Financial planning in business can be overwhelming and stressful especially for those who may be first time business owners and are not exactly financial savvy. So in light of this subject I have put together a list of some thoughts to keep in mind when going through your small business financial planning.
Remember that you are presenting a LOT of very complex information and it should be your goal to make that information as digestible as possible. Use charts to display growth and make sure you are visually consistent with these (pick a color scheme!). Use nice, clean, well laid out tables to present historical data. Color code for readability and clarity. Have friends look it over and give you their feedback on your visual presentation.
