How to write a business plan by Mike P. McKeever (658.152 M 2018) and Business Plans Kit For Dummies by Steven Peterson (658.4012 P 2016) would be two good books to start with. Multi-volume Business Plans Handbook is available online via Gale eBooks, one of many library premium e-resources that can be accessed remotely with a library card. Also available in the reference section at some of the larger regional library branches is the Troy Almanac of Business and Industrial Financial Ratios. The City of Fairfax Regional Library has RMA Annual Statement Studies. Both books are used for finding industry ratios when formulating a business plan for a new company.
