Business Plan Handbooks
This annual Gale series of electronic books, from 1993 to present, is intended to help entrepreneurs who seek assistance on creating business plans for their small businesses. The resource mainly provides sample business plans from actual businesses in the manufacturing, retail and service industries. Names and addresses, and sometimes product names, have been changed to maintain confidentiality. Entries cover a wide range of business types, from bakeries to manufacturers of fiber optics or from electronic publishing to disposable medical supplies. Users can search by edition/date, keyword, title, subject, and other parameters. A help feature provides numerous tips on search optimization. Additional features include: a directory of the 750 Small Business Development Centers in the United States that provide support and advice; a glossary of small business terms; and a bibliography for further reading.
