What one top tip would you give to a business owner embarking on a growth plan?
Ensure you have a robust business plan and financial forecasts in place. Preparing a detailed business plan forces you to think through how you are going to start, grow, and potentially even exit a business. It allows you to critically analyse your objectives, financial requirements, strategies and business structure whilst ensuring that you understand your marketplace, competitors, and how you might position your business to take advantage.
