Create Your Business Plan

The Small Business Administration provides tips on developing a business plan to help you successfully run your small business.

Creating a plan will help you establish and pursue specific, measurable, attainable, reasonable and timely goals to help your business flourish, even when you relocate.

  • Executive summaries
  • Writing a company description
  • Market analysis
  • Organization and management
  • Service or product lines
  • Marketing and sales
  • Funding requests
  • Financial projections
  • Making your business plan stand out
