“I’ve seen some great ideas crash and burn due to business ignorance and naïveté — people suffer and the world loses a beneficial innovation…
I believe entrepreneurs have ideas to elevate humanity — I’m also convinced that you can be financially successful with your ideas – it’s why we make these tools… to help you… so we all win!”

“I hate it when good companies, products, or people fail!”

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 “8-track era” 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 consciousness and mindfulness – seeking the healthy approaches to business success.

Our mission is to infuse higher consciousness into business and practices, transforming how entrepreneurs think and act 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 a difference.

few can keep up, let alone know what to do, but the margins for error are razor thin and any mistake can take us down!

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.

Dubious free stuff? Or invest in intentionally designed apps & templates?

When you don’t know what you don’t know, our products solve the problem with examples of what to say and how to say it…
The free stuff just asks questions, but provides no direction, sample text, or helpful answers.

Free from the SBA, some banks, crowdfunding sites, and others:

Free isn’t worth it, is it?
Most free stuff is ‘bait & switch’ for something else, or to build a list they can sell. Here comes SPAM!

We’ve filled-in the blanks with exactly what to say and how to say it. Just edit the parts you need, add your ideas, and discover as you go.
