A business plan is a document that defines your business, your goals, and what you will do to achieve them. Your plan is both a roadmap to guide your business decisions, as well as your sales pitch to potential lenders, suppliers or investors. The Business Development Bank of Canada has a great summary of how to write a business plan and has a free business plan template on their website.
