The initial stage of your business plan entails taking your vision about your entrepreneurial
venture and establishing a roadmap for creating it through fruition. An integral part of the
business plan is to develop a business model. Simply put, a business model describes how a
company plans to make money. It is not what you do, but how you will make money doing
what you do. The actual financial results come from your company as a money-making
machine (Meyer & Crane, 2014).
A solid business model is the link between the venture strategy and financial plans. Projecting
the financial performance and requirements can be classified as financial goals of the venture.
