I know, I know….it’s been so long since I added a post to the Essential Sources series that you forgot all about it, right? Well, here’s an excellent source to talk about to get back into the swing of things!
Business Plans Handbook is great for anyone trying to write their own business plan, marketing plan, or wants to find out how a particular kind of business is set up and how it makes money. It’s a collection of almost 300 actual real life business plans used by actual real life entrepreneurs that you can search by type of business. Interested in opening a consulting business? How about a janitorial services company? What about an online business? You can find business plans for all these kinds of companies in the Business Plans Handbook!
The best part about this title is that we have access to it not only as a printed reference book in the Business Center collection, but we also have it as an e-book, which means you can look at it right now over the Web! You don’t need an e-book reader, just a web browser with Adobe Acrobat Reader. All you have to do is to head over to the Business & Investment section of the Resource Tools on the library website, find the Business Plans Handbook, and click “In library” or “Home Access” depending on where you are.
