We always recommend you ask two questions:

  1. What are you trying to accomplish? (e.g. create a new product, enter a new market, etc.)
  2. What are the obstacles that are stopping you from accomplishing your goal?

You can see how the questions would fit perfectly into the above list.

Don’t Forget to Include the Tasks

The last thing you want to do is leave out the tasks. Figure out the main tasks your friend needs to do to accomplish her goals and make sure they are listed.

Here’s an example of a marketing plan you could create for your friend using the above questions:
