    1. a.      To start will make a business plan which contains objectives of business and the ways to achieve the plan.
    2. b.      The objectives to start my business will therefore be:-

(1)    To inform and attract the customers, will give a suitable name to business i.,e “School Pick and Drop Service”

(2)    Depending on availability of capital whether owned or borrowed, try to start business with  single bus (2nd hand) thus economizing on cost and getting high profit rate.

(3)    With the passage of time and increase in profit, more buses will be arranged.

(4)    Try to arrange reliable, efficient and cheap transportation

(5)    Arrange labour i.e, hiring driver / conductor on cheap wages

(6)    Besides the cost / profit factor, will ensure good will and good ethic to get sympathies of customers (school kids)

(3)    It does not require any complicated legal provision like registration thus saving in legal expenses and taxes

(4)    One man (owner) can singly operate and get entire profit as well as loss.

(5)    Single owner is the sole master, therefore has full freedom of action

(6)    Owner can have direct relationship with customer

(7)    Will give personal satisfaction to owner being operated by himself

(8)    Will help giving employment to locals i.e, social benefits

  1. 3.    Promotional Activities
