Book Description

7 Sep 2013 First Timer's Guide
(Includes USA Friendly Content plus the Principles Taught In This Book Are Transferable To Any Country) Whenever the word “Business Plan” is mentioned most people freeze! What follows are the words “I don’t know how to write one”. This is why I have taken the lid off and written in plain English what needs to be considered and included in a business plan. This book has been written to help those who are writing plans for the first time or for those who write business plans infrequently (Even seasoned business plan writers will learn one or two things, I promise!) . I have included two different types of Business Plan Templates. The first one is for those who feel they need a very “Comprehensive Business Plan” and the second template is what I have called a “Power Point template” that can assist you in writing a business plan in just a few hours. Whichever one you choose to use, I want you to know that the information contained in this book has been used to help many start-up and growing businesses and I am confident will be of tremendous value to you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid. Really. AVOID. 10 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Contents: If you value statements like "It important if you want to create a good business to have a good business plan", you may like this book. It wouldn’t be that bad, but the book just does not go deeper than this.

"In order to have a good business plan, you have to pay attention to all the details" - great.
But - this is the book that was supposed to deliver exactly on those "details", wasn’t it? Or at least some of them. Or at least - list them.

Every page is like this. The book leaves the impression that someone was testing a generator of empty phrases with some reference to writing a business plan.

Print quality: Home printer + office binder. In some pages the cutter went through the text, on others - the font is of different size and so on.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Thorough, No-Nonsense Guide 23 Jan 2013
By MartyH
Format:Kindle Edition
It seems a bit trite to say this is a "no nonsense" guide, but that's exactly what this book is. It's written in an easy to read template format that walks the reader step-by-step through the process of creating a first rate business plan. My professional background includes nearly a decade as a small business coach, and one of the many things that impressed me about How to Write Your First Business Plan is how thorough and highly adaptable it is to any size or type of business.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short,sharp and very much to the point 10 Dec 2012
By MikeW
Format:Kindle Edition
I've been a business adviser for over 20 years and I've helped 100's of businesses plan for grow by using a variety of tools and techniques. I have to say that this is one of the best pieces of work on the subject I've seen for a long time. Not only is it a tremendous resource for pre-starts and new businesses it's also a superb reference document for more established companies and for advisers, consultants, mentors etc.

The book is written in a very straight forward, easy to understand style, and it really does cover everything you need to know initially about business planning marketing and finance. I particularly like the examples give on such topics as investigating your competitors, where to get further information, areas of research and the financial templates.

I'll definitely be using it in future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, quick, easy and it makes sense! 27 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed reading the book, especially coming from a business academic background so a lot of it made sense to me. What I appreciate about the book is that even if I didn't have a business background I would have still understood what was written.

For me I was looking for what you had to say about the finance side of things, this wasn't my strongest part when I had to do a business plan for my college assignment, but the way it was explained helped and I also like how the author has made the book interactive especially by offering to send out a template for the finance section. For someone writing their first business plan, such interaction is of help and reassuring. For anyone writing their first business plan this is the easiest and most straight forward text I've read regarding it. I like also how the author has added the powerpoint option, which is good for times when one has to present their business to an investor.

Very good piece of literature and I pray that will help many!

5.0 out of 5 stars First Timers Guide 18 Nov 2012
By Compton
Format:Kindle Edition
WOW. What can I say? Having written several business plans in the past, I can say that this book is an essential tool for all those looking to venture into business but are dismayed by the thought of having to produce a professional plan. I know from a personal perspective that a lot of solid business proposals never get to see the light of day because people are put off from looking at the business element due to either having to pay for someone to write a solid plan, or just the daunting aspect of wondering if you are even writing your plan correctly.

This step by step guide is both informative and effectively educational to ease the burden on your road to success. Once you have mastered this easy straightforward technique there will be no looking back.

Hat of to the author - this is a welcoming find, and one which I will choose to use moving forward with other projects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guide to Writing a Buiness Plan for Beginners 9 Nov 2012
By Elle
Format:Kindle Edition
For all those confounded by the idea of writing a Business Plan for the very first time, this book unravels the mystery surrounding the process brilliantly and removes the fear factor. The Author very astutely proves the point that all people are capable of unlocking anything ... if they are just given "the key".
