[Legacy post: Small Business Talent] What would you like to accomplish this year? Just as important, how will you get there? My guest on today’s podcast is Tim Berry — a world-class expert on business planning and he’s here to help.
What do other top experts think about Tim and his work? Well, Guy Kawasaki made Tim his business plan expert in How to Write a Business Plan. Pamela Slim, author of Escape From Cubicle Nation, calls Tim the Obi-wan Kenobe of business planning. As if that weren’t enough, Tim is also the business planning coach at Entrepreneur.com.
Tim is the author of The Plan-as-you-go Business Plan and other books on planning published by Harcourt Brace, McGraw-Hill, and Dow Jones-Irwin. He’s the principal author of Business Plan Pro. He’s also co-author of 3 Weeks to Startup, published in 2008 by Entrepreneur Press; and author of Sales and Market Forecasting for Entrepreneurs, published in 2010 by Business Expert Press, and Hurdle: the Book on Business Planning.
Lastly, Tim is founder and chairman of Palo Alto Software, founder of Bplans.com, and co-founder of Borland International. (By the way, he built Palo Alto Software from zero to 40 employees, multimillion dollar sales, no debt, and 70% market share without any outside investment.)
Bottom-line: Tim is a seasoned entrepreneur and a true expert in the field of business planning. As you look forward to creating a successful 2014, you’ll benefit from the practical wisdom and cutting-edge resources that he shares with you today. (Scroll down to the Podcast Player and listen now!)
