Free Help and Resources

Writing a Business Plan

Here you can find free Sample Business Plans and other helpful materials and content to help writing your own business plan.

If you want to try and research, write, format, and produce your Plan yourself, this section of the website is for you. Before you scroll on and look at links to our sample Plans, Workshops, podcasts, blogs, checklists, and templates, please do keep in mind that external objective experts may be the best way for you to go. But if you are confident, have the time and the expertise, we will support you, even if you get half way through your Business Plan and call us in for help at that late stage.

One of the reasons you might be on this page is because you don’t have a big budget. I get it. We’re here to help no matter what you have to spend. So even if you want to do the plan half yourself, and get us to do half of it, contact us now, before you start, because we might be able to save you even more money if you involve us earlier. Use the chat below to ask a question. Give us a call or complete the form for a call back. We would love to help.

Take a look at our free downloadable sample business plans. A series of DIY Business Plans/webinars or workshops are available in cities across Australia and New Zealand. Find the schedule. Listen to our range of podcasts or browse through our blogs.

Checklists

Sometimes you may have already written half of your plan and you’re wondering: “Is it any good, have I missed anything?”. These checklists help you understand what you need to do, and may have missed, without forcing you to fill in one of the long NEIS templates, or actually complete a whole template. They cut to the chase because we’re in your corner.
