I Teach Business

What’s a nice guy like me doing in a business like this?

“It started a long time ago… When I first read about a 200 mpg carburetor!”

business plan software template cloud

“I never did learn what became of it. (Conspiracy theory, urban legend, or…?)
Can you imagine how different things would be if that invention was real and made it to market?
Over the years, I’ve seen many variations of real “200 mpg carburetors” from a variety of people.
I’ve also seen some great ideas crash and burn due to business ignorance and naïveté…
people suffer, resources and time are wasted, and the world loses a beneficial innovation!
I believe entrepreneurs have ideas to elevate humanity and solve our problems.
I’m also convinced that you can be financially successful with your ideas.
So, I’m determined to help you turn your crazy/good idea into a successful company.
It’s why we make these tools… to help you… so we all win!”

You have a unique innovation…
A solution to a problem in our world?!?

You’re starting or building a business…
You have a lot to do…
You need more money… More time…
Direction… Experience… Insight…
All the help you can get…
It’s got to be right… Done your way…

You want to make a difference as well as a profit…
We understand!
And we have the tools to help you.

“I love it when good companies, products, and people succeed!”

says Burke Franklin, known as the man who’s helped “launch a million businesses” since he invented business planning software with the introduction of his best-selling BizPlanBuilder® business plan software system and templates. From that successful beginning, he launched JIAN (now known as Business Power Tools).

You can’t build the business of tomorrow
on yesterday’s thinking

Most businesses are built on documents written with the mentality of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s… Tang, Twinkies, CheezWiz…

We’ve taken on the task of revising the important business-building documents with emotional intelligence and mindfulness – seeking the healthy approaches to business success.

Our mission is to infuse higher consciousness into business and practices, supporting entrepreneurs to think and act with broader perspectives as they build and run their companies – with software templates that minimize mistakes and maximize success, enabling you to offer your products and services to make an impact in our World.

Recently, we accepted an offer from a Chinese company for the “www.jian.com” URL (just the web address, not the company) and used that opportunity to rebrand JIAN as Business Power Tools!

“It's crucial that your innovations succeed in our world.
This means that your business must be profitable and sustainable –
without you losing control, your mind or your shirt!”

~ Burke Franklin, Creator & CEO, Business Power Tools

Building a successful business and being a mindful and responsive entrepreneur is an emotional, mental, physical and spiritual bootcamp. Yet, few things are more rewarding and gratifying than succeeding with you own ideas and making a difference in the world.

Success is hard for entrepreneurs and business owners today. Besides the economy, we face a multitude of ongoing problems… planning, raising capital, compliance, managing HR policies, prioritizing marketing campaigns, PR…

Our idea of changing the world is providing the tools you need to help you change the world!

Few can keep up, let alone know what to do, and the margins for error are razor thin so any mistake can be a real set-back!

Many things in this world need to be fixed. If you have a vision and are inspired to do something…

If you have ideas for what needs to be done…
If there are things you are great at and love to do…
You can build a profitable business fixing what needs fixing in our world!

Business Power Tools software and templates help you sustain your ability to do what you love to do so you don’t have to go out and work for a living. If you want to make your passion in life your livelihood, we have the software, tools and resources to help you build a successful business on your ideas — one that makes a profit as well as a difference in the world!

Free stuff… Or invest in intentionally purposeful apps and templates?

The free software templates may provide some information, but often little direction, sample text, or helpful answers.
Aren’t you betting a great idea, investment from a variety of sources, and the next few years of your life?

Here’s what you often get for free:

When researching “free” business planning products, here’s what we found:

free business plan builder template nawbo liveplan pro

Really? That’s it? That’s all you get… NOTHING?!?

So, now what do you write?
There’s a good reason it’s free… Most free stuff is ‘bait and switch’ for something else, or to build a list so they can sell you something else?!? We give you more. A lot more!

Your small investment in the right tools gets you where you want to go with minimal effort and risk of failing

We’ve developed software templates and filled-in the blanks with exactly what to say and how to say it — complete text intended for you to actually use, yet you can customize it to fit perfectly for your unique business.

What we’ve done is hard, which makes it easy for you!
Just edit the parts you need, add your ideas, and discover as you go.

Click to See What Really Works

When you click above, you’ll see a complementary copy of our version of the “Management” section of your business plan.
Go ahead and use it to create this crucial section of your business plan for free!

Spend time reading books, taking seminars?
Or just get it done?

Now these projects are easy to put in place because we’ve done the work for you: the research, the narrative writing, the creating and verifying the financial models, proven the presentation decks… You’ll see when you subscribe. Access everything we have!
