Plan Your Work Then Work Your Plan
But Who Has Time To Plan?
- Getting enough qualified leads to bid on and winning enough of them at a price that is profitable
- Finding employees who will arrive on time, do the work and not steal time, materials or customer
- Having enough cash to pay the bills before the end of the month and cash left over for the owner
In the past when you wanted a formal Business Plan it was more painful than a letting a dentist work on your teeth without using any painkiller! We found the answer. A simple financial forecasting tool that links to your Contractors QuickBooks file, does most of the work for you and it's...PAINLESS!
The Best Parts:
- Cloud based so you can access it 24/7 from any web enabled device
- Links to QuickBooks and updates automatically which means you never have to open QuickBooks
- Financial Reports and forecasting help you lead your contracting company to success and prosperity
Business Planning The Old Way:
We have developed hundreds of Business Plans. Some for our internal use for our contracting companies when we had them and for our contractor clients as well as clients in other industries outside of construction.
Every Business Plan required an enormous amount of time, money, blood, sweat, tears, foul language, banging of fists on table, aspirin and gallons of coffee and several painstaking hours of research to find comparative data of similar companies in the geographic area of the client company.
The good news is all the Business Plans we finished and the contractors used ended up generating some very healthy cash flows and profits. Most of the Business Plan projects were abandoned because the contractor wanted instant results and would not work with the Law of Growth.
Every successful farmer lives by the Law of Growth: Plant Seeds / Nurture Them / Harvest Crops / Sell Them. When you think about it, most farmers work all year and may only see a few paydays; yet each one is like winning the lottery.
We started writing Business Plans on pads of paper with pencils in the 1970's, then in the 1980's started using computers, in 2004 we finally found a Business Planning software that actually worked as promised called Business Plan Pro by Palo Alto Software headquartered in Eugene Oregon.
Business Planning The Fast Easy Way:
We stuck with Business Plan Pro until we discovered something even better called LivePlan, which is also offered by Palo Alto Software as a replacement for the old Business Plan Pro. I met the requirements, attended the required classes and recently passed their rigorous exam to become an Expert Advisor Live Plan Certified.
What This Means For Your Contracting Company:
LivePlan auto-magically links to QuickBooks and updates the data several times a day. The key is having accurate data in QuickBooks and since we only offer this service to our Outsoruced QuickBooks Contractor Clients you know your QuickBooks is up-to-date and ready to go! If you are not a client yet please contact Sharie 206-361-3950 or email email@example.com
Once we setup your LivePlan then all you do is login and review your reports, run "What If Scenarios", generate cash flow forecasts, Key Performance Indicator Reports and more.
