A Step-by-Step Approach to Writing a One-Page Business Plan

June 10 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EDT

Free

“If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else,” said the great Yogi Berra.

Writing a one-page plan is highly useful because it forces you to be very focused and clear in your statements. As a result, it enables you to see quickly in a glance what you need to know to keep moving your business forward in the right direction.

In this hands-on workshop, led by expert business coach Jennifer Dawn, you will learn:

  • How to create a one-page business plan to guide the direction and growth of your company
  • Eliminate distraction and begin working with focus and purpose
  • How to take a step back and understand the scope and the strategy behind your tactics

Come prepared with a pen and paper, as you’ll walk away with a business plan that you can begin to execute immediately.

Kalamazoo County Land Bank logo

The Kalamazoo Land Bank did robust community engagement around the vision and gave us something to work with that was solidly desired by people in the neighborhood. Having a vision meant we had to protect it. That’s something I thank the Land Bank for. It was difficult. It didn’t make anything faster or easier, but we got a better project in the end as a result of it.
