Business Plan Template

Hello – it’s good to see you here, because that means you’re serious about building a better business plan to make sure you get the financial and other support you need to build the business of your dreams.

I hope you found my “How to Build a Better Business Plan” book helpful.

This template has been designed so you can “follow along” with each chapter in the book, completing each section as you go.

You also have reminders in each section for the objectives you’re trying to hit and the key points you need to recover.

This template is in Word format to make it as easy as possible to alter to fit your own purposes. Add your own branding…your own style…your own graphics and customise the template for whatever you need.

Please note, this being the internet n’all, you’re responsible for making sure you download this information safely and use appropriate virus checker and firewall services. If you work in a corporate environment, there may be restrictions on the file formats you can download – please consult your IT department who will be able to advise.

Should you find it helpful, we also offer coaching support to help you build a business plan to get the support you need, with both one-off options and a comprehensive support package available.

You can explore the coaching support options here:

In the meantime, your Business Plan Template is available for download here. Use the heading and descriptors to create your own business plan, then remove the existing text and apply your own branding, and hey presto, you have your own customised business plan in your own personal style:

Preparing a business plan allows you to look at your business with fresh eyes…the way a professional investor or lender would, which means you get ahead of the game, making it more likely you’ll get the support you need to build the business of your dreams.

Whatever dreams and ambitions you have for your business, I wish you well.
