I’ve set out an action plan on paper – it includes dates that I need to meet and associated actions that need to be completed by those dates. Top of the list is a simple one:
- Business Plan
Issues it has thrown up for me so far include: will we need to be regulated, how can we secure our customers’ funds, how will we generate the return, who will build the site, what do we call it?! Starting a company is a maelstrom of ideas that pool together to produce... not a lot! Keeping focused on the end goal is crucial I think – what am I trying to achieve in the long run and how will I get there? I have always been very much a ‘strategic thinker’ – read: inability to focus on the minutiae – but a business plan FORCES one to look at the detail and consider the business from all aspects.
This is certainly fun, but tiring! Hence, good night for now!
