Starting a Business

Starting your own business can be exhilarating and exhausting. It all starts with an idea, then a business plan. The business plan has no set rules, format, length, or content. It is meant to be your guide to success. Business plans vary depending on the complexity of the industry and the market it will serve. Developing a business plan will help you analyze your idea to see if it is feasible and provide you with a path to follow for success. Along with a business plan, you will need a Startup Cost Sheet, Balance Sheet, Profit and Loss Statement, and Cash Flow. The financials are interactive and will be a big help. We have also included some links to help with the legal and tax paperwork needed.
