Learn how to write a business plan – custom, SBA approved, with these easy to follow instructions.
Instructions are on the right of this page. Every required segment of the business plan is included.
A real life business plan example is given for each section.
Loan officers and SBA (Small Business Association) reps are not impressed with the 100 page, corporate type business plans, and in fact prefer simpler, to the point business plans.
Check out the business plan outline in the post to the right of this screen. But don’t panic thinking it looks too complicated. We will be taking each item and writing just a few paragraphs (maybe even just one or two).
As with the outline, do not be overwhelmed when you see all the questions. Take it one step at a time and you WILL learn how to write a business plan. (Hate writing? Try this idea.)
Lenders want to see custom business plans, not business plans created with templates or software. Using this free tutorial you will learn how to write a business plan that is unique and customized for your business. Read more about business plan templates.
You are right about not using a business plan template…I bought a business plan template. I spent months working on it, but it was not my plan, it was not me…The template was not cutting it.
Then one day I googled and found you. I thank God for you, because I finished the first draft… I can see the vision clear on paper, and the numbers are matching.
Thank you so much.
According to Tim Berry, a recent survey of business owners who created a business plan determined they were twice as likely to grow their business and obtain funding or capital investment. That’s huge!
2,877 people completed the survey. Of those, 995 had completed a plan.
1,556 of the 2,877 had not yet completed their plan.
