a) Brief description of the business, including how long it has existed, geographical areas in which it operates, and the products/services it provides.

d) Key factors you think could pose the biggest challenge to the future success of this unique small business (e.g., existing or future competitors, market trends, customer preferences, economic conditions, etc.) Be sure to explain why you think those factors are so important.

Don't forget to attach documentation that identifies where you found the information about the small business you selected.
