Writing a Business Plan

Your business plan should be:

  • A well thought-out document stating your dream and how you plan to develop and finance it.
  • Primarily for you, to prove that you can reach your goals - financial, as well as, personal.
  • In addition, for lenders, investors, even associates to fully understand what the business is to be and how it will be done.
