I need help with a business plan! 

Have you heard the saying, “Businesses don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan?”  It’s true – whether you are just starting out or are growing your business -- having a well thought-out, written business plan can help you stay on track for success.  A business plan can help you get organized, support an application for a loan, and serve as a roadmap to take your business in the right direction. 

Although business plans generally follow a generic outline, no two plans are exactly alike.  Your plan would include key success factors for your specific industry.  And you would write your plan for a specific audience:  a plan written as an internal document to guide your day-to-day operations would be different from one developed for a banker or an investor.
