    I have used the search function and came up with few usefull results. I am wirting a business plan for my company now and want it to be as usefull as possible so i can stick to the plan that i draw out. If anyone would be kind enough to share hints or suggestions, or even their own plan it would be greatly appreciated.

    PS i wont copy anyones plan i just want some examples so i can compare strong points when making up my own.

    Glad to hear you are writing a business plan...

    I would go down to your local store or on-line and purchase a 'how-to' book on business plans...this will help a lot..imo.

    Also, you may get a better response to this thread if you post a specific question, or list what you have already have accomplished and ask for opinions or recommendations.

    Remember that business plans change as your goals change. They are never a finished product. All of that being said.....I have no business plan!

    tsk tsk.. if you fail to plan you plan to fail!... try going to a library. there should be some type of business reference section. there are references dedicated to the publication of business plans in various industries. I have found it very helpful to read business plans in other industries just so I can grasp the overall concepts of a business plan..

    my opinion= spend some time at the library.
