A "living" business plan is an important management tool of every business owner. Know where you are going! Develop a realistic business plan as your roadmap to growth and financial viability. Learn step-by-step how to write a business plan that will document your vision, goals and tactics and then continue to work for you. Understand every aspect of your business and be able to monitor your progress. No business should be started or maintained without a plan. It takes time now, but avoids costly, perhaps disastrous, mistakes later.

Bonnie Copeland of SCORE presents this workshop. Bonnie started her own retail ski shop at the age of nineteen, built it in five years to $1 million in sales, and then sold it in favor of a career as a stay-at-home mom. 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.
