This business plan is a generic model suitable for all types of businesses. However, you should modify it to suit your particular circumstances.

If you’re an entrepreneur looking for small business capital, you should take note of a type of self-reliant funding. This has become ever more prevalent in today’s economic environment, as bank loans and other sources of capital have become more difficult to obtain. This self-reliant funding allows you to invest your retirement funds in your own business – tax-deferred and penalty-free – and can help get you off to a good start by building equity and reducing the need for debt and cash flow – important factors for the long-term success of your business. An equally important benefit of this type of funding is the establishment of a qualified retirement plan for your business that can help you and your employees save for the future.
