    Book details

At last, a complete business plan guide just for independent consultants! . . . And who better to write it than North America′s #1 bestselling author on consulting?

Unlike most general business plan books that focus on raising capital and applying for loans, this unique do–it–yourself guide concentrates on defining services and products. Written by Herman Holtz, the nation′s leading expert on making it as an independent consultant, it tells you everything you need to know to develop a realistic, workable business plan that prepares you for any contingency and helps guide your day–to–day decision making as your business flourishes and grows. Numerous illustrations and worksheets guide your every step and save you the drudgery of starting from scratch. This book covers all business planning topics of crucial concern to consultants, including:
∗ Defining your products or services
∗ Market research and sales strategies
∗ Rate structures and income projections
∗ Worksheets to help you create objectives and set goals
∗ Sample business plan

Includes the Author′s Disk to help you prepare your business plan, from defining your services and target market to estimating start–up costs, setting rates and consulting fees, and projecting income. Boilerplate contracts and letters of agreement are also provided.

A plan to succeed by effectve marketing and managementMost business plan guides are geared to teach the user how to write a loan application, for that is the primary purpose of many business plans. This guide is different: It is based on the premise that since consulting rarely requires any large up-front investment, most independent consultants will need a business plan that lays down the guidelines for successful operation, especially marketing--finding clients. The book thus includes a detailed set of worksheets to help the reader plan and carry out effective marketing and management of the consulting practice.
