Step 12: Proofread your work

After all the work you've invested, make sure you don't shoot yourself in the foot with bad spelling or grammar. And double-check your numbers one last time. A single typo could throw off a whole spreadsheet.

The final version should be printed on 8.5 by 11-inch paper, with single-spaced, 12-point, professional-looking type. Leave fairly wide margins so investors can take notes. The overall look should be inexpensive (otherwise you may seem like a spendthrift) yet professional.

Once you get funding and start to achieve your goals, you'll realize all the effort you put into your plan was well worth it. There's nothing like making your dreams into reality.
