“I wanted to let you know that since I used your template, my business has improved dramatically and I am FINALLY starting to really grow.

You were right. I was able to easily create my financials (I was really scared about that going in) and editing the document was pretty straightforward.

And, then, a friend of mine introduced me to some angel investors. And when I showed them the business plan, they wrote me a check on the spot!”

Scott Sofsian
CEO / Tagzz

“When I first saw Dave Lavinsky I was immediately impressed. He seemed to have all the answers to every problem I had encountered with creating my business plan. But being a bit skeptical I figured that there must be a catch to him selling their business plan template at such an amazing price.

But after about a month I went ahead and I purchased the template. I was so impressed with how efficiently the template helped me complete my plan- specifically the financial projections which for a lot of business plan authors are the most intimidating part.

Thank you Dave!”

Autumn Adeigbo

“Finding Dave Lavinsky and his Business Plan Template allowed me to take my dream of owning a business and make it a reality.

My investors and mentors have commented that my business plan is the most complete and informative plan they’ve ever seen.

Without you, I wonder if I would have been capable of raising the amount of capital I needed to start my own business and follow my dream.”

Bobby Wiltgen

“I was so happy to find your business plan template. It was just what I needed to get my new business started in the right direction. The template pushed me to think in areas I had not put much focus on before, and I was able to put all the information in a well laid out plan and have it look very professional.

When I approached the bank and they saw my business plan, they were blown away!

As they began to ask questions about my business and monies needed, I was able to answer without stumbling over my words because I had a well thought out plan. They told me they had never seen anyone so prepared to start a business as I was. This gave me great confidence as well as being able to secure a loan for all that I asked for and more!

Thanks!!!”

Danell Fitzgerald

“Your business plan template has instilled hope and confidence in me. There are times I thought of giving up my dreams because I just could not deal with things like finances for a start up business.

As an individual, accounting and finances have never been my thing but with this template my dilemma becomes a walk in the park. Thus I am assured of success in business and also when persuading investors.

This template is a dream saver and I guarantee that no one will face disappointment.”

Fatuma Yussuf

“Thanks for all of your help! Before I purchased your product, I was largely uninformed about the process of raising equity capital outside of the established public markets.

The education that I obtained from absorbing the material provides me the knowledge base and confidence required to assure that I can successfully engage Angels and VCs as needed to grow my business beyond the seed round of financing.

Great work, and keep delivering high-value products to entrepreneurs in need.”

Hugh Youngblood

“Dave’s business plan made all of this achievable. The excel spread sheets made it easy to provide forecasts and budgets.

I just had to enter in our average check and amount of customers we anticipated feeding every day and then our historical expense percentages and the spreadsheet did the rest of the work.

When I had a question I just needed to call his team up. They were knowledgeable, helpful and friendly.

JD’s Smokin Grill n Bar- Authentic BBQ opened its second location on a million-dollar loan from M&T bank.

“It is my pleasure to write this glowing testimony concerning your business plan template. I am VERY pleased with this product and it has helped me complete my business plan.

I was awarded two government contracts as a direct result of your template. I do not know how we would have achieved these results without your company’s product.”

"We review funding requests all the time. Dave Lavinsky is right: most of them don't address what we need to see and totally miss the point. After recommending this product, we see them pass with flying colors, without fail."

“As I revise my May Cookie Co. Business Plan, I am prompted to write you to THANK YOU. Your business plan template has been enormously helpful in this process, more than I can express.

I don’t have to tell you how overwhelming it can be, and, while it will never be a simple task, the structure you have developed and resources you have provided, certainly make it a much more manageable undertaking.

Just wanted to let you know and send my gratitude!”

Susan Nolte
Founder & Owner / May Cookie Co.

“Would you like some more positive feedback? I sent the business plan, drafted using your business plan template to a trusted friend who is a retired CEO of a Fortune 500 company for comment. Within 24 hours he got back to me, '... very professional presentation...'.”
