I want to make out a business plan, but would like to save the work of typing everything up pretty like you have done. Can I get a copy of your Business Plan file/spreadsheet/document so I can just enter in the information easily? Or, do you know of a nice simple one somewhere? We’ve really appreciated your books and have most of them.
Carol Topp, CPA says
Lana, Thanks for asking about business plans. In this blog post I mention a mini ebook, Creating a Business Plan, that you can download as a pdf for free. It’s a pdf, not a Word file. Sorry.
But that’s on purpose, so you take the time to physically write with a pen making you think carefully about what you are writing. Writing with a pen is a better way to get your creative juices flowing than typing on a computer screen.
