    Info:

    A minimum of 5 people is required to hold the class!

    Why do you need a business plan? It may seem silly to ask yourself “What business am I really in,” but some entrepreneurs/business owners have gone broke because they never answered that question. One watch store owner realized that most of his time was spent repairing watches while most of his money was spent selling them. He finally decided he was in the watch repair business and discontinued the sales operations. His profit improved dramatically.

    A business plan precisely defines your business, identifies your goals, and serves as your firm’s resume. It helps you allocate resources properly, handle unforeseen complications, and make the right decisions. It is crucial to have a business plan if you plan to obtain financing, but it also can inform your sales personnel, suppliers and others about your operations and goals. It also helps answer the question “What business am I in?”

    This workshop will help you create a business plan to successfully launch or refine your business operations.
