Author Business Plan
Does the thought of writing a business plan make you wince?
If you’d prefer to skip the spreadsheets in favor of a more “writer-friendly” planning process – because deep down you know you could use a bit more direction to move your writing career to the next level – you’re in luck!
I’ve designed this business plan framework with the creative entrepreneur in mind.
Yep, it’s still a business plan...
But, I’ve created an in-depth, free training and workbook to guide you through the process. And I’ve tried to soften the corporate jargon, as well as give you ideas as to how you can use each section of your business plan to grow your writing career.
