Kathleen Said:

are their any loans for the construction of a small business?

We Answered:

Of course you can. No lender will talk to you unless you provide them with a valid business plan. Go to http://www.sba.gov , http://www.score.org or http://www.bplan.com for sample business plans and instructions on how to write a business plan.

Then, go to http://www.score.org/ and in the upper left hand corner, enter your zip code. On the next screen, you will get information on the nearest SCORE chapter. Call them and arrange for a free meeting with a SCORE counselor to review your business plan and discuss various loan options available to you.

SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to entrepreneur education and the formation, growth and success of small business nationwide. SCORE is a resource partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).

SCORE has 389 chapters in locations throughout the United States and its territories, with 10,500 volunteers nationwide. Both working and retired executives and business owners donate time and expertise as business counselors.

Cathy Said:

i am trying to start a storage unit and car wash business how could i go about it to get started?

We Answered:

The first thing to do is to learn all you can about the self storage business. Do a research on the business, including the costs and investments it entails, operational considerations and the factors that make a self storage business successful. Parallel with getting industry information, you also need to start looking at the size of the market for self storage in your planned location, number and services offered by competitors, permits and licenses, as well as other county/city requirements for this type of business including commercial zoning regulations.

You may want to start your research with the Self Storage Association at http://www.selfstorage.org . They have produced several must-read publications on the self storage industry that any would-be entrant in this field should read. These studies include Financial & Operational Characteristics of Self Storage Facilities; Self Storage Demand Study; The Best of The Self Storage Legal Network: Answers to the 75 Most Frequently Asked Legal Questions; among others. The prices of the publication may be a bit steep but it is always better to know more about the market before you enter it, especially for a business that will require significant initial outlay.

Another important resource is Inside Self Storage’s http://www.insideselfstorage.com publication called Inside Self Storage Factbook that is published on an annual basis. The Factbook contains information on wide ranking issues affecting the self storage business from construction, insurance, security and access, management, marketing, among others.

You may also want to check out the following books:

Market Analysis and Valuation of Self-Storage Facilities (Paperback) by Richard R. Correll http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0…
How to Invest in Self-Storage (Paperback) by Scott Duffy; RK Kliebenstein Book: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0…

I have also included links below to a sample business plan that you can study and even adapt, as well as an overview of the self storage business from a subsidiary of SBA.

Self Storage Industry: http://sbdcnet.utsa.edu/E-Newsletters/ne… Sample Business Plan: http://www.bplans.com/spv/3303/2.cfm Ministorage.com Messenger http://www.ministoragemessenger.com/asso…

If you are thinking of starting a car wash business, you need to consider the following factors to ensure greater profitability:

1. Location - you need to choose a location that will support the operations of your business, and it should be very visible

2. Type - what car wash operation are you planning to operate (self service car wash or in-bay automatic, which can either be friction automatics or touch free automatics)

3. Equipment - Unless the car wash business you are thinking of is the self service type, an automatic car wash business requires significant capital equipment

One good resource I found in the car wash business is Hill and Foss Car Wash Business Systems. They have an FAQ section that answers some of the common questions in starting a car wash business. http://www.hillandfoss.com/faq.html

It is hard to categorically say how much income you can expect to make from a car wash business. The rule of thumb is 15-20% return on investment on a 5-7 year window. It really depends on the type of car wash you decide on and the services you will offer.

where cant i find a free sample business plan for a shooting range?

We Answered:

There are no free sample business plans for a shooting range.

The National Association of Shooting Ranges, of The National Shooting Sports Foundation, has a shooting range business plan, but it is sold for $15 for non members and $7.50 for members. I think this is a very reasonable price. The business plan is described as

HOW TO WRITE A SHOOTING RANGE BUSINESS PLAN
Business plans are an important management tool for all shootingranges, not just ranges looking to secure financing. Focuses on each ofthe four parts that make up the successful business plan: business description, marketing plan, management plan and financial plan. Asks questions,offers tips and provides worksheets to help the reader organize thoughts
http://www.rangeinfo.org/PDF/catalog.pdf

The National Rifle Association has a NRA Range Development & Operations Conference, which is designed to help you develop your business plan and range. The price is steep at $395, but it covers various topics that I think you are a prospective owner of a shooting range should learn, including your master plan, your business plan, construction materials, concern on lead, cost analysis, maintenance, environmental concerns, etc. You can find information on the conference here http://www.nrahq.org/shootingrange/range…

what does it take to open a business/ Bar? about how much money would it take and what license' would I need?

We Answered:

The first step is to research about the business. Find out what the bars in the area offer, and think of ways you can exceed their offerings. Talk to the owners, check with them - some can be very helpful.

Here are some articles on how to start a nightclub or bar business:
