A business plan will comprise a step-by-step plan for managing the business and developing it in the later stage. 

Apart from this, a plan will highlight your business goals and help keep you focused on the prime objectives. 


Once infrastructure is ready and business is established, you will have to connect with a cohort of vendors. Before going to vendors, you have to find out your business needs, then jot down resources that you would have to buy from suppliers. 

Probing the market and having first-hand information about the prices is crucial. You can later approach suppliers and ask for prices of various fabrics. Since you have knowledge of the market and know the worth of every material, you can easily shortlist suppliers that you seek to deal with.
