"We're On Our Way Now...

We just got a real investor!"

"Here's my secret. I've been keeping it quiet until all the paper work was signed.

"We got the money we need to take our business to the next level. And, the first award is available today. Just the right amount to put the finishing touches on our product, rollout our marketing plan, and hire the key people we need.

"The investor says my plan has made me a valuable entrepreneur and there's more money coming as we reach each of the milestones in the plan. We're starting to live the dream, thanks to our team and the helpful tools on this web site!"

Today more than ever before, having a solid business plan is what counts.

There's so much money and so few good investments. Investors have a hard time telling which investment is better or worse than the other. Yet, somehow you've got to fund your business.

The good news for you is that hundreds of thousands of other business people have proved there is an unfailing way to do it. Write out your plan, learn to talk about it clearly, and investors will be glad to put real money in your business.

You can learn to write a plan that will set you up for the amount and type of funding you want, whatever it may be. You can write your plan at home or in your spare time using the tips on this site or by following the Business Plan Secrets Revealed Manual.

It is my business to prepare people to present and market their businesses to investors.

For over a decade, I've worked with some of the top investment houses in the U.S. buying and selling companies. I've put together and read hundreds of plans, and performed due diligence on countless others.

Over one five-year span, I closed seventeen deals and raised over $760 million. And, I keep adding more.

You too have the same chance to attract investors and money for your business.
