We can provide you with complete business planning services. If you choose not to write your own plan, we can write it for you. However, we prefer to work with you in the development of your plan. You are the industry expert. We are the business planning experts. Together, we can create a plan for you that will serve as a guide for the life as your business and one that will also put you in the driver's seat when it comes time to go to a lender or investor.
Our specialty is in strong financial planning and financial statement analysis. It has been our experience that the development of a financial plan is the most difficult part of the planning process for most small business owners. Preparing your financial documents is actually a very logical process...and we can safely walk you through that process and help you create a credible and defensible plan for your company. When we have finished working together, you will not only have a great plan......you will have completed an educational experience that will serve you well as your business continues to move forward.
How do we charge??? You will be billed an hourly fee. The more work you do, the less we will have to do. Most of our customers require from 6-10 hours of our services. The idea is that we will be there for you when you need us. Note: We cannot give you an estimate until we have personally discussed your needs and the scope of your business.

We can work with you either locally or through electronic communication. We will hold your hand through the entire business planning process. We will provide you with materials and resources, get you started, examine your plan at intervals, tell you what you need to do next, and continue the process until you have completed a plan that will work for your company.
