Requested and Tested for Use by the SBA

Automate Your Business Plan's business plan book and business planning software have been requested, reviewed, and recognized by lenders, investors, and by the SBA.

The SBA in Washington D.C. evaluated Automate Your Business Plan and requested our business planning software and book packages for use in their training programs throughout the U.S. By request of the SBA, our book, "Anatomy of Business Plan" (Ben Franklin Award - Best Business Book of the Year), was also condensed by Linda Pinson into SBA Publication MP-32, How to Write a Business Plan.



The Lawyer's Guide to Creating a Business Plan:
A Step-by-Step Business Planning Software Package

Linda Pinson has created a customized (for law practices) version of Automate Your Business Plan for The American Bar Association. It is available at ABA Publishing and specially discounted for ABA members.

A business plan is the blueprint for your law firm’s financial success. Without a business plan, a firm is essentially rudderless, and day-to-day decisions are likely to be haphazard and reactive, in stark contrast to those firms implementing a well thought out business plan. Designed for lawyers, The Lawyer's Guide to Creating Your Business Plan is a complete, easy-to-use customized Windows-based business planning software package that is the fastest, easiest way to research and write a winning business plan for a law firm. It’s perfect for new or existing law firms, of every size!

"Automate Your Business Plan" assumes you know nothing about writing a business plan. We walk you through the process and make your job easier.


Our step-by-step planning process will enable you to organize your industry expertise into a working business plan that will attract capital and ensure success. Automate Your Business Plan helps you create a defensible plan! 

¾   Complete instructions will guide you through each part of our plan. 

  Special Web page "hot links" you to marketing & financial research sites. 

¾   Five complete real-life business plans (2 product and 3 service companies including a dot.com, a restaurant, and a nonprofit organization) serve as examples to help you overcome writer's block. 

¾   Automate Your Business Plan is a stand-alone business planning software. It is not a set of templates depending on someone else's software for compatibility and support. If you have any questions, call us for live support! 

Lenders and investors are turned off by canned business plans that look and sound like everyone else’s.  A customized working business plan is a plan to succeed.




Your plan will be tailored to your specific industry and situation.
