Book Review: The Joyful Business Planner by Kate Martin

5 Apr

This business planner is special. It is for small business owners like you. People that need better organization, a clearer path to follow, and a little more joy in their lives.
Your busy schedule doesn’t have time for complicated systems. Expensive software won’t work in your budget. You can’t find things in your office and it’s holding you back from success.
This book will change all of that. It will help you:
Discover the honest ups and downs of your business by analyzing your own data all in one place.
Greatly improve your chances of getting a business loan when presented to your financial advisor.
Finally, keep your business ideas and procedures truly organized and easy to access.
Work towards productive goals when you use the evaluation sections for each month, quarter, and year.
Track the progress of your business in a familiar and trusted paper format – not online.
Train employees about what matters the most in your company.
Inspire yourself to remember why you started your business in the first place.

Available on Amazon.

 

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Being a small business owner, I was hoping that this book would give me some ideas. In fact, I was able to print the forms off and we’re going to be working on them over the next couple of weeks. My husband isn’t much for using software so being able to do this on paper will really help.

One thing I really like is the section on the Business Plan. I’ve always felt intimidated by Business Plans but this worksheet is great! There are other sections that are just as helpful for small businesses and I definitely recommend The Joyful Business Planner for any small business owner, especially if you’d like a simple plan on paper to help grow your business.
