EVERY BUSINESS NEEDS A PLAN
one of the last places you can still find
THE WILD, WILD WEST
YOU DON'T HAVE TO
ride through the challenges of the
OPEN RANGE ALONE
ZimmInc creates business plans for trailblazers like you.
Every new business needs a plan before launch, otherwise you’re winging it.
How can your business grow faster?
A business plan is required to get a loan or venture capital.
My business is growing quickly and things are falling through the cracks.
You’ve been lucky without a plan … but that time has passed.
“What if …” scenarios to protect your business with a backup plan.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics,* almost half of all businesses fail in the first five years, and 20% fail within the first two years.
The reasons businesses fail today have not changed much over time – and all of them are still due to lack of planning.
Common Reasons Businesses Fail
Unclear business model
Don’t understand my customer
No unique value proposition
No risk mitigation plan

While it’s true that that entrepreneurs are resourceful, studies show that companies with a Plan are about twice as successful in key areas like growth and getting financial assistance.*
That’s because a business plan answers questions such as “Where are we relative to our goals?” “What are our goals?” “How can we achieve our goals?” “What will we do if … .”
Answers to these questions are critical at any stage of your business, so it’s never too late to create your unique business plan.

I already launched my business, I don’t need a business plan.
While it’s true that your business plan is your roadmap to success, the daily management of your business can be overwhelming. So, you need a coach to keep you focused and on track.
That’s why ZimmInc stays with you after we collectively create your plan, and it’s all included as part of the process.
We’ll meet quarterly to review what’s working, what’s not, what needs to be done, and what needs to be updated. That way you don’t need to ride through the open range alone.
Once I have my business plan, I’m all set!
