“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 your 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…

Build a profitable business fixing
what needs fixing in our world!

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!

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.
