Executive Summary : This is basically an introduction where you can summarise the other sections of the report and give a very basic outline of what the proposed business is about.
Goals : Set out some growth targets and other goals over the short and medium terms. Goals for a catering service could be the number clients, the number of events, total revenue or average profit margins on events. Refer to your business plan regularly and push yourself to keep up with the goals that you set.
Competitive Analysis : The competitive analysis is a great way to determine the strengths and weaknesses of the competitors in the same market. This will allow you to create strategies to give you an advantage. Any potential threats can be recorded which will help to create early strategies to prevent any weaknesses that can be exploited.
Finally, a business plan should be error - free. This is important because your business plan defines who you are as a business person. If it turned out sloppy, then that does not speak too highly of you.
