Business Plans and Pitch Decks
Every business starts out with an idea, a vision, and an entrepreneur brave enough to embrace the unknown. Once the idea begins to grow, most new businesses struggle with how to plan for success. A business plan is a valuable resource that will force you to work through issues and set goals to ensure your success. It helps you see your weaknesses and strengths, and lets you plan accordingly.
The Business Girl will help you create an effective business plan that presents your business ideas and objectives in clear, concise language. Each plan includes financial projections based upon realistic, detailed assumptions. I don't believe in using a "canned” approach or over-the-counter business plan templates, so each business plan is tailored to the unique characteristics of your individual business and its specific industry.
Plan Writing: A great business plan distinguishes a company from all others and proves why an investor, bank, partner or other entity should invest capital, time and / or other resources into a company. A comprehensive business plan consists of both convincing narrative text and realistic financial projections. I customize the narrative sections to clearly and concisely explain the business opportunity and how you intend to maximize its potential. The financial projections are created utilizing realistic, detailed financial assumptions. The finished result is a professional business plan that can stand up to the most critical investor and make them excited about your business idea.
Fees: Because most of our clients are small start-up businesses, we offer reasonable rates and a flexible payment schedule. The fee for a business plan is dependent upon the scope of the project and the complexity of the plan. 1/3 of the fee is due to begin, 1/3 is due at first draft completion, and the final 1/3 at final draft completion.
What if I only need a business plan review? We offer a discounted rate for business plan review and commentary.
RFP, Proposals and Technical Writing
When it comes to creating a winning proposal, you need to stand out from the crowd!
You know that your business is unique from the competition. You have a history of getting things done. You are the very best company to select for that critical project. You just don't know how to tell everyone else how great your are!
My expertise in writing winning proposals coupled with your company's desire to generate new business can create that amazing proposal that wins you new business. I can manage the RFP process from the moment you receive the request through the information gathering and writing right up to the final submission.
I learned what it takes to set yourself apart from the competition by drafting RFP responses for government contracts for Lockheed Martin. Later I went on to hone my skills writing technical proposals for a large software consulting company. As a management consultant, I work with a variety of clients who need proposals for government rfps, technical rfps, construction rfps and much more.
