Just get Business Plan Pro, instead
This book might have helped SOMEONE write a business plan, but it contained only one idea of any interest for me. The authors mention that there is good software on the market to help first-time business plan writers, and they are absolutely correct! The book is a real let-down compared to Business Plan Pro. Your First Business Plan offers over half of its pages as a sample business plan for a company that is: a) NOT a start up (I think a great majority of people writing their FIRST business plan are concerned with start-up information), and
b) NOT a service business (many more businesses provide services than actual products)
So, all in all, this book didn't help me much other than the great advice to go out and buy a good business plan program. So, I pass this advice on to you - free of charge. No reason to pay book prices plus tax and shipping for it!
It gives you all you need to build an excelent Business Plan
I had 3 weeks build a business plan and I had never built one before. I had no idea where to start. - So I bought this book hoping it would help. Not only did it help, It mad possible to finish an excelent business plan in only two weeks, a business plan so professional no one believed it was my first one. - This book will take you step by step from the beginning of your BP to the end of it.
