Help with business plan please!

Ok.....shout out to anyone who has put a business plan together to start a garage gym. I am well into my plan but have hit a roadblock with the cash flow statement. I am completely blanking. I roughly put together a 12 month sales forecast a few weeks ago, but I was just pulling numbers out of my A** and have no idea. I have scoured the threads and most of them dealing with business plans are older threads and the members are no longer active.

I am in Metro St. Louis, so the midwest and will only be starting "part-time" out of my garage. I am asking for anyone willing to send me samples of their cash flow statements to use as a reference. I realize your numbers will be completely different than mine, but again I'm at a loss here as to how to even start projecting my cash flow.

After my initial start-up costs and equipment purchases, I will have very low overhead (basically just insurance) obviously since I will be in my garage.

Any help at all is greatly appreciated.

If anyone is gracious enough to email me a copy of your cash flow statement for reference, please send to mabrown77@gmail.com.

Thanks!!

I got this off the threads here somewhere. I think I got it from the Again Faster guys. Fill in the blanks as needed.

Hi; I'll be posting our full business plan to dontbuyads.com today (2010 version.) But the Affiliate Cash Flow Calc that Bryan posted is the BEST way to start (it's from Jon Gilson.)

Re: Help with business plan please!

Thanks guys! I appreciate the help. I pretty much have the plan put together. I still am struggling with a few of the financial docs, mainly because of all the assumptions to be made with a start up, but I'm on my way.

Thanks again!

Thanks for starting this discussion and for the resources posted. I'm looking forward to the resultant affiliate statistics that will (hopefully!) come out of the interview between Coach and Fast Company magazine.

Re: Help with business plan please!

Email me... The BIZ, which I run, has been working with affiliates since 2006. We've gathered data from the 400 affiliates we've worked with.

To reach me: john@thebizraiseyourgame.com

I cannot promise a prompt response since the new site is launching this week.

Let me know what data you specifically need to know.
