It's up to you to develop and execute a methodical plan of action to fulfill your dream or goal of running a successful business. Success is based on proper planning and the approach you choose to take and of course, luck.

Our business plans are not prepackaged boiler-plate plans which you might find on the internet for a very low price. Each business plan is carefully prepared by a CPA/MBA with your input and typically is about 15-25 pages. Its not just a "check the box" document for your immigration attorney and for you to never look at again, rather its a resource, and bench mark for you to use when you operate your business. Many thought provoking questions are asked, and numerous business what if scenarios, are used in the projection. Quite often, business owners will say that they never looked at the business that way and find the process helpful and informative. Each plan takes no less than 10 days to prepare the first draft business plan.
We can help you with writing a business plan and assistance with a projection to clarify your marketing, management, and financial plans, which include a PowerPoint presentation. More importantly, we can function as a resource to brainstorm new ideas.
