Tools to Help You Write Your Business Plan

November 1, 2015

Business planning that is easy to use, easy to modify, and that provides specific examples will make all of the difference when it comes to actually creating a business plan. The tools used to write a business plan just as the tools used to build a house have been significantly improved over thstartup-849804_1920e years and you should be using the best tools. Taking advantage of the cloud, “Live Plan” has a tool that provides not only includes sample business plans related to the NAICs code for your business but also a business planning template that is easily modified to meet your specific needs. I have even used this business planning tool to write a strategic plan and am sure it could be adapted to many other uses. An added feature is that once you have created a business plan you can hit a button and create a power point “Pitch”.

To begin using “Live Plan” and to receive a discount use this link.

Once have your own LivePlan account, you can add team members to your account to assist you. For example, you can add your SBDC business advisor as a guest (to view and comment) or as a contributor (to edit, write, view, and comment); no special link needed.
