What is THE BIG WHY?
The BIG WHY is why your company is needed for society. We don’t mean why your product or service is better! We mean why your company is needed within our society. Question you can ask yourself when starting your business plan are:
- What makes it that makes you company special?
- Why does nobody do it the way you (new) company does or will do?
- How does society benefit from you having a company and why is this really benefit?
- What is the difference you make that is really a difference?
The second most important aspect of a Business Plan is your Vision!
If you know what is your BIG WHY, the second most important aspect is your vision about the world in 5 tot 15 years from now. People say that the real visionairs can see beyond the horizon and that is your second task when starting to write a business plan. The business plan coaches of CallTheONE can help you by asking question about your vision. Question they could ask are:
- How does the world look like in 10 years when you think about your service or product?
- What will be the shopping or purchase behaviour of your kind of customers in 10 years?
- How will the competition behave in 10 years? Etc
Become a Profit or a Meaningful Profit Enterprise
Based on your vision you can decide if you want to become a traditional Profit Enterprise or if a Meaningful Profit Business Model is better for your business.
You don’t need to have a detailed view about it but for creating a vision it it very useful ask many of these kind of questions. Because after that you can ask yourself the final question:
What is the dream I have about the world and why is my (future) company needed to contribute to this world?
Once you wrote this down by yourself or with the help of ONE of the Business Coaches at CallTheONE, you can make your next steps and potentially create the Best Business Plan ever!
