Starting A Sewing Business? – A Sewing Business Plan is A Must
When starting a sewing business, a sewing business plan is key…. but first.
When contemplating starting a sewing business, first ask yourself if you have the personality to run a business, how much self-discipline do you have? There is a big difference between working for oneself and working for someone else. When we work for someone else, then the load of the business is shared by our fellow employees. However, when we work for ourselves, the load is all ours! Do you have the temperament to be all things to everyone?
Well if you do, then the next step is to create a plan.
What is a business plan?
According to Wikipedia, it is a formal statement of a set of business goals, why they are believed to be attainable, and most importantly, the plan for reaching those goals. The plan may also contain some background information about the business.
What should the plan include?
A typical plan should include:
• A cover page and table of contents
• An executive summary
• A description of the business
• An analysis of the business environment
• Background on the industry
• A competitive analysis
• A market analysis
• A marketing plan
• An operations plan
• A management summary
• A financial plan
• Some attachments and milestones
Why is a plan important?
A plan is key to getting financing for your business, such as a small business loan.
