We put the fun back into business planning – seriously! When you have successfully finished our Small Business Blueprint, Build Your Plan for Success in 30 Days course, you will have a business plan. It might be on sticky notes, or in a PowerPoint deck, or a map on the wall, or even a 20-page document. We don’t care what format you choose. We care that you build your small business blueprint and create your steps for success.
Let’s be honest…most business owners do NOT want to complete their business plan! Oh, they agree in theory that it is necessary, but that’s as far as they go. This course helps change that conversation.
Small Business Blueprint Course
In this four-session Small Business Blueprint course, we cover:
- Feasibility – we explore “will it work” for new businesses and growth directions/possibilities for existing businesses.
- Strategic Analysis – we help you create your mission, vision and values statements, and establish your goals and objectives.
- Products and Services – we help you become clear about what you are really selling.
- Marketing and Sales – from digital to display, we help you look at what marketing mix (including pricing) will work best for you to establish or increase sales.
- Finances – from sales projections to budgeting to financial statements, we cover it all.
- Legal aspects – we give you a high-level overview of legal entity selection, intellectual property and other legal aspects; we are *not* attorneys!
- Management and Operations – from human resources to logistics to product lines, we will help you understand how your decisions and management skills impact your company.
Additional Resources for Small Business Blueprint
In addition to class time interaction, you will have:
- weekly online, live Office Hours where you can ask additional questions and get feedback (not available in private 1-1 Blueprint packages)
- access to a video library that includes information on marketing, sales, legal issues, social media and technology. We upload additional resources regularly.
We often combine companies just starting out or relaunching their business with more experienced companies who have not yet written their business plan. Our clients love the excitement and passion of the new business owner mixed with the experience and knowledge of the existing business owner. We believe it is a win/win for both groups.
To be accepted into this course, you must first submit an application. We will respond to your application within one business day. Or we may cover these questions in your 1-1 Zoom consult. Once you have been accepted, you must complete your payment before your enrollment is finalized and you are in the class!
