Posted on Updated on

Whether you’re a small business needing a loan to start up or expand, or a non-profit looking to interest investors or donors, the one thing that is absolutely to your success is an effective business plan.

Robert Lawrence’s Business Plan Bible is a short guide to preparing business plans that work. From a one-page plan that is in reality a vision statement to a more detailed plan, including goals and objectives and financial projections, this book will assist you in building a plan with a minimum of hassle and wasted time.

This is a must-read book for the entrepreneur preparing his or her first plan, and a good refresher even for those who’ve done it before.

Outsourcing: The beginner’s Guide to Hiring Virtual Assistants by Robert Lawrence is a brief tutorial on how to deploy outsourced help in your business. A good starting point if you’re just starting out in your business.
