You have decided to open a cupcake bakery and move your home-based business into a storefront. Recently, you met with SBA National, a non-profit organization, that focuses on helping entrepreneurs start their business with funding and guidance. The non-profit also hosts a business pitch competition to anyone who is a client. One of the requirements of the SBA business pitch competition is that each participant must do a frequently asked questions (FAQ) document on the ethical standards that you will use in the operating procedures for your business.


Develop an ethical standards FAQ document that addresses the following:

  • Include a total of 8 to 12 FAQs in your document.
  • What is your business position on ethics?
  • How will your business use ethics in decision-making?
  • What are your policies and procedures on ethics in the workplace?
  • How does ethics shape your short and long-term business planning?
  • Make sure to use audience-specific language and professional tone throughout the document.
  • Clear organization, APA formatting for the references list, and proper grammar, punctuation, and FAQ formatting are required.

An FAQ document typically provides brief and clear information regarding the subject in a question-and-answer form.


Consider using the following databases to research ethics, decision-making, and business planning.
