Be Your Own Business Plan Consultant
WELCOME TO THE BUSINESS PLANNING TOOLS PAGE
A good business plan consultant will agree that with motivation and our quality business planning tools you will be well on your way to more effectively leading your new or existing business.
Proper planning is key for any business owner that wants to approach the future with a solid strategy.
Many business owners would prefer to turn to a consultant to complete the entire task of business planning for them.
We encourage you NOT to do that.
"Richard, I thank you for having the foresight to develop this site. I
have decided to quit my job and take time off for my children's
educational needs. This site will certainly help me remain motivated
while I undergo my own self-development path. Thanks once again."
- Judith Crew
A business plan consultant may be part of the answer, but one certainly should not take the place of you (the business owner) being the main architect of your business plan.
The business planning process is one of the most valuable training
experiences a business owner or manager can have. Once you've completed
a formal business plan, you will be the expert of YOUR business.
If the business planning process is to be useful it must reflect your unique ideas and vision, not just those of an outside business plan consultant.
Please don't misunderstand our message here. A good business plan consultant - should you choose to hire one, can be an extremely valuable partner and coach.
However, make certain that your business plan does not reflect more of who your business plan consultant is than it does about who you are, and what you want to accomplish.
Protect and stay true to YOUR vision.
