A business plan is vital to the success of a business no matter its size or scope. That is why learning the basics of writing a business plan is so vital according to Chrystal Irons, a business development specialist with University of Missouri Extension.

University of Missouri Extension’s “The Basics of Writing a Business Plan” class, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., Friday, May 31 at the Taney County Extension Center, 122 Felkins Ave, Forsyth, will teach participants how to create this organizational roadmap.

“My goal with the class is to help participants understand the process of creating an effective business plan for lenders and management decision making,” said Irons. “During this workshop you’ll learn the importance of a business plan which can help you define your concept, evaluate the competition, determine risks, and estimate your costs.”

Program highlights include learning about: the executive summary, how to do market analysis including customer and competitor analysis, management and employees, the description of operations and location, and how to create the financial statements required by lenders.

This course is for new and existing business owners, and it will help participants identify the key components of a business plan, as well as detailing guidelines for style and appearance to help create a more professional look for your business plan.

The cost to attend the workshop is $39 and advanced registration is required. To receive additional information and to register, call (417) 546-4431.

This class is funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration. University of Missouri Extension programs focus on the high-priority needs of Missourians. Each county extension center, with oversight by locally elected and appointed citizens, is your local link to practical education on almost anything.
