The key word is Focus. You must focus on a market niche where you have something 'unique' to offer prospects that exactly meets their needs and where there is no competition. It's sometimes not as hard as it sounds.

If you cannot come up with something, then it should be back to the drawing board. The e-book in my signature gives more information on how best to succeed.

I've written plenty of positive articles. Just read my blog. I've also written articles that aren't so positive. As a writer, I try to present both ends of the spectrum. That's called being balanced.

Business plan MUST be based in a strong Market Research. Which can be done by yourself with a little of patience. Te goal of a Business Plan is not to finish it nice, instead it must be done and reflect real market scenario.
