The Initial Plan
Now this goes beyond simply establishing the trade your business will be based around, it should also include clear cut goals to be hit a set amount of time after your business is officially established. However, always remember to leave at least some wiggle room for your plan to be adapted as and when required, as no matter how well prepared you are you simply cannot predict what waits around every corner.
