Avoid these common pitfalls

We've talked to enough people who've tried to copy and paste our sample plans into Word to know that what seems like a good idea most often turns ugly. It's not as easy as it seems, but if you really want to give it a try, here are important things to watch out for.

Avoid inaccurate Financials
Inaccurate financials

You'll have to have to do a lot of math. You can't just change numbers as you go, since the software's built-in formulas worked behind the scenes to generate them. Keep your calculator handy.

Avoid bad formatting
Bad formatting

Copy, paste, copy, paste... do it enough and you'll be lucky if what you end up with is in the right order and still makes sense. You don't want an amateurish business plan, so be careful!

Avoid lack of guidance
Lack of guidance

The sample plan doesn't really provide help or guidance. Be prepared to do a lot of research to get the same level of expert advice that was available to the writer of the sample in Business Plan Pro.
