Why have a Business Plan? See the business grow!

Many people see the Business Plan as THE tool to attract and convince investors into the business and they are right

However the Business Plan has another function:
it is to give you the focus and direction to what to do, when to do it and have indicators to tell that something went wrong ie it is time to make some changes.

Before you start the business, write one even if it only about some bullet points.

Inside the LFBA, you will find the different chapters inside the business plan and how to fill it in. We also include several templates such as the cash flow projection.

Good luck and call or email us. Let's get your project or dream become a reality.

Royal Wedding - Prince Harry & Meghan Markle

May 19th 2018, the world is changing....
The British Royal Family is accepting a new member in the Family.
Prince Harry is marrying Meghan Makle: a Royal Wedding  we are anxious to see.

Weddings are important to us as it helps us do a parallel between Fashion and Love.
It reminds us of a conversation we had with a Singaporean Designer in Paris. As we were explaining the Buyer/Seller relationship, the Designer said: 
"it's like courting". She was right 100%!

Can a man or woman win your heart for ever with just one rose? No, of course. 
With just one restaurant invitation? No, of course. 
The same applies to the "love" relationship between a Buyer and the Brand. As a Brand owner you need to court the Buyer.
