I would like to start a small barbering school. Can you help put me on the right track?

I have to write a business plan for my Business and i have no idea where to start. I'm looking to start a barber school. I would like to be able to have financial aid. Can anyone please help me with the business plan.

On Bplans.com, you can find over 500 sample plans for businesses of all kinds. They're a good place to start and can make it easier for you to develop your own plan because you’ve seen what somebody else has done with theirs.

Be aware, however - you may not find a plan that matches your business exactly. In reality, the only plan that will really work for you will be one that you develop yourself. A sample is useful as an example, not for the specific information it contains.

If you accept that idea, then you’ll find that Bplans has a lot that will apply. You will probably find some sample plans that are similar to your business type. For example, most retail stores have similar business plans. Even if the products described in the sample plan aren’t the same as yours, you'll still see examples of similar market analysis, product or service descriptions that are close, and even financial structures that you can adapt to fit your plan. You can gain a lot of ground like that, even though the business plan isn’t for a business exactly like yours.

If you are going to require financial aid, it would seem that you are not in a position to actually start your Barber School now.

I would suggest you get employment at an existing Barber shop or similar training facility so you can gain experience etc.

This will also give you more insight into the barbering business.
