Another great resource for writing a business plan is your local Small Business Administration center. Most major cities have these types of small-business assistance resources, either in a brick-and-mortar office or online. These SBA websites almost always offer comprehensive resources for start-ups like a sample business plan, business plan development ideas, events, counseling and training services, and local resources. Check to see if your SBA website has free, online planning webinars. Even if you local chapter doesn't offer them, you can easily find a website in another region that does. These online seminars are typically self-paced, 30-minute long resources that help you understand the components of writing a business plan (which provide much more insight than a simple sample business plan), and may be offered in a variety of languages.
When it comes to buying a business, a good business plan is crucial. It's an invaluable guide to listing your objectives and aims in detail. It's a good source for information and analysis of your aims, targets, customers and prospects. All in all, it's a great resource to refer back to time and time again. By setting up the business plan, you will have a better chance of success because you have listed everything down in your head on paper.
