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 business 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 business plan is a great tool, to keep you focused, on track, and mindful of the big picture you have set for your business.
