Failing to plan is often synonymous to planning to fail. Every successful business needs a budget to stick to thereby helping and monitor its spending levels. This is a very important tool to help compare money going in and out of the business versus what was envisaged thus ensuring that the business is meets its financial goals. Most people going into business for themselves for the first time need a solid financial plan (budget), which serves as a navigation system to the company. Just like a person headed to a destination for the first time without knowing directions, lack of a budget would lead you to uncharted territories which typically are losses and failures. Furthermore, bankers and investors sometimes need a plan before funding your business. They want to make sure that you make viable use of any funds provided to you.
