What are Some of Our Customers Saying?

I dreaded updating our plan.  I usually did the first draft and sent it around for a review before we met on it.  I decided to take a different approach and bought this package and totally revamped the plan, using the process and questions provided.  I got a great response from senior management.  Thanks.  Cali Hunter, Hunter & Segal  

I have read many business books on business planning but because this is already in MS Word, I was able to use the formatting which saved me a lot of time and the questions they asked to prompt some thoughts was invaluable.  You can tell whoever wrote this book had a lot of practical experience.  John Sumpter, CFO

This made writing the business plan easy and methodical.  Fred Nester, CEO Company Design

I had written business plans before but never for outside investors, this book helped me look at the business plan from their perspective which was invaluable.  Also the section on the exit strategy was worth the price alone.  Thanks again.  Scott Fuller, Aveon Technologies

About the Author - Scott Brogan

Scott held several roles at leading financial institutions including the head of a national sales force, product development and marketing.  His last position was the Managing Director of Corporate Development for one of the largest money management firms in the world, which at the time, managed over $400 billion in assets.  In this role, Scott was responsible for the firm's strategic planning, global relationship management and mergers and acquisitions. 

Since that time Scott has been consulting with small to mid size businesses and developing leading business websites and tools for improving business performance.  Below are some of the companies developed and owned by Scott:

Peak Strategy�s mission is to help consulting practices create and sustain a competitive advantage.  It is also the parent company of a portfolio of websites focusing on business owners and entrepreneurs.

Peak Strategy has an unrelenting focus on the issues that keep business owners and consultants awake at night. We use our business owner community, industry research, and franchise data as the foundation of all of our offerings. Our proprietary network of sites provides us with unique insight into the needs of small and midsized business owners - With access to thousands of small business owners we are able to draw upon their collective wisdom and insights to improve our business planning products. We use this group as a sounding board to discuss current issues, challenges and product development ideas. - Since 1991 we have been offering over 3000 products for sale to businesses and consultants.  We have drawn upon these resources to provide you with the tools and strategies you need to develop a successful business plan. - A searchable database of thousands of quotes, anecdotes, trivia, poems, speeches and other content that can be used in business speeches.  You virtual Cyrano de Bergerac! - Using our proprietary database we constantly monitor and evaluate industry trends and financial benchmarks.  We have leveraged these analytical tools and database for this product. - Franchises represent a significant number of all small businesses throughout the world.  At Research Franchises we monitor movements within the franchise industry, gaining keen insight into the tactics and strategies of Franchisors.
