============================

INSTRUCTOR BACKGROUND

My business plan book is consistently the top business plan book on Amazon, and is used by a number of universities and high schools. I've traveled across the country giving talks about business planning at universities that use my book.

I've been an entrepreneur for 15+ years, have coached 1,000+ entrepreneurs in person, taught 100,000+ students, impacted millions of entrepreneurs worldwide, helping some of them create 6- and 7-figure businesses in the process. I would love to help you too.

============================

INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO BUSINESS PLANNING

After coaching over 1,000 entrepreneurs, I came up with an easy way to write a business plan. Every business has three core elements: Product, marketing, and financials. That led to the development of the three-sentence business plan to get you started easily.

We'll start by walking you through the creation of the three-sentence business plan. From there, I'll show you how to expand it into a one-page business plan. Finally, I'll show you how to extrapolate it to a full business plan.

============================

I WILL BE WITH YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY

Are you tired of being confused about how to write your business plan? Are you stuck on writing it? I understand how it feels. I've coached over 1,000 entrepreneurs to create a business plan, and I will help you too.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to write a good business plan the very same day. The sooner you plan, the sooner you will start your business, and ultimately reach all your goals. So get started today by enrolling in this course.

============================

WHO THIS COURSE IS FOR

  • First-time entrepreneurs

  • People stuck on writing a business plan

  • People who want to create a great strategy before starting their business

  • People who need a business plan to help them raise money

============================

THIS BUSINESS PLAN COURSE IS BASED ON EXPERIENCES OF ENTREPRENEURS JUST LIKE YOU

Let me explain a little bit about why I created this course. I originally created the Problemio business planning apps on Android and iPhone that now have 1,000,000+ cumulative downloads. On the apps I saw thousands of people making common business planning mistakes. Over time, I started a business coaching practice where I help people write their business plans in a 1-on-1 setting. This course is a much more affordable option than buying a 1-on-1 coaching, but you get all the strategies I teach people when I coach them 1-on-1. 

============================

PRACTICAL, REAL-LIFE APPLICATIONS IN ADDITION TO THEORETICAL BUSINESS PLANNING

Each section of the business plan gives you actionable advice for how you can handle that part of your business during the execution phase once you get started. 

============================

NO RISK: MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE 

The course comes with an unconditional, 30-day money-back guarantee. This is not just a guarantee. It's my personal promise to you that I will go out of my way to help you succeed just like I've done for thousands of my other students. 

Invest in your future and enroll now.

Who is the target audience?
  • Aspiring entrepreneurs - if you want to be your own boss, start a business and reach great potential, this is the perfect place to start

Featured reviews

"Alex has done it again. After watching most of the course I felt confident enough to put together a business plan to show investors. I'm really glad I took this course instead of having someone write it for me. Most of my friends who used a company to have them write their business plan weren't happy in the end. Because no one really understands your business or your vision the way you do. Superb course. Would highly recommend you buy."

Izzy Kiver

"I highly recommend this course on writing a business plan. It gives clear steps on what needs to be done & how to go about doing it. I really like how the sections are layed out. It makes it easy to follow and also easy to go back and watch later if you have questions on a specific thing. 5 stars!!"

Amanda Smith

"Writing a business plan is essential, but sometimes overwhelming, and is a step many people skip. You don't have to. Learn the way here and get your business rolling the right way. Mr. Genadinik explains things in a real-world way so that you can take what you've learned and immediately get a proper plan down on paper. I highly recommend this class!"
