    Only just seen this Vicky, sure it will be helpful to some :)

    However, I am a firm believer in not over complicating things from the outset. This is great for people opening a new B&M store, but for people opening an online business (eBay, Amazon, website etc), the only thing they need is a computer and an internet connection, and a start up fund to buy stock. Nothing more, nothing less, and it is something that I talk about in my eBook a lot as it can put a lot of people off starting their business.

    But great contribution Vicky ;)

    It would depend on whether you are just starting up as a casual/part time seller to make a secondary/passive income or if you are selling to make a living or at least contribute towards your living costs.

    I agree that start up costs will be small but if you are hoping to make a living from selling on-line then you at least need to know how many sales/how much revenue you need to generate before breaking even and also how many sales/revenue you need to generate to earn a living wage.

    Just a note :

    The formula at the end is wrong. I found this out after finding out my startup costs were $6,000 when i only had $500 one time and $3.75 monthly!

    it is actually: (C38*C35) + C37

    The task can seem overwhelming, but writing a business plan is an important step in helping your company launch, grow, and thrive. Business plans provide vision and a clear strategy. They’re also critical for businesses seeking funding. But where should you start, and what should you include?
