What is a Business Without a Plan? Eventually, just an idea. In our final session we will explore the various types and formats for developing your business plan. A business without a plan is just a hobby. The business plan forms the backbone of your business and along with serving as a roadmap, provides a method for measuring the success of the business at chosen intervals. Along with discussing the different plans, several nagging questions will be addressed. What constitutes a formal business plan, and do I need one? How will I measure the success of my business? If I need support, financial or otherwise, who can I turn to? What are some of the different ways to finance a business? As in previous sessions, attendees will have the ability to interact with each other and with the certified SCORE mentor facilitating the session.
