The Antidote to Goal-Setting


How to sell today

Burke Franklin

If You Have Issues with Setting Goals…
Every year at “New Year” we seem compelled to set goals for the coming year.
Since that’s rarely worked, what if there was another approach?

Burke Franklin invented business planning software in 1988 with the introduction of his best-selling BizPlanBuilder®.

He is the creator of Business Power Tools, the company behind an entire suite of successful business productivity software apps for launching, building and succeeding in business.

Burke was elected to the White House Conference on Small Business and nominated for Ernst & Young’s “Entrepreneur of the Year” award. He is also an instrument-rated pilot, and a second-degree black belt in TaeKwonDo.

Burke’s highly praised book, Business Black Belt teaches more than 70 contemporary real-world lessons and is rich in hard-won advice for building and running a business today. |
