Writing a Business Plan

Chapter Description

A good business plan will walk you through each step of beginning and running a company. Your business plan will serve as a road map for establishing, running, and growing your new company. It’s a method of considering the most critical aspects of your company.


Business plans can assist in obtaining funds and attracting new business partners. Investors want to know they’ll get a good return on their money. Your business plan will be the instrument you use to persuade others that working with you — or investing in your firm — is a wise investment.
