Whether you are a new business or a company in business for several years, you need to plan. Fail to plan and you might as well plan to fail. Failure to prepare a written business plan is probably the leading reason 80% of all new businesses in the US fail in the first five years. Why else do you think banks and investors require a business plan before they’ll give you any money? This workshop will cover the basics you need to put your plan together from the questions to ask to get started to developing sales forecasts and break-even analysis. Presented by Jess McLamb, president of Roper Strategies.
