Breaking Down the Business Plan is a 6-week program to help you develop a comprehensive business plan for your business.

The foundation of a successful business is a solid business plan. Committing your idea to paper in the form of a business plan not only increases your chances of obtaining financing but also of keeping your efforts in line with your strategy. You will work through all the major components of writing a business plan and emerge with your first draft in hand. And most importantly, you will have completed the first-and most difficult-step on the path to small business success.

Whether you require a business plan to secure funding, bring in a business partner, launch or grow your business, "Breaking Down the Business Plan" is the program for you. This 6-week program will utilize the specialized software program LivePlan, and the course includes a 3-month license for the software program. LivePlan software program assists entrepreneurs in creating thoughtful, thorough, and well-researched business plans that hold up to the scrutiny of loan applications and include the required sections for SBA loans.

This training course takes a deep dive into each section of the business plan with a concentration on financial projections, what are they, and how to create them. Topics covered will include: Strategy, scaling, target markets, competition, marketing & sales, operations & metrics, accounting, forecasting, financial statements, strategic planning, financing, pitching, and more.
