Budgeting Basics

The first rule of success in your small business is to start with a budget.

Funding Flourishes

Explore financing options. Do you have the money to start your bakery? Or do you need loan investors?

Pricing Pastries

Set competitive prices—factor in costs and market rates. Your pricing should set you apart from your competitors, not your customers.

Profit Projections

Forecast sales. There’s nothing wrong with steady and slow growth. Be realistic about revenue and expenses.

Financial Foresight

Plan for the future. If you have room to grow at the end of the day, you are going in the right direction. Save for expansion and emergencies.
