If you want to write your own plan i would recommend Business Plan Pro from www.paloalto.co.uk it includes 500 sample Business Plans and is really easy to use I hope this he…lps FROM firstname.lastname@example.org We receive nearly a dozen business plans, weekly, and out of professional courtesy review each and every one. However, I must in all honesty say that those written using a software program, such as Business Plan Pro, are easily identified from those of much higher quality ... easily identified from those prepared with thought and substance. Just some of the shortcomings of Business Plan Pro include: 1. Lack of in-depth background on the management team, 2. Pro formas are lacking in detail, especially the cash flow statement, 3. Financial assumptions are often not easily located or are not even presented to the reviewer. When we review a business plan prepared by a software program, our review will take about 3 minutes whereas a business plan prepared with care and though will require upwards of 45 minutes to an hour. Needless to say, the business plan prepared with a software program becomes filed in the round file. On a separate note: if you're trying to raise capital in the U.S., your business plan is NOT the document you (legally) need. The Securities Act of 1933, which applies to public and private companies, states that any offer to sell securities must be registered with the SEC or meet/qualify for an exemption. Drop me a note if you have any questions: email@example.com.

When starting a business, a plan is VERY important. The reason is, it is risky when starting a business. If you take a few days to brainstorm, think and write down everything …from what you need to do, to your targets, to what to do in certain situations, you eliminate the chances of rushed decisions, that are not well thought out, that could effect the business negatively. If something happens, you can just pull out the plan, see what to do, predicted outcomes, and possibly what funding is available in some instances, you know it is a good choice because you have thought it out beforehand! Also in a business plan, you have your business rivals, you can use the state of your rivals when you started the business, to where you are now, all that is stated in the business plan. Bottom line is, don't take the risk of starting a business without a business plan.
