Is there a real need to write a Business Summary???

I’ve heard of a business plan but not a summary. Are they the same thing?

not really sure think one is just longer then the other. Been reading how to books, on starting a new business. Just wanting to be legal when I start up in Jan. 2014

Summary, to me, seems like looking back upon the past. Plan means looking toward the future.

You are a little tongue tied with the verbage, man.:slight_smile:

The [I]Executive Summary[/I] is [U]PART[/U] of the [I]Business Plan[/I].
(typically the FIRST part, actually)

It’s exactly as it sounds… a summary.
So here’s the trick- it should be written LAST.

Think of it as a prologue, set-up, or introduction
telling the reader what they are about to read.
(You fill in the details in the next/following parts.)

"Short and to the point"
For what it’s worth, mine in less than 1 page long.

Do they have SCORE in your area? They do free consulting.

Business History
I have been employed by a national franchise with in the industry and quickly became the lead cleaner, crew leader, and new hire trainer. I made glass master with in that company by cleaning over $350,000 worth of glass. People watched me clean and would ask if I own the company, because of the passion I have and pride I took in the job I was doing.

need to look up online

fun fun a lot to do still and after I get name right I’ll post my logo :slight_smile:

Good for you, for sharing this!!
(I just wondered how things were coming)

I think the best business plan is the one written in pencil… never stop re-writing it.

Looks like you got the juices flowing.

“Type of company” needs to be more thorough, “service based, form of ownership, etc…”

You mention that you need to look up Business Goals.
But actually, you already have a start in your Business Background.
(which reads more like a Philosophy, but…)
Now you just need to start visualizing the framework to [B]meet them![/B]:slight_smile:

Getting all my ideas from my head down on paper really helped me a lot.
