These Tools and Dashboard Enable Can Be Your Biggest, Easiest Opportunity.
Business Power Tools is best suited to businesses at all stages needing structure and processes to grow. Depending on where your clients are now and what you’ve done with them so far, how might you support them further? They might say:
We’ve been making DIY business development software templates for more than 30 years, through all kinds of economic conditions. Along the way, the content evolves and just gets better. Many businesses, it seems, are “train-wrecks” behind the scenes. Obviously a problem if you’re trying to finance or sell one. As much as startups and business owners “need” our dashboard and tools, I find that business advisors/consultants like you actually get the necessity and utility of our document and financial model templates. My value-proposition for both you and your client is for them to subscribe (or you subscribe them) and pay you to coach them through doing these crucial projects together.

There is a transition in every company from a “seat of the pants” kind of entrepreneurial company to a “process driven” mechanized one… The reality is that you need to standardize many things in a company if you’re to scale quickly…”

The One We Want Our Clients to Use…
“BizPlanBuilder is the best business plan software on the market. We have used other packages, and when we found BizPlanBuilder, we decided it is the one we want our clients to use. In our business, we do a lot of SBA loans, all across the country.
It’s important for the bankers to see the personality of the business and the people involved in the ventures we are seeking funding for. Financials alone are not enough.
All the aspects of a business need to be covered in the business plan, if a company is going to be considered for funding.
BizPlanBuilder helps a business owner do that — it covers all the bases, and helps generate the thinking required to produce a complete picture of the proposed venture.”

…continue our consulting relationship indefinitely.
“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
“I’ve been using Burke’s products for well over 20 years, and as business consultant, I have helped many companies raise $50k-$100k, and others in the millions, for a total over $200M. I highly recommend having a chat with Burke if you’re looking at raising funds, and/or looking for a great tool to help manage your HR, ops and admin. For the business consultants here, you can use this system to help your client raising funds, and charge for that service.”
~ Serge Gravelle, Creator & CEO, Global Sparks
Your tools are my favorite “go-to” tools
“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 tools are my favorite “go-to” tools, 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.”

~ Stephen A. Oster, The Oster Group, Inc., Greenwich, CT
Used Both Business Plan Pro / LivePlan and BizPlanBuilder in My Past Management Positions
“I have used both Business Plan Pro / LivePlan 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.”

Contact us if you’d like to partner with Business Power Tools to create a custom business dashboard loaded with industry-specific templates.
For control, we recommend subscribing for your clients
To engage more clients in longer-term, more lucrative projects, provide each client with their own subscription.
Within the subscription, you, your clients, and their team have private, secure access to the entire BusinessPowerTools system online.
As the system Admin, you set up their subscription and control who on their team has Admin, Editing or Read-Only access to each of their apps.

“Is it possible to create various business plans with the same subscription or do I need to buy more for different business ideas as it is common with some other online business plan tools?”
You can develop as many projects for yourself as you want with just one account.
If you want to collaborate, you can add as many additional users as you need.
If you are creating plans and documents for clients and you want to collaborate with them, you can give them access…
But first you must understand how the dashboard and its security works.
Otherwise, if you give one client access to the Business Plan tab, for example, you give them access to all business plans.
Security and the assumption we made…
Once inside, authorized users can be given access to any or all of the 3 kingdoms.
Depending up on how you want use the system, you can have multiple companies within the castle or each company has its own castle. With multiple companies in the castle, everyone with access to the business plan, for example, will have access to all of the business plans. This is great to enable the CFO to access the business plans of an organization with multiple business entities. For a consulting practice, it would be better to have each client company in its own castle, keeping other clients out.
Security is built around the subscription to protect all of a subscriber’s dashboard assets and enables managing all of their apps and templates from the “My Account” control panel at the top of the dashboard.
All of Planning, Finance, HR, Legal, Management, Marketing, PR, Procedures, R&D, Sales… belong to one subscriber.
We presume that all those invited to collaborate or view belong to or work for that subscriber / client / company.
Next, we give you control of who has what kind of access to specific sections. Within each subscription you can add as many people as you want, while controlling which sections they have access to and whether or not they can just read it (read only) or have editing (read/write) capability.
ex: Certain employees could have access to the business plan, employee policies handbook, and safety procedures, but set to read-only. The HR manager would also have read/write privileges for the HR section, but perhaps not the marketing plan…
This way everyone working for a company can contribute and/or be made aware of all things specific to that company / client. Finally, the left hand knows what the right hand is doing and they can work together!
So, if it’s just you writing a business plan, you can write as many as you want because you have secure access to all of them. If you are developing multiple business plans for multiple clients, the way to keep them separate and secure is to open a new subscription for each client company, and their respective teams and advisors can be given controlled and secure access.
If a plan is for different clients requiring access for collaboration / review, each would require their own subscription.
As you might imagine, it’s very complicated to try and replicate another layer of security around each individual section just to control who has access to individual docs within a section. Instead, we made the system more economical and secure to handle everything within a single subscription.
(Walking Dead fan? Imagine building a really good wall around the village keeping the zombies out vs. adding another set of walls around each house in the village, and leaving the main gate open…)
We think you’ll find the subscriptions reasonable and managing users very easy.
You can be confident that your clients are assured that no one outside their company can get anywhere near their data!
Given all the tools available, we believe that you’ll enjoy and excellent ROI on your client subscriptions and gain many advantages for landing and managing clients, and serving them well!

These guys know EXACTLY what they are doing…
“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.”
