 It is time to put it all together! This week, you will combine all components of your business plan together into one document, and develop an executive summary to place at the beginning of your plan. Be sure the components of your plan have been edited to reflect your instructor’s feedback, so you submit a final draft of each as opposed to just submitting the same version that was already submitted previously. Cite six (6) peer-reviewed articles not including your textbook.

In this last development week of your business plan, you will identify major milestones for your new venture as well as projections of financial performance. These two elements go hand in hand, as these represent how committed and serious you are to achieving success. 
Your major milestones over the course of five years can be listed as bullet points, with key dates identified for each (1 page in Word)
Then, using Microsoft Excel, project the financial performance in relation to the major milestones you have identified. You will need to project revenues, expenses, operating profit, income, expenses, cash flows, capital investments, and related startup costs. It is important to ensure that these projections are in alignment with your business model and related strategies to compete as a new business venture. Ensure that you develop meaningful financial projections and offer different approaches for financing your new venture and for analyzing costs, expenses, and profits. You will want to carefully review Chapter 9 to consider all aspects of projecting financial performance (2 to 4 pages in Excel).

Chapter 5 Fane Case Assignment
This assignment is an opportunity to practice the IRAC method of case analysis. First, review the IRAC method if you need a refresher. 
Read the fact pattern below, then answer the questions that follow.
Scott Fane was a CPA licensed to practice in New Jersey and Florida. He built his New Jersey practice by making unsolicited phone calls to executives. Fane was not saying anything false or misleading but was just trying to secure business. When he moved to Florida, the Board of Accountancy there prohibited him (and all CPAs) from personally soliciting new business. Fane sued arguing the regulation by the government agency violated his first amendment rights.
What is the issue in this case? What question does the court need to answer to resolve the case?
What is the rule of law in this case? Remember, the rule of law is the legal principle the court relies upon to resolve the issue.
You are now the judge in this case. Read the arguments below and analyze the case.
Argument for Fane: The Florida regulation violates the First Amendment, which protects commercial speech. Fane was not saying anything false or misleading but was just trying to secure business. This is an unreasonable regulation, designed to keep newcomers out of the marketplace and maintain steady business and high prices for established CPAs.
Argument for the Florida Board of Accountancy: Commercial speech deserves—and gets—a lower level of protection than other speech. This regulation is a reasonable method of ensuring that the level of CPA work in our state remains high. CPAs who personally solicit clients are obviously in need of business. They are more likely to bend legal and ethical rules to obtain clients and keep them happy and will lower the standards throughout the state. This law is narrowly tailored to support this interest.
Write your case analysis. (You are going to apply the rule of law to the facts in this case with the goal of coming to an answer to the issue, and a conclusion to the case).
What is your conclusion? How do you rule your Honor?

The information should come from both news sources and journal articles. You should have at least one news article and one scholarly journal article for this assignment, but that would be the minimum. Maximum points will be awarded to those with more than one of each.
To find scholarly journal articles, use Google and type in your topic and then “scholarly articles” and that should work.
STEP 3: Using the information you gathered in Steps 1 and 2, answer the following questions in a two-to-four-page paper (double-spaced).
1. Other than a grade, what is your goal in completing this project?
2. Summarize the bill in 1-2 paragraphs.
3. Who are the sponsors and co-sponsors of the bill?
4. What is the status of the bill?
5.  What is the problem that this bill is attempting to resolve?
6. Describe how those in favor of the bill explain how the bill, if passed, would resolve the problem in your topic.
7. Describe how those opposed to the bill explain how the bill, if passed, would not resolve the problem in your issue.
8. What are the unintended consequences that could occur if this bill is not passed?
9. What are the unintended consequences that could occur if this bill is passed?
Questions 8-11 can be written all together in one answer. LABEL THE ANSWER 8-11.
STEP 4: Finally, identify the affected stakeholders. Stakeholders are all the persons (or communities, or the Earth) affected by the issue. See this article for more information about stakeholders and then answer the following questions (Write about this in the third page of your paper):
