One key component critical to your success is scoping the competition. A business plan consultant studies the area where you will be located quite thoroughly. For example, if you plan on setting up a coffee shop on Main Street, or within the vicinity, the small business consultants you consult with will inquire about the number of existing coffee shops and the services they provide.
Marketing - How is the product or service priced? How will it be distributed? How will it be promoted? Will it be promoted by the venture or an outside agency? What agency? How have you determined what amount to set aside for marketing? How have you determined product or service forecasts? Possible Data Sources: on-line searches; Amazon; local outlets; trade journals; industry attorneys & accountants; salespeople.

You may find that the easiest part is the actual writing of the plan. The real work comes in the data-gathering, which may take you a hundred hours or more, depending on what you already know or have researched. If your new venture is in an area where you've been working, you may already know about your customers, your suppliers, your marketing plan, your organizational structure, your financial and cash flow needs, equipment, inventory, and so on.
