Size your business plan to fit your business. Remember that your business plan should be only as big as what you need to run your business.
A business plan is a formal statement of business goals, reasons they are attainable, and plans for reaching them. It may also contain background information about the organization or team attempting to reach those goals.
Taking the time out of your business to plan will give you a sense of control about the future of your business and pay off in the long run! Business planning can seem overwhelming and time-consuming, but many successful businesses look at it as an opportunity.
Your business plan should present what a banker or venture capitalist expects to see, in the order they expect to see it in. Following a standard business plan outline will keep you on track, and save you from botching your best chance at getting your business funded.
