Simple Biz Planning, Inc.
Our business was formed to address the issue of why more entrepreneurs won’t write business plans.
The answer, of course, is that the task seems too overwhelming. Those who try often get bogged down in jargon or caught up in research, and their dreams die before they can give them life. Worse, other small business owners impulsively sink their life savings into something, only to encounter problem after unexpected problem.
We created this site to include everything entrepreneurs need to build their business plans, including free articles, templates, forms, and worksheets, as well as Search Engine Optimization Program for Small Businesses.
We have something for every small business owner, regardless of the size or type of business or industry,from service businesses to retail, manufacturing to distribution, one-person operations to 100-employee companies.
Our sole goal is to make the process of crafting a business plan so simple, everyone will be tempted to try.
