Creating a Business Plan for an Astrologers Business
A common mistake for a small business owner is to launch your company without having written a business plan.
The key benefit of writing a business plan is that it establishes both a framework and a roadmap for your business. Without it, you'll be flying blind, making decisions that could be detrimental to your astrologers business's values and long-term goals.
Start by defining your business mission. The process of writing a mission statement doesn't have to be complicated. With a carefully crafted mission statement in place, the other piece of the business plan puzzle will begin to fall in place.

How tough is the competition in the market you are considering? If the competition is too tough, you may need to think about starting the business in a different area or even start a completely different business instead.
Studying the Market
Once you've finished assessing the competion, it's a wise move to learn from folks who are already in business. If you think your local competitors will give you advice, you're being overoptimistic. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started an astrologers business in a location that is not competitive to you may be willing to share their entrepreneurial wisdom with you, after they realize you reside far away from them and won't be stealing their local customers. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. It can take a while to find an entrepreneur who is willing to talk, but it's well worth the effort.
The key question new becomes: how to find an astrologers business owner who is willing to talk to you but doesn't live nearby?
