  • BUSINESS PLAN DEVELOPMENT

    November 15, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
    Placer Business Resource Center 1000 Sunset Blvd Suite 105, Rocklin CA 95765

    Have you heard the saying, “Businesses don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan?” It’s true – whether you are just starting out or are growing your business -- having a well thought-out, written business plan can help you stay on track for success. A business plan can help you get organized, support an application for a loan, and serve as a roadmap to take your business in the right direction.
    Although business plans generally follow a generic outline, no two plans are exactly alike. Your plan would include key success factors for your specific industry. And you would write your plan for a specific audience: a plan written as an internal document to guide your day-to-day operations would be different from one developed for a banker or an investor.
