Evelyn Bandoh

Creative People CAN be Successful Business People-

The first thing that people tell people who want to start a business to do is to write a business plan. I agree. But is a 20-30 page business plan really useful for someone who wants to "create" for a living?

Before I tell someone to "write a plan", I ask to them to honestly "explore entrepreneurship" and then answer 7 basic questions- questions that help a person write a more relevant and realistic business plan. This presentation will share those 7 questions and enlighten people to empower their own destinies.
