How Will Your Business Plan Help You?
Our business plans can be put to use immediately after they are completed: Take them to the bank or present them to investors to generate
interest in the firm. We will give you guidance on how to do this. As your company grows and changes, we are available to help you update your
business plan, to reflect new forecasts, products, marketing directions, etc.
We can help you along every step of the way to research a new or existing enterprise, test its economic feasibility, prepare the business plan,
and many other aspects. Our business plans are credible, comprehensive, and extremely well-researched. They demonstrate where the
Client's business is now situated, where it plans to go, and the most effective method of reaching its goals.
Our Clients want a business plan primarily for three reasons: First is for start-ups, to use as a tool to attract loans, investment partners, or
grants; second is to use as a road map to better operate their company; third is to inform the existing shareholders, management, and even
employees as to how their company is doing.
We work with clients throughout the United States, from New England to Hawaii, from Alaska to Florida. Regardless of where your business is
based, all information and data in your business plan will specifically reflect your trade area. To learn more, send us an e-mail or call us, or click
on Contact Us.
Nothing says "Professionalism" better than a well written business plan prepared by our firm. The reader will know that you have pride in your
company's product, process or service, and want to display that information in the best possible light. We take personal care to ensure that your
plan reflects what your company is all about, and that it answers any questions that its reader may have.

|"...after deciding to start up my|
firm, I contacted Don Weekley
and asked for assistance - I had
never started my own company
before. Don took great pains to
explain the steps involved in the
process, and to map out
the actions needed....we built a
business plan together....I then
presented the business plan to
my partners, who were impressed
and who felt that the plan was an
excellent representation of
my new company. The company
began operations...and has
been very successful....His
counsel and experience have
truly helped make us a success."

What Does a Business Plan Cost?
Our firm charges within a price range, depending on your industry, the purpose of the plan, and your needs. We do not use
templates or canned reports. Each of our plans is tailored to the Client's unique needs. This also means that we do not
prepare a 100-page plan, and charge you accordingly, when your plan needs to have only the size and scope that gets your
message across. You will find that our fees, as little as $1,900 for a professionally prepared product, are near the lower end
of the quotes we found in our fee survey! Fees charged by other firms are all over the spectrum! The average fee quoted for
eleven firms in a recent survey was over $7,000.
How Long Does It Take?
We know that once you have decided to proceed, you want to take delivery of your new business plan quickly. Under normal circumstances, we can have it in your hands
within 12 business days after our start date and after receipt of the contract and deposit, depending on our work backlog at the time. After you have communicated to us
any changes you want to the draft, we can usually complete and deliver the final original documents within two more business days. (Very complex business plans may
take a few days longer.)
As with all of our services, we are a phone call or an email away from you. To learn more about our services simply phone us (504.889.2028) or fill in our form on the
