Version 2.1


BUSINESS PLAN MASTER will:

* Help you create a highly professional business plan.

* Save you many hours (even days!) of work.

* Let you compare your business with others in your
industry.

* Give you buckets of money, Shangri-La, a Rolls-Royce
in your driveway, the perfect spouse, wonderful
children, world peace and intergalactic harmony.
(just kidding!)

Requirements
------------

Any PC or compatible with a word processing or page
layout program and a spreadsheet program. These files are
designed for use by those with a basic (not advanced)
knowledge of word processing and spreadsheets.

The text files are in WordPerfect 5.1 (*.WP) and
ASCII (*.TXT) formats. The spreadsheet files are in
Lotus 1-2-3 files v2.01 (*.WK1). Any later versions and
also many other competitive programs such as WordStar,
Word, or Quattro Pro should be able to import these
files.

I am partial to laser printers, but it is not a
requirement UNLESS you are planning to present this plan to
venture capitalists or other sophisticated investors.

A version written for Microsoft Works is also
available. The title of the file should be BPMWKS.ZIP.

A Macintosh version is also available. It is located on
CompuServe, Ziffnet, GEnie, Delphi, America OnLine, BMUG,
and BCS-Mac, as well as several shareware vendors.


Purpose:

Every business needs to have a plan in order to track
its progress. There is no business too small, too large,
too complex or too simple to avoid having a business plan.
I found that many businessmen assume that the usefulness
of their business plan is over once the business is
up and running. I have been successful using a business
plan not only to start a business, but as an important
management tool in an ongoing business.

This program is designed for use by any size (small,
medium or large) or type (product or service) of business.
It also includes all the necessary information which most
lenders or investors are seeking.

I didn't write this program in an ivory tower some
place, but out of my own business experience. For seven
years, I imported cuckoo clocks from the Black Forest of
Germany, so this is definetly a "cuckoo" program! I have
been involved in many other business ventures. I'd be lying
if I said I made money with all of them. But I can
truthfully say that all were successful, mainly because I
followed a plan and stuck to it.

BUSINESS PLAN MASTER supplies you with complete template
files. I give you professional formats (footnootes, tables
of contents,some simple graphics), some excellent sample
text and several spreadsheet files for you to use. Alone
these could save you many hundreds of hours of work.
Because of the wide diversity of businesses and business
ideas, I have tried to make these files as universal as
possible. Over time, you will likely incorporate your own
language into the text and make modifications to the
worksheets.

Please work on copies of these files in case you trash
one. It happens to all of us!



-----------
QUICK START
-----------

If you want to get started quickly, just read these few
lines:

FIRST, take a look at what is here.

Open the spreadsheets in your spreadsheet program. The
best file to look at first is BPMPROF.* (Proforma Financial
Statements). I highly recommend that you do your
spreadsheet work first. Make sure your business idea is
going to be financially worthwhile before trying to
write the text portion.

Get into your word processing program.

Open the BUSINESS PLAN MASTER file, either BIZPLN21.WP
(WordPerfect 5.1) or BIZPLN21.TXT (ASCII text). This is
the main BUSINESS PLAN MASTER file which will contain
the text you will use.

To access the BIZPLN21.WP in WordPerfect 5.1, hit
(List Files), change to the A directory (or the directory on
your hard drive where BIZPLN21.WP is located), then retrieve
it by hitting "1".

If you are now hopelessly lost, take a look at the
User's Guide. By registering at the *PROFESSIONAL* level, I
send you a printed User's Guide along with other valuable
items.


--------------
List of Files:
--------------


The text files are in two formats, ASCII text and
WordPerfect 5.1. The spreadsheet files are in Lotus
(*.WK1) format. These files can be opened with higher
versions. Most other spreadsheet programs can import
the Lotus.


BIZPLN21.TXT and BIZPLN21.WP
Business Plan Master

This is the main template document. A ready-to-go form
which will help you have a business plan in print in just a
few hours. Identical in every format. TXT = ASCII,
WP=WordPerfect 5.1.


REGISTER.ME
Registration Form

This is a shareware program and this is the form to use
to register.


BPMBREAK.WK1
BPM Breakeven Analysis

A simple worksheet to determine your breakeven point.
Contains macros.


BPMHIST.WK1
BPM Historical Statements

For companies which have been in business. A way to
compare your past performance to your planned future
performance.


BPMPROF.WK1
BPM Proforma Financials

A large worksheet which will chart your cash flow,
generate income statements, balance sheets, ratio analysis,
asset use, chart EPS, and technical analysis.


USERS.GDE
User's Guide

You may print this out to guide you in filling out file
"Business Plan Master" and the worksheet files. Or you can
register at the **PROFESSIONAL** LEVEL and I will send you a
printed User's Guide designed to fit nicely next to your
computer.



--------------------------------
How to Obtain Technical Support:
--------------------------------

All users can obtain Technical Support either by U.S.
mail, CompuServe E-Mail (70400,153), GEnie (D.WORKS3), or
America OnLine (DavidW2959). We will try our best to fully
support unregistered users during their evaluation period,
but we will give priority to registered users, if necessary.
Registered users become eligible to receive free, unlimited
Technical Support by telephone.



------------------
What SHAREWARE is:
------------------

Shareware describes a method of distributing copyrighted
software in which a user is allowed to fully evaluate the
software before purchasing it. After an evaluation period,
the user is required to register the product if he decides
to keep using it.

Shareware distribution addresses all of the legitimate
complaints that users have with commercial software
distribution.

o Shareware allows a user to fully evaluate a product,
free of charge, in his or her home or business, *before*
deciding to buy it.

o Shareware programs can circulate freely on Bulletin
Boards, through Shareware disk distributors, or through
user groups.

o Because Shareware distribution reduces the need to
advertise, Shareware is less expensive than commercial
software.

o Shareware authors can often be more responsive to users'
requests for help or bug fixes than large software
companies.

o Shareware software, needless to say, is never
copy-protected.


In short, Shareware is a user's dream come true. Users
show their appreciation to developers for this extremely
flexible distribution scheme by registering their software.
Without user registrations Shareware software would
gradually disappear. It is not sufficient to simply let the
"other guy" pay the registration. You are the other guy's
"other guy".

----------------------
What SHAREWARE is not:
----------------------

Shareware is not "free" software. Shareware is not
Public Domain software. The fee that you may have paid to
receive a Shareware program does not mean that the software
has been paid for. This money was paid to a Shareware disk
vendor, User Group, Bulletin Board Service or retailer to
cover their cost of getting the program to you. Shareware
software is paid for by registering your copy with the
author.




----------------------------
Business Plan Master History
----------------------------

BUSINESS PLAN MASTER has been under development for over
four years. During that period it has been in constant use
by its author. BUSINESS PLAN MASTER was originally
developed for the IBM PC. It was later developed to run on
Apple Macintosh computers. The development now is done
concurrently - wherever I feel like working on a particular
day!

Version 1 - released January, 1992.

Version 1.1 - vaporware

Version 1.2 - Released March, 1992 - Expanded emphasis on
service businesses, changes in User's Guide to make it
clearer, addition of ASP required text.

Version 1.3 - Released June, 1992 - Many cosmetic changes
and change of number formats to ease international use.
More changes in User's Guide to help understanding of
financial terms and phrases. Got rid of a lot of extraneous
*.doc files and added more humor.

Version 1.3(a) - Released September, 1992 - Added a few
items to BPMPROF.WK1. Maintenance upgrade.

Version 2.1 - Released November, 1992 - Rewrote spreadsheets
in Lotus 1-2-3 version 2.01 (rather than 2.2) to allow
greater usage. Added new text to BIZPLN21.* files. Added
Microsoft Works files. Added PROFESSIONAL PACKAGE
registration. Author moved to "God's Country".

-----------------------------------
The Future of BUSINESS PLAN MASTER:
-----------------------------------

BUSINESS PLAN MASTER is a dynamic program. BUSINESS
PLAN MASTER has changed considerably since its conception,
and it has been further enhanced since its Shareware
release. I originally wrote BUSINESS PLAN MASTER for an
import venture with Germany and that well-known German
perfectionism has rubbed off on me! I have already spent
thousands of hours developing this program.

By distributing BUSINESS PLAN MASTER as Shareware I am
expressing my confidence in the public to "Do the Right
Thing". I would like you to evaluate BUSINESS PLAN MASTER
for as long as 30 days before deciding whether you want to
keep it. If you do decide to keep it, you must register
your copy. Full details on registration can be found in the
REGISTER.ME file. I would be anxious to hear your comments
about BUSINESS PLAN MASTER. Please feel free to contact me
with your suggestions for new features, etc.
