Immediate help with business planning for chamber members:

Download a free copy of the “Handbook of Business Planning.” This is the documentation that accompanies JIAN’s popular an successful Biz Plan Builder business planning software system. Please feel free to use this .pdf file with your members.

While I was with the Wharton Small Business Development Center, I wrote 70 or 80 business plans over a 4-5 year period using your Biz Plan Builder (all of our clients bought copies). Most business owners knew how to make products, but didn’t know how to really run a business. Mainly, we introduced them to budgeting, got them to profitability sooner and enabled them to be more effective and efficient in their business practices. Also, we did lots of ‘what if’ to help them to expand their marketing areas… and that was all with the older version of Biz Plan Builder! This new version is quite a bit more powerful. The new financials give you a lot more flexibility—a lot of nice stuff in there!”

Certain conventions you must follow regarding how people think about business, and Biz Plan Builder does that very well. I can now do in a day what it used to take a week to do!

Help your clients succeed

Keeping your members in business as well as helping them build their companies is good for business — all businesses in America. These proven and popular business tools teach best business practices as well as provide the templates for doing it right. Best of all, they cost you nothing and only make your job easier!

I have used both Business Plan Pro and Biz Plan Builder in my past management positions. With all the so-called sample plans in Business Plan Pro, it’s easy to think you have the final product. You really don’t—it’s not really that user friendly especially if you are not comfortable writing the narrative. Instead, with [Business Power Tools] Biz Plan Builder, it’s much easier for me to help a client develop a professional business plan that I don’t have to entirely rewrite.

1) BizPlanBuilder: Get the money and resources to fulfill your purpose!

Write a business plan for non-profit funding with JIAN BizPlanBuilder app software templateStrategic Planning Software Template for a Non-Profit

What are the measurable positive impacts you intend and what will be the measurable impact of donations?

You may be thinking… business planning is not for nonprofits, but this has every element of the strategic plan you’ve been looking for. Financial projections and marketing plans are equal to grant budgets and outreach plans.

A comprehensive business action plan gives you the edge with donors who want to see their money doing the most good.

They donate because they want to make a difference and they want you to do good works with the money they give you. Either way donors are “investing” in your organization.


The better organized you are the more donations you’ll attract!

After using these simple tools, you will have clear action plan to share with donors.

Whether you run a non-profit, a not-for-profit, or a for-profit organization, you still need to run an efficient organization! You might not call it profit or that might not be your purpose, but if you want to stop begging for cash and make the difference you want to make, you must be sustainable. And that attracts money!

BizPlanBuilder writes a strategic plan easily and with beautiful results. Its organized system gives you sample plan templates, built-in financial projections, and a proven PowerPoint presentation template.

Once you know your strategies for the next 6 months or 6 years, donors will be compelled to give you the funding you need!
