The bad news is that 50% of all new businesses fail in their first 3 years.  The good news is, businesses that create a business plan grow 30% faster other than businesses.

Entrepreneurs who plan are more likely to:

»  Grow faster

»  Think more strategically

»  Are more likely to get funding

»  Run their businesses against benchmarks

»  Operate from validated strategies and tactics

Are You Set Up for Success?

A well-developed vision is essential. Your staff and partners must believe in the vision you are working toward enough to support and follow you, stakeholders to believe in you, and investors to give you their support.

You must have a unique competitive advantage. It’s essential to offer something no one else can—and make that difference clear in the minds of your customers so they never hesitate to choose you.

Customers must get what they expect from you. In the minds of your customers your brand and product or service has to match up with your promise—and their needs. Once you’re attractive to customers with a value proposition that is crystal-clear, your growth skyrockets.

You must acquire customers at a reasonable cost because acquisition is what makes or breaks your company. You must master customer acquisition to attract customers.

Competitors can ruin you—if your eyes are shut. You must both analyze and interact with your competitors so that you are able to see how the market is naturally segmented, how competitive you are, and where to adjust your offering to stand out.

Back-of-the-napkin calculations won't support a company over the long haul. Make sure you have the right pricing model so that your offering makes sense to customers and you can achieve better margins and greater profits.

When you become a member, you get all the tools needed to start and grow a business and the validation of entrepreneurs who understand your challenges. Plus, you get the comfort of hands-on help and support every step of the way to ensure your success.  If you need to write a business plan or create an investor deck—your life couldn’t get easier:  we have a Business Plan Writer built into our interface.

The Financial Plan MasterClass gives you everything you need to create a robust financial model for your business. This is a critical piece of running any business.

»  Staffing projections for your business

»  An Income statement (P&L) to analyze gross margin

»  Expense model to track where the money goes

»  A cash flow statement to benchmark against

 

Financial Plan MasterClass Overview

Financial Primer

Your business can only exist if you make money. While a sound financial plan can win over investors, it’s also critical to use financial planning tools to monitor your company’s progress over time.

Your Revenue Model

Revenue forecasting is a form of predicting the future. If you use sales and marketing activity and industry research as the basis for your revenue model, you will transform it into a powerful tool for tracking performance and staying on top of your cash flow.

Your Staffing

The success of your business depends on the people you employ. With a sound staffing plan, you can forecast personnel costs, prevent turnover, balance contractor versus staff hires, and predict ROI for positions across the organization.

Your Expense Model

Your business expenses will cease to be a mystery once you understand and set up your expense model. Get clear on your costs, keep track of cash flow, and set the right prices to achieve eventual profit.

Your Income Statement (P&L)

The income statement, or P&L, is the financial report investors will scrutinize the most, and with good reason: it’s where all your projections and calculations are summarized to tell the story, in numbers, of how your business will make money.

Your Cash Flow Statement

Eight out of 10 business fail, which is largely attributed to poor cash management. Tracking how much cash is coming in and going out is crucial to startup success. Build a sound cash flow model that serves as a benchmark when you launch and work toward profitability.
