A business plan is a tool for gathering all the important information about running your business and your financial condition all in one place.
Most people think of business plans only when they are seeking financial assistance from outsiders.
However, a well-done plan will help you run your business on a day-to-day basis according to a preset, well thought out, and organized plan.
Even in times of unexpected crisis, your plan is a great tool, to keep you focused, on track, and mindful of the big picture you have set for your business.
In this section, the organization of your business will be detailed.
This is where you describe how many people work for the company.
In every organization, there is a certain amount of people and a certain type of people who are needed to carry out each job.
Be sure to provide detailed job descriptions and the qualifications required for each position.
Use this section to discuss training and advancement programs in your organization.
This major section of your plan will describe the market your business competes in and your strategy for competing.

The marketing information section of your plan is composed of a great number of sections. These sections are closely related in many ways. Be sure to carefully complete each subsection.
