Instead, take advantage of our sample plans to avoid writers block. Feel free to copy words, phrasing, and the general structure of a plan to start your own. Also, as you read through several plans, you might find ideas for your business that you hadnt considered. Use the sample plans for inspiration and ideas. Staring at a blank page can be the worst part of writing a business plan. In fact, thats probably the reason thats preventing you from getting started right now.
If youre like most small business owners, youve never had to create a business plan before. In fact, you may have never even seen a formal business plan document let alone had to put one together. But, building your own plan isnt as simple as just cutting and pasting from someone elses plan. In fact, if you do that, you will be doing yourself (and your business!) a huge disservice. Use our plans for inspiration and ideas, borrow phrasing when it makes sense, and just get going! Write a business plan thats right for your business. As tempting as it is, dont just cut and paste from a sample plan. That would be a huge waste of all the time and effort you put into your strategy, budgets, and forecast. Instead, using your plan as a tool to grow your business can be one of the most powerful things you can do to grow your business.
