This is going to be a short (or long) post...I guess it depends how you look at it. I am posting the business plan. If you take the time to read the Business Plan...I guess that would make it a long post.
This is our first draft. I have gotten some feedback from one of my friends but I have not even had time to look at it. I think we are going to take this year (2017) to perfect the Plan.
I have sent the plan to the Small Farms U of I Extension personnel but they have not had time to get back to me.
I was at a meeting a couple of weeks ago and met someone from SCORE.
SCORE Spokane volunteers are real-world professionals with time- tested knowledge who donate thousands of hours to help small businesses like yours succeed. Counselors are experts in such areas as accounting, finance, marketing, technology, management and business plan preparation.
Services offered by SCORE include:
Free face-to-face business counseling/mentoring -- by appointment only
He said I could send him the Business Plan and they would assign a Counselor to work with me through all the details of getting a business started and it's all free! So, I am going to wait and get feedback from the Small Farms Coordinator and then make those changes and send to SCORE.
Here it is: Business Plan
Constructive criticism is appreciated...happy reading!
