Business Plan for Creative People
Template created by Monica Davidson of Freelance Success
It’s not actually possible to create a perfect template for a creative person’s business plan – a
business plan is unique to each creative endeavour, and unique to the person building their
business. However, this document can hopefully give you some guidelines and ask some thoughtprovoking questions to get you on the right track.
In this template you’ll find an organised collection of ideas and suggestions to help you create your
own business plan, one that tells the story of your creative business in an interesting and engaging
way. It’s probably best used more for the process than the final document, so feel free to keep the
finished document private, and never show it to anyone else.
However, you can also use this process to create a Business Plan document for others to see, to
help them understand your plans for financing, marketing and achieving your goals.
