A business proposal is a request by a business or individual to complete a specific job or project, to supply a service: or in some instances to be the vendor of a certain product. It is not a business plan. While you might use your business plan to help inform your business proposal when you are writing it, these documents are not one and the same. In its simplest form, a business plan is a guide for your business, a roadmap that outlines goals and details how you plan to achieve those goals. It is used to keep you on track (internal use) and to support any applications you might make when seeking investors, or when applying for commercial loans (external use). A business proposal on the other hand is used to try to attract and acquire business. It pitches your business, product, or service to a potential client, vendor, or supplier. A client, vendor, or supplier might also request a business proposal from you when trying to evaluate whether or not you are someone they want to work with, or whether or not you can provide the services or products they require. Write a good proposal and you might snag business: write a poor one, and you may lose out, even if you are offering the best service out there.
A freelance invoice is often different from the standard time-and-materials invoice format because of how charges are itemized. Freelancers such as artists or programmers who charge by the project can use any general service invoice or template but for others, the service invoice format falls short. That is because freelancers often bill in unique ways. The way a sole proprietor or sole trader freelancer bids and then charges for work will vary depending on the work that he or she does. Other than photography, most kinds of freelance changes will be covered by our free invoice templates at the bottom of this page.
Every project manager and team member knows there are a slew of forms used throughout the life cycle of a project-that is, if the project is managed right. From the beginning scope statement to the final closing documents, forms are a big part of effective project management. They act as a method to keep everyone involved, literally, on the same page.

Once you have a defined scope statement and or project charter, agreed upon by project stakeholders and team members, alike, you are ready to begin building your WBS. And, while that often seems like a simple task on the surface, building a successful work breakdown structure is an art form. Ann Gordon has penned a great three-part series aptly titled, What is a Work Breakdown Structure?. Throughout this article, Ann offers of a plethora of examples and how-to tips for building your own WBS. After you have built your WBS, what do you do with it? The answer for many project managers often points to tracking your WBS using a Gantt Chart. Toward that end, we have a couple of targeted articles.
