How to Start Your Own Business Tutorial for Budding Entrepreneurs
Expert Advice, Strategies, Tips, and Tools to Assist You in the Development and Launching of Your Own New Business — a Free Tutorial
This tutorial is all about empowering the entrepreneur inside you and helping you develop a successful business plan that enables you to start your business.
Business planning is a lot like a balanced diet. Everyone can agree on the importance and value of developing and maintaining a business plan, but not everyone feels they have the time or expertise to do it. This tutorial will help the novice learn the basics of creating a business plan while also providing tips to those professionals who have written a business plan but want to revise it or take it to the next level.
The tutorial includes expert strategies, advice, tips, tools, and resources that will help make planning/writing/revising your business plan a positive and rewarding experience.
Where to begin? Business planning is kind of a lock-step process, and we suggest using the tutorial in the order we present it. Follow this link to a map of the tutorial, or simply use the right arrow below to begin the tutorial.
