Four Steps to Business Planning for Plan-Phobic Creatives
I’ve heard many reasons why you might not like business planning. It inhibits your sense of creative flow. It takes up too much time. What would you put in a plan? Or you absolutely love to plan. Checking things off that to-do list is an obsession for you. Give you a color-coded system and you are over the proverbial moon. Or you’re in the middle, that place where you know you should plan, but you’re not sure why. People tell you it’s important to grow your creative life, but you don’t know where to start.

I’m not talking about the whole mission-vision-values and documentation that would make even the most organized person’s head spin.
