Fareham, Hampshire (PRWEB UK) 31 December 2013
Marketing and business growth consultant Russell Streeter has launched a new business planning service for small and medium-sized owner-managed businesses.
Streeter is a qualified accountant and Member of the Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs, who started his career at professional services firm PricewaterhouseCoopers before going on to work with a range of organisations, including FTSE 100 companies.
"I decided to start offering the service after becoming frustrated at the number of businesses that do not have a formal plan."
The service will draw on his experience in finance, operational management, systems and controls and, of course, business growth and development, to put together a comprehensive plan to achieve success.
"I believe successful businesses have a clear vision, detailed plans of how to achieve it and a series of short, medium and long-term goals to measure progress."
"This process is essential for start-ups, even if financing is not required. Yet established businesses will also benefit from detailed planning, whether they are considering a change of direction of just need to refresh their plans."
"Many small business owners face the same challenge: they’re too close to their operations to be able to take an objective view of the opportunities that are available. This is especially true where there is just one shareholder and no board of directors to offer advice."
Drawing up a detailed business plan encourages entrepreneurs to critically analyse their business ideas, as well as the operational plans, financial projections, marketing strategy, and so on.
At the same time, business owners will get an objective view from an outsider.
"If you keep just one New Year’s resolution this year, let it be to set your business on the right course in 2014."
