The Fastest, Easiest, and Lowest-Cost Way to Skillfully Develop Your Strategy, Systems, and Structure Supporting Your Vision, Priorities, and Expectations


Easily Accessable Tools You’ll Use — In an Organized Business Management Dashboard

The Antidote to Working 60+ Hours/Week, Growing Pains, and Overwhelm…

Update and Upgrade Your Management Processes to Enhance Culture, Engagement, Profitability, and Valuation

Reinforce your business growth and management with the roadmap, processes, and systems that
make it efficient, organized, and easier to run… Ultimately, to sell faster at a higher valuation.

13 Ways You Can Use Business Power Tools to Build Your Business:

To get to where you want to be, you must consciously create your business so it does’t need you as much as it needs you now.

  • Your Business is Growing and You Need a Clear Roadmap to Minimize Unforced Errors, and “Bootstrap” Growth
  • Raise Capital? – If Yes, Build Credibility and Demonstrate Believability With Investors & Lenders
  • Growing Business – Repeatable, scalable processes require organization, building teams, and managing employees. Control the chaos before it starts and continue growing smoothly.
  • Struggling Business – This sucks, but I’ve been there myself back when and my business plan pulled me out of the ditch. This offer is easily within your reach and just may save your bacon.
  • You’ve Got Money – Plan before you burn all that cash, make the most of your investment(s) in your business
  • Onboard New People and Get Them Fully Engaged ASAP
  • Having Operational Policies & Procedures In Place Would Add Value
  • Strategic Planning – Things change, issues and opportunities arise. Your business plan provides the context for ongoing updates to your strategy and tactics. Revise often with your team and advisors for best results.
  • Deal with a Big Corp – Build credibility. Can your business deliver on a big deal? They’ll want proof you have your act together. (Business Power Tools started with a business plan for a friend to land a deal with Apple. That evolved into our BizPlanBuilder and everything else.)
  • Licensing – Possibly a good move to monetize an idea outside of your business focus. License your product / intellectual property to an established company with the resources, distribution, and sales force. Just collect money.
  • You’re Selling Your Business and Want the Highest Price and the Best Terms
  • Succession – Everything Your Kids / New Owners Need to Successfully Continue What You Started.
  • Save $5,000 – $10,000 Paying Someone Else to Do All This For You

You May Not Need All of These Tools, But if You Do, Our “Everything Offer” is at the Bottom

Staged Modules for Every Phase of Business

Starting With a Different Kind of Business Plan:
a “Catalog” of Your Business

We’ve Reinvented Business Planning into an Organized Catalog of Ideas, Observations, Research, Market Analysis, Strategic and Tactical Options, Competitive Comparisons, SWOT, Your Team, and How Everything Works Together to Build and Run a Successful Business.

Everything you need to stay on top of as well as everything investors and a buyer wants to know.
And it’s easy enough to create while staying focused on the day-to-day.

“They laughed at my ideas…
Until I showed them my business plan!”

An Evolving Multi-Purpose Catalog of Your Business From Startup to Exit

The Best Time to Create a Business Plan Was When You Started Your Business.
The Next Best Time is Now.

A business plan is your hardest working document for organizing, coordinating, and prioritizing everything going on in your business.

We’ve re-imagined BizPlanBuilder as a cross between a strategic plan and a selling “brochure.”

A catalog of everything a buyer would want to know, with a believable financial proforma building on your history and projecting into the future.

Document Everything

Without comprehensive documentation, there are so many things that we basically end up re-thinking that you had figured out 3 years ago because teammates come and go and you easily forget what you decided, why you decided it, and you end up asking the same questions all over again.

If you don’t yet have a full business plan, here’s the easiest way to step through your business from top to bottom.

How your journey went from discussions around customer problems, your “story,” and solutions, to evolving needs of core customers.

It’s all securely accessed and easily maintained in an easy-to-navigate dashboard so it never gets out of your hands.

To keep the knowledge amassed, manageable, and accessible, it’s crucial to have an organizational strategy.

Having a let-it-flow approach might work for an unplanned getaway, but if you have to achieve certain goals with limited resources, don’t leave things to chance.

Otherwise, you’ll just have tons of orphan documents that no one can reference because they’re impossible to find.

  • A Detailed Blueprint for Projecting Future Growth
  • Make it Easy on Yourself to Attract the Right Money at the Right Time
  • Demonstrate Believability and Credibility With Investors and Lenders

The More You Prepare, the Better You Can Improvise and Negotiate

Here is a massive head-start for producing a professional business “plan” that serves multiple purposes— its secret sauce is the written-for-you text with embedded expert comments leading you through exactly what to say and how to say it.

Your plan also serves as a comprehensive onboarding document enabling a new team member to get-up-to-speed and fully engaged quickly.

BizPlanBuilder enables ongoing changes, so it’s easy to improve your plan as needed.

Its organized system of pre-scripted…

“This program is so complete it’s scary. It makes you think about what you’re doing in ways you never thought of before.”
~ Dean Goldman, Goldstone Music, Spring Valley, NY

Liz Jamieson, SBDC Advisor

“I have used BizPlanBuilder and it has an incredible amount of information, templates, spreadsheets, sample content, and tools in it. It is a very robust system (way more robust and flexible than LivePlan, if you ask me)! Burke has decades of experience with business financing and business planning software. I have also used Burke as a guest speaker to talk about pitch development and pitching angel investors, etc., as part of the ScaleUp program. Burke is a great resource for us to have available to us! ”

Designed for Overhelmed Business Owners to Reassess and Reconsider Your Operation While You Keep Running It

Not Having a Strategic Operational Plan Could Be What’s Holding You Back

Is it All In Your Head?
Do Your People Know How to Help?

  • What if you gathered input from all of your people.
  • Perhaps review and refine exactly who your customers are.
  • With certain changes and “pivots,” how much more profitable could you be?
  • Wouldn’t it be worth it to produce a better plan?

Does it Make Your Business Better…

The British Olympic Rowing team had a mantra: “Does it make the boat go faster?

All ideas are welcome, and accepted or rejected based upon the question, “Does it make the boat go faster?”

No shame in offering, your not crazy, all ideas are good as long as, “It makes the boat go faster!”

Need Funding?

Investors are real people, some are disciplined, many are skeptical, and they’ll have a lot of questions.

They’ll contact their advisors and friends, and they’ll come back to you with more questions.

They’re looking at other deals too.
You’ve got to be more interesting and their best bet for succeeding.

We know this. We’ve lived through it.
We’ve developed BizPlanBuilder to address the questions to keep you well ahead of your investors.

And we’ve used it ourselves with angels and VCs, an SBA loan, several big corporations, a line of credit, vendor credits, and with Mom!

“Burke and I have been acquainted for a number of years, and I’ve used and recommended his software solutions for business owners even longer.

You’ll find yourself creating a new plan or updating existing plans in record time, and you’ll feel confident in the quality like never before. I’d urge you to check it out.
