If you want to make owning a business fun, create the business you want. There is a famous line from a movie, “If you build it, they will come.” That line definitely has its place in business creation and development. Just as there is a lid for every pot, there is a business for every consumer. As an entrepreneur the first and most important person that an entrepreneur must get to return to the business each day is the entrepreneur  herself. One of the chores that is often forgotten in business creation and business development plans is finding ways to make the business one where the entrepreneur must work and enjoyable place for the entrepreneur.

When you look at the typical business plan, there is a place to fill in all kinds of information from the executive summary, to personnel, marketing, finances and financial projections. By completing these sections one will end up with a good business plan and if followed, chances for success will be increased. However, all that planning does not include a section for enjoyment. Enjoying the business one creates is an important part of what contributes to the longevity and sustainability of a business.
