Dream it. Plan It. Launch it. With The StartingUp Now System

StartingUp Now is a step-by-step tactical guide to creating a business plan for new entrepreneurs, employing elements of today’s “texting” culture to communicate essential business principles necessary for starting and operating a profitable company.

Each of the “24 Steps” leads the entrepreneur through memorable abbreviations, informative definitions, useful examples and constructive prompts. A journal-style format creates the opportunity to formulate a business plan on the included StartingUp Now Business Plan template, accessible through the StartingUp Now Skillcenter.
