Assignment A8

Unread post by LimeGlitterPuca »

The Executive Summary for your Business Plan.
Did anyone do this?
I know it is an optional assignment and I half considered just skipping right over it. However, since I'm not sure just where I'm going to take this once I'm done with the course, I figured as much help as possible would be good and I really ought to include the Summary.
However, I'm not exactly sure how to structure and put it together, what to include and how to go about explaining what I'm going to do.
So if there is anyone that completed and submitted this assignment, I would appreciate some tips and advice so much!

I know what you mean, I've got a general idea typed out, but am not sure I included everything that is supposed to be in there. I might work on it some more and then just submit it the way it is and see what happens. Personally I think it would have been nice if they gave us a general example of what one looks like, but oh well!
Since it's optional I am assuming it doesn't affect grade outcome, so even if I didn't understand it correctly I'm hoping it doesn't affect the grade.

Good luck, would love to hear if you end up submitting it and how you did. :)

Way to go on your grade!!! :)

So you included pricing and business names in your summary?
I haven't put any names in because I wasn't sure if we were supposed to. Now I'm wondering if my summary is more like an outline . . . . what did you mean who you should work with?

I was stuck on this assignment for a good two weeks. Finally, I just cleared my mind, sat down, re-read what should be in it, and it all just kind of flowed. I included what kind of market was out there, what I would use funding for, my goals as a company, what my management structure is (sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, etc.).
I got an A+ on Unit A, so I must have done something right. :)
