Great website bplans.com. Will delve into it some more today and see what they have. I was about to say shamefully it took me 2 - 3 months to write my business plan the 1st time around. I started it and went to London for 5 weeks in the midst of writing it and came back to finish it.
To be honest, my 1st business plan never felt complete to me. It is really a road map but along that road many things changed for my business in the 1st few months and years. Writing this plan for expansion this time around is different because I have been in the industry for 3 yrs now and I have more experience than when I started off. Imagine writing a plan for a start-up and you are now learning about the industry, far less barely stepped into it. It was hard. Hence, the 2 - 3 months spent on it.
I had a lot of uncertainty writing the 1st plan due to limited availability of statistics on the local market. All our data is out-dated and backed up by a 3yr log. If I go now, I will get info for 2009 which is absolutely worthless to my business. So I am relying on all the good info I know about the market and industry based on real-life experiences.
