Writing a Business Plan

Writing a Business Plan

How can you create a simple business plan? Why do you need one? Should I review my current plan? Come on out for a casual presentation with plenty of time for questions and answers. Presented by Jerry Glenn, certified SCORE mentor.

__________________________

The importance of planning should never be overlooked. For a business to be successful and profitable, the owners and the managing directors must have a clear understanding of the firm's customers, strengths and competition. They must also have the foresight to plan for future expansion. Whether yours is a new business or an existing business in the process of expanding, money is often an issue. Taking time to create an extensive business plan provides you with insight into your business.
