Plan Your Business

Before you get your license, find a location, or buy supplies or stock, it's a good idea to plan out your business, project how much you will need and how much you will make over the next few years. 

This can prevent you from making big mistakes, going into credit card debt or other difficult situations.  While most business owners are so excited about their idea, they do not want to wait to write a business plan, those who do find themselves to be much more successful, and encounter fewer suprises.  A little planning will go a long way. Check out one of the resources below to help you put together your business plan.
