How to Set Up the Plan
Create a Word or Rich Text Format (RTF) document that is double-spaced, 12-point font. The final product does not have a page length but you are required to provide a title page and reference page.
Write clearly and concisely. The business plan must be typewritten and neatly packages in a form presentable to a financial institution or investor.
As some businesses are more complex, no specified number of pages is required. The key is to ensure that all critical portions of the plan are covered in sufficient detail to portray in-depth thought and effort. Some areas may not apply to all businesses.
Financial statements are important, and you are expected to provide pro forma balance sheets, income statements, break-even analyses, and cash flow projections.
The body of the paper should consist of a heading for each required element.
APA and writing is a main focus of this paper and should be executed with the utmost attention to detail. Even in this business plan, you will need to cite source information as you would need to be ready to explain from where information derived. Should you need help in any these areas of APA or writing, please refer to the APA module located in the content area of the course or ask the professor for guidance.
Use the grading rubric and instructions as guides. Be sure to cover all that is asked of you in the assignment and do so in a way that will guide the professor into giving a high grade. Finally, all work that you submit for this project should be your own. Remember your pledge to uphold academic integrity in all work that you prepare and submit.
