Student Review: “Very good course! Each step is well explained, then summarized, then further explained through an example, but still compact enough to re-watch again when needed.” – Peter Farkas

In my extensive career (see bio at left) – I’ve written, studied, and analyzed dozens of business plans. This course shares with you everything I’ve learned about business plans over my career.
There are 10 important sections you must cover in any good business plan, and there’s a simple SECRET to getting each one right. I share them all in this course.
•Executive Summary
•Marketing Strategy
•Industry Analysis
•Key Risks
•Management Team
•Timeline & Next Steps
Plus I provide detailed examples and two step-by-step TEMPLATES in both Word and PowerPoint to easily create your own business plan.
I will teach you how to write a powerful business plan to impresses investors, potential customers, employees, partners, advisors, and anyone else you’re pitching on your business venture.
I will walk you through the 10 important sections of any successful business plan and:
•Explain the purpose of each section
•Describe exactly what you should include in each section
•Share the secrets of how to tackle each section
•Give a detailed example of how to write each section by showing you an imaginary company called “Smart Watch Inc.”
•Show you not just how to create a compelling business plan, but how to think critically about building a great business
COMING SOON (things I’ll be adding to the course):
•A recommended reading list for starting a new business (mapped to sections of the business plan)
•Detailed answers to frequently asked questions from students
•All additions to the course are shared with you at no extra cost because you have lifetime access
This course is not about actually launching a new business. It’s focused mostly on writing the business plan that begins the launch process.
There is no risk: My personal promise is that you will get everything you need to draft a powerful business plan or your money back within 30 days. No questions asked.
You can return to this course for your entire life and access up-to-date lectures on writing a powerful business plan, all at no extra cost.
