Business Start-Up Model
Now that we have established that initial planning is important when starting a business, the next question is how do you go about it? Some people tend to plan and schedule in Excel, but Tom’s Planner’s many intuitive features allow you to create a flexible start-up checklist with just a few clicks. Plus, our template has all the main steps completed in advance for you (which you can also customize to your exact needs, of course). All you need to do is insert the actual tasks and drag them out to the desired time period and duration. This way you won’t end up hiring staff before agreeing on how to share the profit later (which is a good idea if you value the mental and physical health of your team).
Business plan guide and template
Tom’s Planner also has lots of other neat features that can help you with your planning. Symbols and comments that can be added onto your tasks provide extra clarity. The planning process can be frustrating so throw in a party icon after major milestones: celebrating accomplishments with at least one beer keg is at least as important as selecting a corporate jurisdiction. Special columns are also very handy and let you see total hours per row, start dates, end dates and more. And as far as flexibility is concerned, moving tasks about, editing them or inserting new ones is a breeze. Bottom line: you can spend less time on your business start-up plan and more on getting things done.
Your business partner can be anyone from your college room-mate to someone you met in a Malaysian chat room. Whatever the case, we made sure Tom’s Planner is great at sharing and collaborating online. Changes on the business plan template can be observed and edited by key people in real time, from a desktop PC or mobile applications like iPhone or iPad.
