A Business Plan is an important document for raising start-up capital, helping you to monitor progress and achieving your goals. When done correctly, it is a "living" document and tool that will help you manage the business beyond start-up. We will help you prepare a realistic plan that will document your vision, goals and strategy. No business should be started or maintained without a Plan. The key is an understanding of what should be included and how to capture the reader's interest in a concise but interesting way. Having a difficult time with the financial section? Your presenter will help you understand the three financial statements and how they relate to risk and performance. He will take the mystery out of forecasting.

Bonnie Copeland of SCORE presents this workshop.

Within a year she had started a new home-based business selling custom portraits of children and pets through mail order and specialty shops. Five years later Bonnie sold this business, then earned her MBA and moved to Southern California to work as Project Financial Analyst for Hughes Aircraft and Project Manager for Shell Oil. Later, as a Financial Manager for the Disney Corporation, she worked on the construction of Thunder Mountain Railroad and managed financial affairs for Disney University and all of the Disney-owned stores at the park and hotels. For over eleven years she was Finance Manager for Digital Equipment Corporation, working directly with the Vice President of Sales to manage the financial aspects of a 600-person sales force. She was executive partner to several aerospace and banking firms. Bonnie wrote the strategic plan for a $50 million new venture. She now works part-time doing marketing, accounting, and financial planning for a small family-owned firm.
