Create a Business Plan That Is Perfect for You [LEMONADE DAY]
“You were born to win, but to be a winner you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.” - Zig Ziglar
You have spent a very long time planning your Lemonade Day business. You’ve made so decisions over the last few months and now it’s time to put it all together. When you create a business plan, you organize all of your decisions in one place to tell a story about how you expect to achieve your goals.
At Lemonopolis, you’ve made decisions about your product, your stand, your location, hours of operation, your brand, and advertising. All of these decisions might make sense by themselves, but are you sure that they still make sense once you put them together? Does the plan work as a whole so you can achieve your goals?
Lemonopolis asks you to think of your business plan as a jigsaw puzzle. “When you put all the pieces together, you’ll have a clear picture of what your lemonade day business will look like. Review the business plan that has been created by you through Lemonopolis. Check to see if all the pieces fit together. If not, revise it to make it work, at least on paper. It’s far cheaper to make mistakes on paper than it is to make them in the real world.”
The goal is to maximize your profit during Lemonade Day weekend. Be sure to check out all six ways to participate in Lemonade Day My Way from Thursday, August 20 to Sunday, August 23.
