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.

Is your wine bar business plan for a cozy little spot, with a fireplace of course, where good friends meet to try out new wines and enjoy older vintages? I do hope so. That is just what my favorite wine bar is like.
When looking for financing for your wine, it isn't a matter of how much you know about wines, but how much you know about your customers. Dazzling your banker with photos of exotic wine labels won't do diddly.
What will work is if you can demonstrate a strong knowledge of your client base, both what they enjoy and what they will will buy. Getting folks to part with their money is no small task, and if you've got that skill in hand you are a rare wine steward indeed.
It truly saddens me when I see empty rooms where lovely wine bars used to be. You must demonstrate that you can do better.
Here is where your suppliers are worth their weight in gold. Vintners, especially those that distribute to bars, do a great deal of research on "the customer" -- far more than you could ever do. They are pretty possessive about this information because they don't want it falling into the hands of a competitor.
So use every negotiating skill you've got to get them to release just enough information so you can soundly identify just who your customers are.
Then pinpoint these customers on a map, demonstrating to your banker that you have positioned the wine bar correctly.
Voila! You are home free.
This is not the only item in your business plan, of course, but if you do have it you will be way ahead of anyone else.

Sal and Nettie Johanssen. ""Opening our own wine bar has been a dream for many years. We have the credentials, and the customers. Now we are going after the money. With luck, by this time next year we will be knee deep in corks."
Marie Lacey. "Well, we are tucked away in a corner of Colorado, but with our winter guests and our summer guests we should have a lively business in our little bistro. We will be adding a coffee bar too, so people can come in any hour of the day for friendly conversation and a sip or two. I wish your instructions had focused a bit more on how to combine two ideas into one business plan, but in the end it worked out fine."
Maya Lobley. "Super. Now that we've got the business plan under control, do you think you could get our wine list in order?"
Cheron Yariv (upstate New York). Wow, what a beautiful corner of the world to have a wine bar. it is going to be open before the snows set in, and the fireplace will be roaring. We are just so happy that the 7 Step Plan made it so uncomplicated for us."
