I am looking for an interactive FREE tool that I can use online to start writing my business plan and future client proposals. This tool will also need to provide resources and explanation of different parts of the business plan and customer proposals.
Answer: The US Small Business Administration has tons of great free resources for small business owners seeking financing. (The link takes you to their business plan page.) We also have collections of example proposals on this site and proposal development tutorial and a proposal template that takes the guess work out of developing your boilerplate proposal.
