The first step in creating a business plan is to develop a mission statement for your organization. From there, it's time to initiate the hard work involved with writing the rest of your diamonds industrial company's business plan.

On a percentage basis, more entrepreneurs intend to enter diamonds industrial business ownership through a startup than through a business purchase. Yet diamonds industrial business startups aren't easy - many fail within the first year.
There are a lot of factors that need to be considered in buying vs. starting a business. Although startup owners may have greater control over the shape and scope of their companies, they lack the advantage of a proven business model. Along the same lines, it can take years for a startup company to achieve brand recognition while an existing business may already be a trusted name in your target market.
