Preface to How to Write a Business Plan PDF Book


first-rate business plan and loan application. How to Write a Business Plan contains detailed forms and step-by-step instructions designed to help you prepare a well-thought-out, well-organized plan. It shows you how to apply proven financial and business planning techniques used by traditional lenders and investors to your benefit.

Coupled with your positive energy and will to succeed, this book shows you how to design a business plan and loan package you will be proud to show to the loan officer at your bank, the Small Business Administration, or your Uncle Harry.

But this book does more than just take you through the steps of writing a business plan. More importantly, the tools and techniques in this book help you decide if your business idea will work.

The same financial and analytical tools are necessary to convince potential lenders and investors that your business idea is sound can help you decide whether your idea is the right business for you.

After working with hundreds of business owners, I have observed an almost universal truth about business planning: Writing a plan is an internal journey through the mind of one person.

Even in partnerships and corporations, usually, one person has the vision and energy to take an idea and turn it into a business by writing a business plan.

For that reason, I have addressed this book to the business owner as a single individual rather than a husband and wife team, group, committee, partnership, or corporation.
