I have a new creative hero ! (I am NOT being compensated in any way for saying so.)
If you have been through the absolute drudgery of trying to write a traditional business plan, I share your pain.
Did you do it? Did you actually suffer through the entire process?
Not me. I wasted my money on the software. But I never could finish one. Traditional business plans take my passion and suck the joy right out of it. I have tried to push through it, but my brain just doesn't want to work that way.
Boring Business Plan Problem Solved !
I found an inspiring website for serious entrepreneurs who hate kill-joy planning.
Is there really such a thing as business planning without hours of non-productive mental straining?
Before reading Jennifer Lee's take on right-brained, creative visual business plans, I would have said absolutely not!
To put it simply, Jennifer Lee teaches right-brained, creative individuals how to thrive in a left-brained, boring business world. She taught me how to painlessly build a right-brained business plan while doing what I love to do.
I know YOU can do this, too!!!
On her site, The Right-Brain Business Plan, you will find free and paid tools to help you. (This includes a free online workshop I'll be attending next month.)
FYI: If you use a 8 1/2 X 11 planner, Circa carries Jennifer Lee's pre-made right brain planner worksheets. The pre-made sheets are too large for my Happy Planner. But that's OK. I have enjoyed putting my own pages together using Jennifer's advice as a guide.
Check out her book: The Right-Brain Business Plan. to know what to include in your plan. (Nope. There is no money in it for me.)
One more thing...
Something as important as a business plan could really use some input from your soul. My passion is teaching you how to summon the full strength of your soul. I can't stress enough what a difference it can make to go through a soul discovery process before attempting to create a business plan. (I don't charge for this.)
Thank you for all of the great ideas and inspiration Jennifer!
