Best Practices: Business Plans for Reading Improvement Instruction Businesses
Struggling to get the attention of lenders and investors? Maybe it's because you're lacking a high quality business plan.
The financial section of your business plan is especially relevant to funding concerns. The financial chapter of your business plan is one of the first places investors and lenders look, so it needs to contain forecasts and budgets that are rooted in business realities rather than your personal best case scenario.
As a result, we strongly recommend educating yourself in business plan financial basics before finalizing your business plan's financial chapter.
Review the Competition

Learn from Others Who Are Already In This Space
As part of your due diligence on opening a reading improvement instruction business, it's a smart move to speak with somebody who is already in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
But, a person who owns a reading improvement instruction business in a location that is not competitive to you may be more than happy to give you a few tips, once they realize that you are not going to directly compete with them in their community. In fact, they are often very willing to share startup advice with you. In my experience, you may have to call ten business owners in order to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.
The key question new becomes: how to find a reading improvement instruction business founder who is willing to advise you because you live in different cities?

Startup reading improvement instruction businesses carry a host of financial risks and concerns. Without an operational history, it's hard to predict how your startup will actually perform in the marketplace.
