Think you have a great idea for a business? The best way to find out whether your idea is feasible is to create a business plan.

It can be used to ground your ideas into workable actions and to help pitch your idea to financial institutions or potential investors when looking for funding. The standard business plan consists of a single document divided into several sections for distinct elements, such as a description of the organization, market research, competitive analysis, sales strategies, capital and labor requirements, and financial data. Your plan may include more or fewer sections to best represent your business.

In the absence of a plan, work still gets done on a day-to-day basis but often lacks a sense of purpose and priority.
