What are the typical headings and structure for the business plan?
This is the format I normally work to, but your plan can be customized in any way you would like.
Do you have samples of previous plans?
For confidentiality reasons, I cannot send you actual plans that I have written but what I can do is to send you anonymized extracts from previous plans. I can also put you in touch with previous clients who may be willing to send you their plan or talk to you about the work I did for them.
How long does it take to write plan?
It normally takes 2 to 4 weeks from start to finish, depending on the nature of the business plan you need. Through negotiation it can be done sooner if you have a deadline that must be met.
What are your Terms of Engagement?
See here. You will click the checkbox on this online form once you have agreed to us working together on your business plan.
Do you do business plans for non-profit organisations or internal use for an existing business?
Yes. I can write any kind of plan that is needed. Over the years, I have written hundreds of plans.
What are your payment terms?
As is the norm for professional services such as this, you pay a 50% deposit before I start. When the draft plan is ready, you pay the remaining 50%. I continue working on the plan until it’s the way you want it.
What methods of payment do you accept?
Either bank transfer, debit card, credit card or PayPal.
Will you sign a Non Disclosure Agreement?
Yes, I am more than happy to sign an NDA if you’d like me to.
