There’s never been a time in all of history with more business opportunities than now, and it’s never been easier than now to get into your own business!
But ideas are a dime a dozen, and it’s hard to know which one to pursue. You can’t just follow every scheme that falls into your path, you have to choose the right one—for the market, for the time, and for you. No matter how adventurous you are, you simply can’t afford to toss money in too many directions. Business can be a merciless teacher and a brutal master if you make the wrong choices.
So, how do you know if you’ve stumbled onto a brilliant opportunity, and if so, how do you grow it into a profitable enterprise?
You need to establish yourself as a leader in your industry, an expert for your business, and a creative genius in day-to-day operations. To achieve all of that, you need a plan.
In this eye-opening, inspiring, and confidence-building workbook, Dan Boudreau, business owner and consultant for more than 30 years, shows you step-by-step how to manage risk and build your business strategically with an actionable business plan.
This book will show you how to:
The Business Planner’s RoadMap is the sure way to prove your concept’s feasibility and write a business plan, no matter what kind of business, working solo or with a team, even if you’ve never owned a business or written a plan before.
Business is for the fittest… and the luckiest—and the best luck gravitates to those who are prepared.
In this book, Boudreau prepares you one manageable task at a time. Upon completion of the RoadMap you will have an actionable business plan and be ready to make your vision real!

No matter how well-intentioned your business idea, things can go horribly wrong. When I vaulted into my first business in 1980, I hoped to be a successful, positive force for those around me, and an asset to my community. Seven years later, the day I declared bankruptcy, I felt crushed, enslaved, and worthless. Not the glory I’d envisioned.
So, you’ve gone to all the effort to get your venture off the ground and survived the start-up phase. Aside from the fact that you’re too busy to socialize much, or take holidays, your business appears to be thriving. In your circle of friends you might even be a bit of a hero.
Congratulations might be in order. In starting a business, you’ve achieved something that many people dream about but never do. But are things as rosy as they seem?
