“Teaching business planning for thirty years has forced me to be highly selective when considering a textbook, template, or software purporting to be helpful to new business plan writers. Business Plan Essentials caught my eye and interest quickly because it is precisely the kind of material I want my students and clients to work with for a successful outcome.”
