By skipping over time-consuming chapters on marketing, finance and other key business areas, you will jeopardize your business plan's overall effectiveness.
Although it will need to be incorporated into the flow of your plan, we strongly recommend considering a PEST (Political, Economic, Social & Technological) analysis for inclusion in your guardians and conservators company's business plan.

Talk to People Who Are Already in the Business
As part of your due diligence on opening a guardians and conservators business, it's essential that you speak with somebody who is already in the business. If you think your local competitors will give you advice, you're being overoptimistic. Why would they want to educate a future competitor?
