Start at the library and get several books on how to write business plans to read through. The books would be a good place to help you get you ideas organized and get started in the right direction

The business section at the library is as good a spot as any to start your research, as Mr. Minney points out. There are also several software packages you can find at your local big box computer store or office supply store which will provide format and suggestions. JD

BY FAR the easiest way to write a business plan is to buy business plan software. That's what I did a few years back and not only was I impressed with how it turned out, so was the BANKER! I even took it to Kinko's and had it bound! He commented that he had never seen such a thorough job and if I would run a business the same way I would be very successfull - I got my loan ($75,000).

Grasshog...

Makes it alot easier, "Biz-Plan" works great and I'm sure others while do as good. Saves an enormous amount of time, with great results.
