Death to the business plan

I have many friends that have great business ideas. Yet, many suffer from this idea that you need a fortified business plan in order to begin.

Here’s my advice: Throw away that business plan.

A great business plan doesn’t take months to put together. The best business plans take a couple minutes. And then, you begin.

Business plans are another form of hiding. As the saying goes, “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”

Starting a business is all about improving and inventing. If you are not doing those two things than you are not spending your time in the right areas.

Talking about someday building a business is way sexier than actually making one. It’s hard work spent behind the scene.
