Creating a Business Plan for a Building & House Leveling Business
A common mistake for a small business owner is to not create a business plan.
A good business plan establishes both a framework and a roadmap for your business. If you don't have a business plan, your leadership will be handicapped, choosing short-term opportunities at the expense of long-term benefits.
Start by defining your business mission. The process of writing a mission statement doesn't have to be complicated. From there, it's time to initiate the hard work involved with writing the rest of your building and house leveling company's business plan.

A Good Source of Advice

Fortunately, somebody who runs a building and house leveling business on the other side of the country can be a great learning resource for you, provided that you won't be directly competing with them. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. In my experience, you may have to call ten business owners in order to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.
