Startup Daddy is a Business Startup Podcast hosted by Ian Gordon.  We discuss the issues surrounding getting a business started, and growing your business once you get it off the ground.

  • I have not looked into getting funding before so have never done a full business plan I just judge it on how much profits it makes. I consider funding as debt on the company and in a way it functions in a similar way.

    • Phil, you are dead on.  Most companies never need funding.  There are so many more reasons to do a business plan though!  Just going through the process of creating the document will give you insights into your business that are well worth the effort.

    • What are you having trouble with?  The links in this post are not downloads, but links to other content.  The episode link works if you are trying to download that, and the links for the Bplan templates are sent when you sign up to the newsletter.

      Cheers!

I appreciate the Knowledge you are passing on and I do have a great desire to Teach people with the drive to make a living doing what they Love.

    Hi Ian,

    Many thanks for the start up documents, they mean to me a firm, dedicated and professional way of looking into my own business requirements. I have always been in need of some basic tools which will give my thoughts wings to fly. I have found them through you.

    Thank you once again..
