The business plan should have complete detail of business concept (products/services offered), target segment, goals, competitor analysis, unique selling proposition, team member details, marketing plan, revenue model and projected earnings.

Every businessman should learn the basics of accounting to manage their financial records error-free. By regularly reviewing financial records, you will be able to make perfect forecasting of your business and develop a pro-active financial plan, which enables you to borrow wisely.
