With regards to a Business Plan I tend to say there is one you do for the bank to get the funding for your dream, and then after six month you do one for yourself.

That was my original business plan when I opened my business 12.5 years ago, I am still hear and going strong even though many said I was mad to give up a secure job and jump into a business with no clients, and limited savings.

All the best.

ps Add cupcakes to the menu and you will be blazing., run baking classes as well Australia is currently in Food Heaven mode they love all things food & coffee. Just make sure you get your pricing right on finished goods
