Skopos (N.Mex) "Without this business plan, I just don't think our banker would have understood how bagels and schmeer fit into the New Mexico landscape."
Eddie (Bristish Columbia). "I wasn't sure whether to go with a franchise or not with my ice cream parlor. After going through the 7 Step process, I've decided to go with my own ice cream formula, especially now that we've learned about leasing the equipment."
Jamilla. "I really got it backwards. I got my place, got my menus, even put out advertising before I ordered the oven for our cupcake store. But we did it. And that was three years ago. Now that I'm ready to expand, I invited my banker to lunch here and presented him with our new business plan. He was really impressed. Heck, I'm really impressed!"
Aaron and Kirsten. "I know my way around the spices of the world, but I'm just not a numbers person, but you really made sense out what we should, and we should not, do. Thank you!"
Dusty Wilkerson (Idaho). " My waistline shows how much I love cheeses. My little import store now sits snugly into a corner in the mall. It is just the right size (if I lose a few pounds, haha). This book really steered us right."
