I am having a difficult time putting together my business plans. There is so much involved, and it is not that I do not know what my objectives are or that I don't have a plan to achieve them, however conveying my message is taking way to much time. What steps should I take in hammering out the fine details of the plan? Should an attorney be able to handle everything I need, or will I need to consult with several different people. (A CPA? a local organization ) I don't know where to start. I am already conducting business but would like to make sure that I have many contingency plans and a solid foundation to build upon.

A good business planning company will be able to discuss with you your business ideas and aspirations and then turn them into a unique and compelling business plan.

yes...i am in the same boat---it truly is a fulfilling yet gut wrenching experience.

this strategy helped me. i just found an outline online and began writing it to suit my business. unfortunately, there is no way around creating a business plan, it is necessary as it will serve as your roadmap in the future and will also help keep you directed from scope-creep. i know that i am going to have to work on it for a minimum of 300 hours (that's what i heard the average is to write one)...but i am hoping at the end of it all, after getting colleagues to review it as well, it will be solid.

good luck! i know it's challenging but i figure there will be more challenges on the road ahead...just need to knock them down one at a time.

Im asuming this is to get a loan or grant from the state or for personal use?

If the main purpose for the business plan is to assist in obtaining commercial loan then it is better to let the same company that packages the loan to write a business plan. That way it would address the issues that need to be covered from the prospective of the loan.

This was posted on another thread somewhere and I was commending them as this was something I had not really done as I wa not going to have to borrow any money from the banks. I do have projections and a mission statement with my outlay and running costs in comparison to what I want to be earning to justify it. However, the government are giving grant to small stat ups here, so I will end up doing one I tihnk and take a punt at some grant money.

Another tip when you think you are done: present your business plan to friends and family. Start with the people who you know best to build confidence and go towards people who had no idea you wanted to start a business. If the last group of people understands what you are planning to do, your business plan is ready.

It might be a good idea to speak to your bank manager. They are often useful because they know all about getting finance for you business, can help arrange a loan and know about business plans. Another option is to go to any career advisory services in your area. They may not know hoe to do the business plan but they should be able to help you find someone who will.

I think it depends on how much you need written. If you are having a hard time to write it, you can hire someone who will write for you. These days there are so many freelance writers who have enough experience to work on your business plan. You can visit oDesk and see if you can get help.

me personally prefer the practical business plan, less theory, and more to practical steps on how to start the business

Its reality that practical and theory both are necessary for best business plans.

I agree with delusional, it's always good to share your plans with someone else. Try talking to someone that doesn't know you too well (as they might be slightly bias and not completely honest). You can also try to talk to a small business accountant, some of those companies also have business consultants that can give you advice about your business plan and growth. Just search for small business accounting business advice or something and loads of good ones will come up. Let me know if you want any specific tips of companies.

Hi,

If you already have the Idea,Objective and the Processes. (https://chesterfreelancer.wordpress.com/) My suggestion is try showing the drafts first to your trusted friends and ask them what they think about it. Maybe you just need some encouragement that your plan was already good to go but you think it's still lacking.

Hope this helps,

A marketable strategy is a composed archive that portrays exhaustively how a business—generally a startup—characterizes its targets and how it is to approach accomplishing its objectives. A field-tested strategy spreads out a composed guide for the firm from promoting, monetary, and operational outlooks.
