Business Plan, the Uncommon Sections

So my mission for Saturday was moved to Sunday. Yesterday I spent at Red Rock taking a hike through the mountains. It was fun. There was a man who set up a whole dinner up at the waterfall to propose to his girlfriend. He set up the whole thing, had a guy playing Part of Your World and Can You Feel the Love Tonight and other Disney inspired music on a cello. Very sweet, not particularly my style, but sweet indeed.

Anyways, today I have a few pictures of my business plans. Some are the old drafts but I thought it was important to show them. I think the important things to note are (though you may not be able to decipher them in the photos) the measurement of success, expected outcome, and resources. These are a few categories that are not as common as listing the task, the actions involved, and the date they are to be done so are therefore often overlooked. However, the are just as important.

In the measurement of success section, make sure to log how you find the particular action successful. An example maybe, if your task is to update your twitter with daily posts, you may find that the success is in the amount of followers increasing regularly. The more followers in the shorter amount of time equals a greater success.

The expected outcome section is similar to the measurement of success but not the same. In this area you will want to include what you want the finished task to produce, not taking into account exactly what makes it successful. For instance, if your task is to design a cover and your expected outcome is to have a cohesive, interesting design that will draw attention, then your measurement of success would be your audience having a positive reaction to the design.

Almost the same but not quite.

The last, often overlooked section of a business plan is the resources section. In this section you list the tools you will need for any particular task. Will you need the Internet, good sleep, specific programs, images, or other people? All of these things may seem obvious, but sometimes listing them just insures you do not forget to keep those tools at hand when you sit done to work.





Also, I know these pictures are not great, sorry.
