There is a transition in every company from a “seat of the pants” kind of entrepreneurial company to a “process driven” mechanized one… The reality is that you need to standardize many things in a company if you’re to scale quickly…”

The Value of Investing in Real Tools vs. FREE Apps & Templates.

Do you want to risk a great idea, investment from friends and family, the next few years of your life… on click bait?

Here’s what you often get for free:

A blank form?
What are you supposed to say here?
What are investors, lenders and others looking for?

free business plan software template

Really? That’s it? In this case… NOTHING?!?

There’s often a good reason it’s free.
Free offers may provide some information, but often little direction,
useful sample text, nor helpful answers.

Your true shortcut to getting it done. No more books, seminars, webinars…

We’ve done the work for you: the research, the narrative writing, the creating and verifying the financial models, proven the presentation decks…

Compare that with what you get from Business Power Tools

We’ve filled in the blanks with multiple-choice text intended for you to actually use. You can customize it to fit perfectly for your unique business. Just edit the parts you need, add your ideas, and discover as you go.
