Reply To: Kia Ora, My name is Jayde im am 26 years old and of Moari & Pasific Island..I was at Melville high school prize giving and heard Patrick MacFies speech and heard him talk about this website. I am starting my business up doing datenight setups for couples girls nights ect.. Im need help with writing up a business plan so I can seek funding could you help me out with a template and point me in the direction of either a mentor or places where I can apply for funding. Thank you for your time


Kia Ora – I wish I was there – watched on playback, post his trip, so good watching and so amazing to see Lachey – wicked.

Good on you for reaching out – this is a place you can just come with your questions of the experts, and they can respond to these – then if you find someone on this site who really wants to engage off line that can happen.

Another option to consider also would be Business Mentors NZ – if you google or just checkin here – https://www.businessmentors.org.nz/small-business-mentoring?utm_term=grow%20your%20business&utm_campaign=Register+for+a+mentor&utm_source=adwords&utm_medium=ppc&hsa_acc=5665296025&hsa_cam=6499443014&hsa_grp=77758727173&hsa_ad=428184856970&hsa_src=g&hsa_tgt=kwd-301161699276&hsa_kw=grow%20your%20business&hsa_mt=b&hsa_net=adwords&hsa_ver=3&gclid=CjwKCAiA17P9BRB2EiwAMvwNyOhV3ScpRjygwF1uv4s89GMvJcc_d8w6KfAo3zcahgxFsXZUfnRExRoCwWUQAvD_BwE

In terms of some resources for you around business plan templates, here we go – check them out –

I really like the approach of using the Lean Canvas to get your ideas focus – rather than a business plan.

Good luck!!
