    Hi all,

    I was wondering what tools you all used when starting to pull together your strategic, business and financial plans?

    Did any of you pay (or would you have paid) for help and what kind of service / outcome did you get?

    Thanks so much for any responses!!

    • Executive Summary. This represents the first impression that the reader will get from your plan.
    • Business Overview. After the executive summary, a business plan usually starts with a description of the industry where your business fits in.
    • Sales & Marketing Strategy.
    • Operations & Management.
    • Financial Information.

    You should first be determined to your plan, then research about the niche that you will pick. Create a page in social media for your brand. Have a strategic marketing plan and make it adaptable based on your audience, then explain why you care.
