~~~ What Is A Business Plan? ~~~

Writing a business plan is one of the most important aspects of starting a business in today's ever changing environment. 

Why is writing a business plan so important?

This is the question you will need to ask yourself over and over again. And once you come up with the answer that is right for your business, you will be ready to get started...

Starting a business in today's ever changing environment is a challenge in itself. So many entrepreneurs are jumping into business ownership without first planning their new venture. 

The importance of planning your business cannot be over emphasized.

By taking an unbiased look at your business, you can identify areas of weaknesses and strengths that you might otherwise overlook.  Planning can mean the difference between your business being a successful one, or it being a failure.

The idea of a plan is to help keep you mentally focused.  In a sense it is sort of like a goal.  You write it down, follow it and make changes and updates as needed. 

This is so that you can keep everything in proper perspective, because without a step by step business plan, there is no way you can keep your business running successfully, unless you are just a super lucky person…

What are the chances of that being true? Not Much.

Writing A business plan is simply the process you'll use to organize your business goals and strategies. It is a written expression of your business ideas.  And, it also provides information needed for others to evaluate your business.  A thorough business plan can help if you are seeking assistance from a financial lender.

It will let the lender know that you are serious, and also let them know that you are working and planning for your business to ultimately be successful.

Every business plan is dynamic.  Each business has its own unique personality and is different from any other one.  Your business plan should reflect your businesses uniqueness.



~~~ How Can We Help You? ~~~

Everyday we have people contacting us and asking for help with writing a business plan for their business.  It would be impossible for us to give everyone that asked personal help. 

So I have written a manual that will help you with writing your business plan. 

This manual is intended to aid you in the preparation and the writing of your business plan for your business. 


The first part of it is written to help you write your business plan.  There is plenty of note space for you to take notes as you move through it.  You can also take additional notes on other paper as needed. 


You should write your business plan as you go through this manual.

Have you ever joined an Affiliate Program or a Business Opportunity or a Multi-Level-Marketing or a Franchise or what ever?  And once you signed up and got started you felt so alone.   

You needed more help and more information, but it was not there for you to get.  As time went on you kind of felt that the only reason your sponsor or up line helped you sign up was so that they could get a commission for signing you up. 

The chain of events went something like this:

· Before you joined your sponsor was SO helpful

· You were SO excited about becoming a member

· You signed up and became a member

· Things seem to be going good for a while

· You bought just about every product they offered

· You were making a little bet of money

· Your sponsor was still very helpful

· But as time went on sells started to slow down

· Things started to change

· Your sponsor seem to be too busy to help you

· Your circle of customers started to close

· As time went on, it would appear that your sponsor had LEFT YOU OUT THERE

· You started to lose interest in the program

· Six months later you are absolutely

We have put a huge emphasis on training. As long as I

can remember I was being trained on something or another.

me "No, No, No!" or "Stop that!” I guess they were training
me to keep my hands off of their stuff.

lives. That's why we have put together this Work Shop. The
