What Others Say About the Course

“We were looking for a way to help us focus on what was most important to get our startup business off the ground. Joann’s business plan class helped us do that. We now have a written plan that allows us to communicate with our stakeholders where we are headed. Joann provided worksheets and examples to help us create our mission, do competitive analysis, understand target markets, look at operations, and put it all into a plan to demonstrate our company goals and how we will get there. Especially helpful were weekly online video classes. It was fun to check in as Joann led the conversation and helped us all learn from each other and together. We were able to ask questions to ensure we understood the current topic before we started the next exercises. The video calls were recorded so we could review to our heart’s content. Between weekly calls, Joann was very accessible. We got answers to questions as we completed the weekly worksheets and feedback on our homework "in process." Joann turned a daunting process with lots of unknowns into manageable, understandable steps. We are grateful for the opportunity to complete Joann’s business plan writing course. Thank you Joann! ”

Dan and Penny Georgevich

“Joann is a phenomenal mentor. Initially, I started working with a nonprofit business development center. I did not receive the help I needed to write the business plan to help grow my business. Joann’s step-by-step approach helped me understand all the business plan elements and how they fit together. Joann gave me the pieces that I did not even know I needed, saving me hours of frustration and costly mistakes. By the time we were done, I had secured an investor to help me grow my business. Thank you, Joann, for making this process so easy and simple. ”

Josephine “JT” Michael, Pono Hale Signature Properties

On top of that, working with Joann is an absolute joy. This course has helped me write my perfect business plan, and getting clear on my budgeting has helped me reduce the stress of being a new business owner. The course also helped me get sharper on how I differentiate my services from others in the market and help me prioritize my marketing efforts. I highly recommend this course to help you write your perfect business plan and unlock your business success.”
