NNBA Nurse Entrepreneur News – 09/15/2022
This past week I had a couple of interviews scheduled that I planned to record for the Nurse Entrepreneur’s Exchange with NNBA business owners. Speaking with nurses and sharing their stories is always something I look forward to. It turns out my neighbor had different plans for the week by having his driveway resurfaced. The subsequent noise lasted all week and negated my plans, forcing me to call the nurses to re-schedule. Many times, the plans we make can’t be followed through on because of unexpected circumstances, however, that doesn’t mean the process of planning doesn’t hold benefit and commensurate value.
Nurses that desire to start or expand their business benefit from writing a business plan even if their eventual business is different from their original plan. The process of planning helps us reflect on the future, visualize the outcome we want to achieve, and organize action steps towards that outcome. When plans go awry, the planning process itself strengthens us to deal with challenges, problem solve, and encourages our creative thinking.
NNBA’s Nurses Business Planning Toolkit has three different business planning tools and templates. For nurses interested in expanding their business, I recommend the Lean Business Plan. The one that is most popular with nurses starting a business is the Mini Business Plan. Within the membership area is expanded information with each type of plan, in what circumstances they are used as well as templates.
