Software Templates Make it Easier to Handle Startups’ Challenges of Organizing, Planning, Funding, Managing, Marketing, Selling, and Everything Else…
“I’m a seasoned business consultant and coach. I have a specific skillset that I bring to a number of SMEs, but I spend too much time prospecting and selling. I always wished I had some kind of sensible system that I could use to easily demonstrate what I can bring to my clients and make it easy for them to see that I clearly offer more than anyone else. Now, I can even offer my current clients more — beyond my original scope, yet well within my capabilities… And continue our consulting relationship indefinitely.”
~ Tom J., San Diego, CA

Back when software came in boxes!
“The customizable encyclopedia of everything you need to know about your business… but were afraid to ask!”
~ Michael E. Gerber, “E-Myth” author
“Now I can recommend a standardized financial proforma that all of my clients can use. BizPlanBuilder’s financial model has just the right level of detail (without too much!) in the same format every time, eliminating the crazy-making submissions from so many amateurs I used to get.”
~ Robert Steven Kramarz, Investor, Author, Executive Director, Intelliversity The Funding Academy for Innovators – Led by Investors
“I am writing to you today to express my appreciation for the use of your products over the years. Your technology in this complicated area of business planning, regulatory, HR and safety, and financial monitoring is crucial to the success of a budding business as they begin, and then begin to climb towards outside investment. I am a retired insurance CEO that now consults and mentors young entrepreneurs who aspire to follow in my footsteps. The last two projects are now producing over $1 million in revenue per month, and both are less than two years old. I operate in the micro-niche space of insurance programs. This space takes the carrier out of control and places that control in the hands of these young impresarios steeped in technology, but without the tattoo of years of experience on their resume. That’s what I bring to the table, along with my intellectual property and business relationships with insurers and global reinsurers.
I tell them as a coach, quoting Muhammed Ali, “it ain’t bragging – if you can back it up.” These kids have great spreadsheet skills, but it is the fine print and government regulations that harbor the “gotchas” that sink investor presentations. And this tactic is a favorite with venture capitalists as they “sift fly spec out of pepper” when it comes to which pitchman has the execution skills to keep their investment from sinking into a regulatory pit of quicksand. Your tool is my favorite “go-to” tool, and I recommend it strenuously to my clients; if they whine or discount its value, I second guess my involvement. Because I am a major long term investor in their success – if they don’t grow and hit each milestone on target, I have wasted my time. And I’m too old to be drilling dry holes.
Let’s continue to talk about how we can conspire to broaden the use of your products to buttress my investments in these new ventures, and I believe customization is a place to start.”

“As former president of the Connecticut Chapter and active national director of the 8,000 member Turnaround Management Association, I’ve been using BizPlanBuilder in my successful consulting practice since our first conversation 15 years ago. It’s fantastic!”
~ Stephen A. Oster, The Oster Group, Inc., Greenwich, CT
“Alright you guys, everyone writes a business plan because I want you to think through what you’re doing and where you’re going. I know it will change along the way, but I want you to show me the light at the end of the tunnel first before I give you money.
Next, everyone you hire needs a proper job description. While you’re at it, let’s give some consideration to the company culture that you’re building and produce an up-to-date company policies and procedures handbook. And let’s keep OSHA out of our back pocket by putting together some safety training and a manual.
We’re also spending a fortune on lawyers… I want you to use some good contract templates, preferably in plain English so we can all understand them. Our attorney can spend a lot less time reviewing them.
Also, before you ask for money to go to market, let’s consider all the options to see how we (you) can do this efficiently. And, while we have PR people, let’s give them a big head-start by having you use some templates to put together your own press releases…
Oh yeah, add me and the rest of our advisory team to your BusinessPowerTools dashboard so we can review your plans and documents, and easily keep up with the action.”
“I have used both Business Plan Pro and BizPlanBuilder 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 BizPlanBuilder, it’s much easier for me to help a client develop a professional business plan that I don’t have to entirely rewrite.”
~ Sajata Strong, Area Director, Clark Atlanta University SBDC, School of Business Administration, Atlanta, GA
“I have used your services for many years and always found both the products and your customer support to be excellent. Thanks and keep helping others.”

“Iown a full service Advertising Agency in NH. I use several of your products on a regular basis. We use Employee Manual Maker and Employee File Builder for HR, Agreement Builder to build many of our agreements with long-term clients, customers, and vendors, MarketingBuilder to build the templates to many of our marketing, advertising, and public relations plans, and BizPlanBuilder to build our business plan and corporate structure.
You don’t have to be new to business to use these plans. I’ve been in business for nearly 25 years, and I find these programs every bit as useful now as I did when I was learning as a new business owner. I maintain my upgrades because there is always new and better information supplied in the programs.
These guys know EXACTLY what they are doing, and how to do it. I had one situation where BizPlanBuilder came in unbelievably useful. I was hired by a small record label in Tampa, FL to put together a business and marketing plan for them to use to raise $350,000 in capital for their company. I was also hired to make the presentations to potential investors. Using both BizPlanBuilder and MarketingBuilder, I created the needed presentation.
My first appointment was with seven Tampa Bay Buccaneers interested in investing. After making my 35 minute presentation, I was unable to raise the $350,000 the record label wanted to raise. These seven men wrote checks totaling $575,000! Super Bowl thanks to you for creating such a fantastic software package. I use several of their products regularly in my business. I wouldn’t even try to expand my business without them.”
