Writing A Business Plan


When it comes to writing a business plan you need to remember that it should focus on four separate elements of your business: description, marketing, finances and management. These will be the main focus of anyone who wants to learn about your business.

A business plan is also a good idea for someone who is just starting a business, as it gives them a way to formulate what their business will entail and where they want to go with it and how they will get there. A business plan should focus on the what, where, how, why, who and when questions and give supporting answers that will provide a good summary for an interested party. The business plan should be written in a sort of outline format with room to elaborate on any and all key points.

As with any well-written article or paper, you should revert back to your days in the English classroom in high school or college where your teacher drilled you about how to write term papers and what you needed to do. Sit down and write an outline of what you want your business plan to cover; include any goals that you have, whether they are one or three year goals or long-term agendas. Also, write several summaries of your business description, do not just go with the first one that you write and look good. The more times that you write it, you will find stuff to add and make it more interesting to a reader. And as with any good paper for your English teacher, include a cover page on the business plan that is followed by a page that states the purpose of your business.

Next, if you have a large business plan with multiple pages, you may want to include a table of contents to make it easier for the reader to find certain elements that pertain to his or her business. The main portion of the business plan can be broken into three separate categories, each with sub-categories: the business, financial data, and supporting documents. The business section will entail coverage over the description of the business, how it will be marketed and what the competition is. It can also include details about how the business will run, who will be involved with the management and the type of business insurance that has been purchased. The financial data section will cover all the details that involve the finances of the business.

This can be items such as loan or credit applications, profit and loss statements, equipment and supply lists, the capital that has been invested in the business and the cash flow of the business. This section will also detail the income or loss per month or quarter. The supporting documents section will be where you can attach documents that correlate to the first two sections such as tax statements, copies of lease or loan agreements and resumes of managers and workers. A business plan is not something that can be quickly done.

A lot of thought needs to be put into making the business plan as sound as possible. It should also cover all aspects of the business, from the business description and management to the financial and long-term goals of the business. A business plan can also act as a guide for new businesses by detailing goals and achievements to work towards.
