Too often, highly qualified business owners miss out on receiving capital infusion because they do not represent themselves well on paper.

Our GUIDED Business Plan™ could dramatically change the quality of submitted business plans to make it easier for you to evaluate a business owner’s opportunities for success.

Help your clients improve their business plans without investing a lot of your staff’s time and resources.

Simply put, our GUIDED approach inspires participants to write a draft of their business plan or strategic growth plan in class and to return for one-on-one counseling.
Offer consistent training with our comprehensive presentation decks and facilitator guides. Buy personalized books for the classroom and individual counseling.

Best Practices

Streamlined
Counseling
It is frustrating for both clients and advisors to spend months developing a plan. With slow results, clients often discontinue their relationship with their advisor. Our GUIDED Business Plan™ books are a collection of questions that most advisors ask. Advisors can assign chapters for at-home work and then provide feedback on the written drafts to dramatically reduce the business plan writing cycle.
Group Brainstorming Sessions - Onsite
With our unique Demo.Write.Discuss. methodology, participants learn business terminology and immediately use it to express their goals for their business. Small business owners complete solid drafts IN CLASS to avoid conflicting with work/home responsibilities. The energy after a 3-hour session is contagious as they are inspired to revise their notes and form intimate connections with fellow entrepreneurs. Courses range from 3-hour to 3-months.
Convenient Learning – Online & In-Person
With “soul-crushing” traffic in some cities and blistering weather conditions in others, a combination of online classes and in-person group brainstorming is ideal to stand apart from numerous business plan programs. During customizable instructor-led webinars, participants learn and apply topic-specific strategies to work toward their next milestone. They email their written drafts to their advisor for feedback and a tele-advising session. They meet as a group at the beginning or end of the course to cultivate connections with potential accountability partners and referrers.

Almost every weekday, an experienced facilitator is leading a class using our GUIDED Business Plan™ books, presentation decks and digital tools.

The WBDC in Chicago started incorporating our books into their programs in 2013. They recently earned a $125,000 grant to expand their Scale Up course throughout Illinois which is based on our GUIDED Business Plan™ | Build to Scale book. According to the program director, one of the participants grew her company from $500,000 to $1 million after completing the course.

“Without being prompted for feedback, clients tell us that they refer to the GUIDED Business Plan™ book after the class…for years! It is a key takeway.”
