Doubt the free software???
Better to 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:

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

Sometimes you do get some useful ideas and content you can work with, but there’s often a good reason it’s free…

We offer a better deal

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!

Just get it done… No Need for books or seminars

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

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

“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…

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.

~ 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.

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!
