How do I write a business plan?


If you go to SBA's home page sba.gov and select "Writing a Business Plan" under “Starting & Managing a Business” mega menu, you will find information on all aspects of writing a business plan. Under "SBA local resources" you can find local contacts such as the Service Corps of Retired Executives and the Small Business Development Center that provide FREE one-on-one counseling in the area of starting and expanding a small business. They can assist you by critiquing your business plan and your business ideas. You can locate a center by selecting "Local Resources" under sba.gov as well.
