Business Plans

If you are thinking about starting a business, we strongly recommend making a business plan! Many small businesses fail in the first 1 - 5 years, but research suggests that good planning can double the chances of your business succeeding and substantially increase the rate of growth. A good business plan can help you decide if there is a market for your product or if you are financially secure enough to get started. They are also good tools to monitor your growth and can help guide you as you make additions or alterations to your business down the road.
We would love to work on a business plan with you, or, here are a few links to sources and templates to help get you started.
