Business Planning: One of the Keys to Success
(WARNING: Failure to complete a business plan could be hazardous to your business)

A business plan should set forth the nature of the proposed business or explain how you expect to change your existing business. It should include measurable objectives of profitability, expected sales volume, and financial forecasts over time. The process of putting a business plan together forces you to take an objective, critical, and unemotional look at the proposed business or expansion in its entirety. It should map a strategy to obtain the goals set forth. Whatever your business, a well thought-out plan will put you ahead of the competition. It also can be your best means of communicating to lenders, investors and even your own management team.

Without an effective business plan most new and existing businesses will have a hard time succeeding. A business plan is similar to a road map. As with any long trip, you will often meet obstacles, delays or other impediments to your progress. With a business plan, as with a road map, you can more easily find alternative routes to help you reach your ultimate destination.

When we send you the final business plan, we also send copies of our proprietary software that we used to develop your projections and business plan.  That way, you can frequently update your projections, perform a financial analysis of your business at any time and revise your business plan as needed.  This software have a value by itself of over $400.00 and it is included free with every business plan ordered through us.

It should be noted, that although our rates are considerably below what most others charge (sometimes one-half) for a top-notch business plan, our plans are not cheap imitations.  We charge less because we have little overhead, we do not have to make a lot of money from any one business plan, and we truly enjoy working with small business hopefuls or existing business owners and enjoy being a small part of their success by developing a winning business plan.  Our plans have been acclaimed by attorneys, accountants, lenders, managers, consultants, suppliers, landlords and many many others as the best they have ever seen. We take great pride in giving exceptional value for the price.  Our philosophy is that we would rather be working with half a dozen business plans at any one time and doing a great job on each one rather than handling dozens at a time and doing a mediocre job on each one.

Advantages of a good business plan:

Clearly and specifically define your concept or objective. Your definition of the business should not be to broad nor to narrow.
Identifies your proposed market and addresses your potential.
Identifies your competition and how you can best compete with them.
Forces you to evaluate any gaps or contradictions in your planning.
Can help convince potential lenders or investors that your project if conceptually sound and potentially profitable.
Helps you measure your performance.
Allows you to make necessary changes if you have a blueprint by which to compare actual performance.
Can help determine the right kind of legal entity (i.e. Proprietorship, Partnership, or Corporation.)
