Business Plan Samples

Help Fuel Your Imagination

Business plan samples can help over come "writers block" when creating your business plan. To that end we are providing some resources that can help you get started with your business plan.

It is important that your business plan be crafted in your words and specific to your business. Don't fall into the trap of taking a short cut and trying to copy or adapt a business plan from some other business - to your business.

As you review these sample plans, be aware that your business plan does not have to be perfect or complex - it is a blueprint that enables you, and people who review your business plan, to better understand your vision for your business.

We have found that sometimes viewing a sample can help you to picture what your plan might look like. And this visualizing process can help you overcome writer's block and get your creative juices flowing.

So we have found some excellent sources with samples for a wide variety of businesses, industries and audiences. But a caveat: this is not an exhaustive list of sample plans, it represents only a few sources. However, it has more than enough material to help even the most severe case of writer's block.
