    First off, it will take way more than "a couple of weeks" if you want to get it very nice and neat.

    And try business-in-a-box, its a software, you can get a trail version, they have a nice sample of a general business plan.

    Just google it, there are some nice versions put out by universities and such that you can use as a guideline. You will have to do a lot of work to make it fit your company and needs, but the guideline is definitely out there. A business plan is too personal to your business specifically to just cut and paste your name here there. I good one will never fully be done.

    see if your area has a chamber of commerce because they are always willing to help out or they might point you in the wright direction.
