Beware the temptation to jump into business before you’ve done the proper planning. The plan may include details about the need for the organization’s services (a needs assessment) and about the likelihood that certain funding will be available (a feasibility study) or about changes to the organization’s technology or staffing that will be needed in order to successfully advance its mission.
It describes the products and services you will sell, the customers to whom you will sell them, the production, management, and marketing activities needed to produce your offerings, and the projected profit or loss that will result from your efforts.
When you are running a business from home, there is however other considerations that need a business plan to be drawn up. Banks will want to examine the business to determine if the project is viable before they commit to financing a loan program for the company.
