"I Have A Great Idea!"

Don't try to keep all your vital business data inside your head. Write it down in a business plan, or at least keep notes in a computer file or legal pad (and store it in a safe place). Potential investors will want to see a business plan anyway, and by writing out your idea, you'll have a clearer and more organized view of your new business.
