from the cooled parts.
