Please let me introduce exactly what I do...

I've been drafting business plans for over 26 years now, quite successfully.
Projects have ranged from plans for start ups and expansions or developments of companies and divisions across quite a financial range, with businesses that include:

-publishing company based in the U.S. in the luxury media arena
-yacht club based on memberships for share of yachts across several worldwide locations
-car rental company renting exotic replicas
-nationwide sub sandwich company
-midwest based defense subcontractor
-midwest based organic food store start up
-start up automobile company launching proprietary technology within their vehicle

My work often involves the writing of documents on various levels including condensed versions of a plan to act as introductions to projects for initial viewing by potential investors, which disclose details about the basics of a company without giving away confidential information.
We find these help in not only safeguarding proprietary information, but also in enticing potential investors with initial, easily readable and understandable information about the company before they request and dig into time consuming details - I've never known someone in the position of investing that has time to read a 60 page plus business plan before something else requires their attention, so it is always best to garner that attention as soon as possible.

My ability to draft accurate plans comes partly from my ownership of various companies over the past 27 years and currently, with fully owned holdings and partnerships in the U.S. and in Europe. With this experience I can help bring a realistic view to the plan that established businesspeople and investors will recognize and appreciate.
As a note, my involvements including such things as ad agencies, publishing, marketing, yacht brokerage, real estate, mechanical engineering, machine shops, special machinery design and build, and land development among a slew of others.
Business is my passion, and I try to bring whatever resources I have available to every project ... including the experience to offer suggestions as to different methods to make a planned business start-up or expansion more successful right at the beginning stages.

I can also create financial forecasts based on provided information and with input based on factual running figures for a company.
From there, with accurate assumptions listed for the investors, I can help place a figure for the amount of funding required - important, as investors loath seeing investment estimates across too wide a range.
These can also be supplemented with cashflow diagrams that allow investors to plan financially for stages when funds are needed, something they greatly appreciate.

The one thing I will say is after acquiring your initial information on your venture, if I think it is not a reasonable and able venture I will not go ahead and charge you or write a plan as I feel this is dishonest.
What I may be able to offer at that point though is some insight into adjustment of your business view if applicable, from which we may proceed. This I offer on a complimentary basis.

I do not pre-quote prices for drafting business plans, I charge fees based on the size and complexity of a plan.
Often I can defer some or most of the costs until investment funds are sourced, based on my belief in the project and my ability to assist sourcing funds.
Please note: If anyone pre-quotes you, be very cautious. They may be planning to simply put your supplied information into a preset template without any real care as to your ability to utilize the plan.


If you think I can be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me.
