Today's Top TipOnline business plan scams are alive and doing very well. There's even a new wrinkle: the "crowd funding". Trust me, no one makes money but the promoters in this scheme.
Stop by any day for a new Top Tip of the Day
What will you find in the 7 Step Business Plan? We are glad you asked.
Business plans are both very consistent, and very unique. They are consistent because they each contain a certain amount of specific information, such as
Each business plan is also unique. It represents YOUR business, and your business alone. There is just no way that two restaurants, for example, can use the same "fill in the blank" template. One restaurant could be a local hot dog stand, while another might be a waterfront high end dining establishment. The amount of information needed for each, and the presentation for each, varies considerably. That holds true for any industry. Each business is unique.
The 7 Step Business Plan series is designed to help you pull together the information you need for YOUR BUSINESS, into a format that works for funding YOUR BUSINESS.
A pdf file. Your Workbook . (The workbook for a "grrreat" business plan is pictured, but your workbook will be for your business.)
I hesitate to call it an "instruction book", but it is stuffed with all the information you need to create a dynamic business plan for your business, rapidly and easily. 90+ pages. One section is devoted to information specifically on YOUR INDUSTRY.
A Microsoft Word file. Your Template. This is the actual template that you will use for the text of your business plan.
You can change it, switch it, mess it up, or use it just as it is. Use all the formatting tools in MS Word that you already know.
A Microsoft Excel file. Your Financials. This is the actual set of financial summaries that you will use in your business plan. You can add, delete, mess it up -- or format it -- with all the tools in MS Excel.
For basic plans, use these actual worksheets. For more complex plans, draft your numbers and take them to an accountant.
USE PROGRAMS YOU ALREADY KNOW! Don't worry about learning any new programs for your business plan. You will use the programs that you already use every day: MS Word and MS Excel. The templates, both for the text and for the financials, are set up so that all you have to do is enter your personal information.
EASY FORMATTING! Your headers and text and columns are all set up for your business plan. The formatting flows right in. Easy peasy. Your business plan for your business will look very professional, very complete. (It is also easy to change, if you would prefer changing it.)
EASY FINANCIALS! The Excel template is set up so that all you do is enter the data for your basic business plan. All columns are added automatically. It even creates charts automatically! If you have accounting skills, go ahead and stretch your wings. Or, get all the background figures together so that your accountant can whip the financials together in no time. Either way, your basic business plan benefits.
EASY TO FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS. The ebook that you will receive takes you step by step through building your basic business plan. There just isn't an easier way to do it.
