The First Step to a Successful Business: Writing a Business Plan Says Amazon Founder

 The First Step to a Successful Business: Writing a Business Plan

The advice below comes from the Founder and CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos.

Jeff Bezos is an American entrepreneur who played a key role in the growth of e-commerce as the founder and chief executive officer of Amazon.com, Inc., an online merchant of books and later of a wide variety of products. Under his guidance, Amazon.com became the largest retailer on the World Wide Web and the model for Internet sales. -Wikipedia

"So, you want to start a company...Well, the first thing you do is you should write a business plan, and so I did that. I wrote about a 30-page business plan. I wrote a first draft.."

"You know the business plan won't survive its first encounters with reality. It will always be different. The reality will never be the plan, but the discipline of writing the plan forces you to think through some of the issues and to get sort of mentally comfortable in the space. Then you start to understand, if you push on this knob this will move over here and so on. So, that's the first step." -Source

Now is the time to get your business plan started. If you don't have a business plan, you will never really know exactly what you want to do; where you want to go and ultimately what your goals are for the future. A business plan can open many doors for you as well as make your business goals visually clear.
