Strategy – Summary

This tab is called the “Strategy Summary” tab.
Please type of a description of the forward looking strategy that you have decided to go with.
This should be detailed, and it must contain the following information:
1. How much money are you willing to spend on your strategy? What will it cost?
2. What is the source of these funds? Are you using cash, selling stock, getting personal investors to contribute?
3. What is the expected return on this investment?
4. What is the timing of both the expenses and the return?
Important considerations:
Most strategies play out over several years, so I want to see your thinking out 2-3 years on both expenses and revenue.
“Keep doing what you are doing” is NOT a strategy. That usually leads to failure.
Show me HOW you estimated your costs, and your revenue. Online research is very helpful here – show me your sources.
Make sure you are using a strategy that was generated and recorded on the Strategies tab. That insures proper analysis.
Think boldly. Most daring strategies are not conservative in nature.
Type the summary of your strategy here:
