Learn How to Write an Effective Business Plan

December is National Write a Business Plan Month

Thinking about starting your own business? You’re far from alone. In fact, according to the most recent data from the U.S. Census Bureau, an average of 4 million businesses have started every year over the past half decade — and each year has seen more businesses created than the year before. If you’re one of the millions considering turning your business dreams into a reality, you’ll need a business plan. December is National Write a Business Plan Month, and the SBA wants to help you get off on the right foot.
