If you’re looking at the episode title and thinking that creating a business plan isn’t for you or it’s not really necessary well let me tell that you are wrong on both accounts.
Starting and running a business can certainly be difficult, but if you have a plan or “blueprint” then you have a path that you can follow.
Take for example today’s guest . . . after a career as a medical doctor she started planning her business by reading books, because Google did not exist, but fast forward to today. . . she’s running several successful businesses, because she started it with a blueprint or a business plan.
Todays special guest is no other than the founder of Shiffa Beauty, Dr. Lamees Hamdan and she’s going to give us her tips and thoughts about how creating your business plan is an essential ingredient in building your beauty business.
