Tips for Creating a Great Naturotherapists Company Business Plan
A business plan is the skeletal framework for your naturotherapists business's mission, goals and strategic vision.
Since lenders and investors will use your plan to gauge risk, it needs to contain industry-specific benchmarks and a detailed marketing plan.
Early in the process, it's worth your time to learn how to write the market analysis section of a business plan.

Studying the Market
