Business Plan & Financing

edited April 2008 in Startup Funding
I am in the beginning phases of business development for a Mens Salon/Barber Shop that I plan to open in Las Vegas, NV.
I have moved the the concept, mission statement, tasks, start up estimates, etc. from my head to paper.
However, I have never created a business plan or sought capital for a business venture.
I am doing research, but would greatly appreciate advice on both (business plans & obtaining start-up funds).

    Congratulations on putting your business idea on paper!  There are many  places that offer free samples of  business plans specific to your business - google it. Another great resource would be your local SCORE office -- they may even match you with a seasoned/retired professional who can personally assist you. Explore your options - Tim & Steve has offered some good tips.
    Follow through with your business - keep in mind some days will be better than others. Here`s wishing you great success!

    Best Health,
    Thank you for your help and input.
    I am a "google" maniac.
    When i searched that avenue, I came up with software for creating plans.
    They can be impressive, but i recall from my original SCORE meeting, that you have to be careful - like anything else - that you are not throwing your money at something without proven results. Which is what we are all after, right?
    I will take your advise.
    I thought i would tap this forum as well as work with SCORE and research the bookstores and libraries as well.
    Thanks again!

    Putting it on paper is a great start -Congratulations.
    As you move forward, remember - there are over 50 ways (combination of method and sources) to bring outside capital into a business. It`s often a matter of determining which one is "right" for you.
