Creative Entrepreneur's Edition Reader Reviews:

I hadn't purchased this book because I thought it was a joke...

"I had seen this book around but hadn't purchased because I didn't think a one-page business plan, even if possible, could be of any practical use. I have been involved in several successful startups and have done a fair bit of business planning. I had even won prestigious awards for it. Currently I am involved in another startup, Worldlingo.com, an internet startup focused on language translation.

So what changed my mind - why did I purchase it? I saw the author speak and he made a lot of sense, so I thought I had better get his book and check it out once and for all. If half of what he said was right - this one page business plan was going to be a big help.

It so happened I had a long 14 hour flight in front of me and took the book along to read. Its friendly style, graphics, and plain good sense (frankly the book is more like a kids coloring book then a traditional business planning book) enticed me to do the exercises as I went (which I never usually do). Answering the questions for my business and me. Not only had I finished the book by the end of the flight, but I also had time to type up the final product on my laptop. I guess having already done a full blown traditional business plan for the business helped.

I have to say I was feeling pretty pleased with what I had produced. I felt more focused and had a much clearer picture of what the most important things were that needed to be achieved next. But the most thrilling part was when I tabled it our staff meeting - they loved it. They could clearly see where we were heading, what we had to achieve, and it gave them a clear framework in which they could make the many decisions they have to make everyday.

I think the one page business plan is a great management tool that will have a very positive effect on our business. I am already seeing the benefits. I guess the joke was on me!"

Simple, Simple, Simple!

"Can you think of anything more overwhelming to a potential or new business owner than the thought of putting all that down on paper?

Once you have completed "The One Page Business Plan" you have in your hand, the basis of your brochure or web page or networking and marketing plan. What more can a New Business Owner ask for?"

Executive Edition Reader Reviews:


WOW! Elegant in its presentation and SPOT ON!

Like others in the OPBP series Jim Horan has created another terrific book and CD loaded with examples that offer the Busy Exec the opportunity to fashion a Strategic Plan, Operational Plan, Business Plan and Personal Plan with clarity. Jim's crisp, down to earth, folksy style are the hooks to learning. You can fashion your plan quickly with the help of his templates, think through your vision,mission,goals and objectives efficiently, create charts and graphs to chart your progress with a click of the return key. You will be able to fashion any of these plans in 90 minutes or less and be proud of it. And, you'll want to refer to the one page articles Jim provides as well.

For a solo business to a Fortune 100, this is all you need. I use it in my business and recommend it highly.

Women in Business Edition Reader Reviews:

From $1 to $10 million in less than 5 years... with One Page Business Plans!

Practical, fun, and inspiring! Meeting Jim Horan and doing The One Page Business Plan at a SBA
workshop in 2000 was absolutely invaluable to me as an entrepreneur and business owner. The
return on investment of that $35 was incredible! I used the One Page principles consistently while building my business, an organic beauty company that went from $1M to $10M in less than 5 years. Every year, my partner and each of my managers created One Page Plans for the New Year. They kept us focused, energized, motivated. I am certain the discipline required by writing and implementing our One Page Business Plans helped keep us on track to build the business I always dreamed of! Building a business is hard work! One Page Business Plans will focus your efforts! This is the planning tool for anyone serious about building a business!

Christin Powell
Founder & CEO, Juice Beauty 2000-2007


From $13, 000 to $250,000

My first year as a rookie financial advisor was tough, I made only $13,000. Last year I made
$250,000 and I mostly attribute it to having a OPBP for the last three years. After creating my
plan, particularly my Mission Statement I stopped cold calling and started focusing on my LGBT
community which was the reason I came into this industry. I love my One Page Plan!

Cheryl Rebottaro
Financial Advisor, Morgan Stanley


Clear and Well Understood

We have over 200 sales people from Group VP to front line managers with One Page Business
Plans. This process caused executives and peers to inspire and challenge one another and to collaboratively craft the best possible plans. What emerged were clear, well understood and, most importantly, aligned plans and commitments. This is a powerful process I highly recommend!

Nuge Ajouz
VP Sales Consultants, Oracle Corporation


Love the Visuals...

The One Page Plan helped our management team obtain the results we need to succeed in this tenuous
business environment. Starting with a clearly defined vision, supported by specific objectives, to
the creation of strategies and action plans to make it happen, the Plan provides a clear path to focus
our efforts off the trivial many to the vital few. The various graphs available (I love the visuals!) are an
added advantage to track our progress and hold us accountable along the way!

Gwen Gallagher
President, Old Republic Home Protection


User Friendly

I recommend The One Page Business Plan® to anyone wanting to free themselves from the fear and terror of writing a business plan. This book is totally user-friendly, highly effi cient, and best of all fun.

Jan St. John
Founder of 21st Century Radio Productions



Highly Recommended

The One Page Business Plan helped our sales team and the entire manager team stay strategic and
on track even through the days of fire-fighting. I highly recommend The One Page Business Plan.

Non-Profit Edition Reader Reviews:

Now Helping Even More Kids...

"We must run our organization like a well-run business, or we do not get to serve all of the children we want to serve! The One Page Business Plan has helped us align our Board, management team, paid staff and volunteers! We are now truly focused on what is important… helping kids!"

Gary L. Montrezza, Executive Director
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Santa Clara County


Clarity About Vision

"The One Page Business Plan has been a tremendous tool for our 300+ member spiritual community.
This process brought our spiritual community clarity about our vision, enhanced the Board and Ministry
Leadership’s ability to articulate the vision to others, helped our individual ministries’ awareness of how
their plan relates to the community plan...and has helped us have quicker recoveries from breakdowns
because as a community we now have a common focus and purpose."

Reverend Richard Mantei
Unity In Marin


Better Organized Managers

"Our One Page Plan has helped turn some ‘social justice good-hearted souls’ into better organized
managers."

H. Dennis Smith, Executive Director/CEO
Northern Illinois Food Bank


Saved our Agency!

"Our One Page Plan saved our agency! We were in deep financial trouble, our accountants had lost control of our books and our government contracts were not paying on time. We created a very clear, concise plan using The One Page Business Plan that resulted in discipline and structure that got us back on track!"

Dan Macallair, Executive Director
Center on Juvenile & Criminal Justice, San Francisco, CA


Simple and Straightforward

Simple, Clear and Actionable!

"Jim Horan is a master at creating a model and simplifying a vocabulary for those in the nonprofit and
social venture and entrepreneurship professions that captures the competitive dynamics of our time.
Boards, executives, and managers are all pressed for time. Plans need to be simple, clear and actionable! One Page Plans are just that!"

Peter H. Hackbert, Ph.D.
Academy for Entrepreneurial Leadership, University of Illinois


More Like a Business

"Non profits need to operate more like for-profit businesses. Too often NGOs put off business planning due to staff capacity and difficulty in identifying measurable objectives. The One Page Business Plan for Non- Profits more clearly links objectives to mission with a method that is straightforward, takes less staff time and gets people working on the right things!"

Lyn Ciocca McCaleb, Board Chair
The Coral Reef Alliance


Minimize Costly Missteps

"With very tight budgets, even small mistakes can spell disaster for a fledgling nonprofit. I knew I needed a road map to minimize costly missteps, but did not have the time or resources to develop an exhaustive strategic plan. The One Page Plan is simple and straightforward; I used it to carefully and thoughtfully launch my non-profit. To date my plan has proven its worth multiple times over! The One Page Business Plan is an exceedingly valuable tool for any non-profit."


Tracy O. Tamura, Executive Director, Kidsteem™



Consultant's Edition Reader Reviews:

Wasting Less Time

Linda Pollock, Professional Organizer


As a Consultant, I Now Have a One Page Plan

Herman Dixon, CLU, CLF, LTCP, MBA
State Farm Agency Field Executive, Charleston, VA


This Book is Critical...

"Most advisors don’t understand they are not a salesman; they are the business owner. They need to
treat their book of business as a business, even if they are an employee. It is absolutely critical they
have a One Page Business Plan that defines their target customer.
It is a rare occasion when I am wowed by a product or service enough to mention it for your consideration. This, however, is one of them..."

Jeff Hughes
Chief Executive Officer, GAMA International
Washington, DC


A Great Tool...

"It’s easy for a stockbroker to get wrapped up in the market and lose perspective that you are in business for yourself. In order to be successful for the long run, one must have a plan and The One Page Business Plan is a great tool."

Ralph Miljanich, Sr. Financial Advisor/Consultant
Vice President, Morgan Stanley, Inc.

endorse One Page Business Plans."

Bob Fashano CLU, CHFS, MSFS
General Agent-The Guardian, Master Agency


Simplifies the Process...

"As an organizational tool, I believe it simplifies the process of condensing an agent's thoughts into a useful plan. For me, I was able to include just what was most important and leave out the fluff. If you are a numbers or bottom line thinker, this is what you will prefer for your plan!"

Kirk George, State Farm Insurance

ABOUT THESE BOOKS:


"The One Page Business Plan is an easy-to-use process that helps you capture your vision and translate it into concrete results. Jim has truly streamlined a tiresome, complicated chore. With a return to simple values, simple truths, planning can be fun and creative. A little chicken soup for busy minds and tired souls..."
Tim Clauss, Co-Author of Chicken Soup for the Soul at Work

"The One Page Business Plan is an out and out winner. Period. It makes great sense to me as a so-called business thinker. But the acid test was applying it to a start-up I co-founded. We spent several days drafting our one pager -- and have been editing it ever since. It is a powerful, living document, the very nature of which has led us to important new insights. One Page Business Plan = the proverbial better mousetrap!"
Tom Peters, Author, Thriving on Chaos and Co-Author of In Search of Excellence

"We have updated our business plan thanks to Tamara Monosoff, author of Secrets of Millionaire Moms. She swears by the One Page Business Plan model designed by Jim Horan."
