I had never put together a business plan, prior to using LivePlan. I was hesitant to use a service, after spending some time researching my options. I'm pretty comfortable using excel and word to write proposals and estimates, so I though, I'll just put something together from scratch. I wasn't quite sure how I was going to illustrate the financial projections.
LivePlan was offering a promotional one month membership, which I though was reasonable even if I didn't like the application. I tried it, and I'm glad I did. There is no shortcut to writing a business plan but LivePlan has step by step instructions, examples, suggestions and customer support if you need it. You just need to gather the information and enter it. The most difficult part of the business plan for me was illustrating the financial forecast of the company. It's difficult to forecast profits and losses before you actually go into business. Naturally, you will need to have some idea of your expenses and revenue streams to get a good forecast. LivePlan gives you the ability to put together a Profit & Loss Statement, a Balance Sheet, a Cash Flow Analysis, Yearly Profit and Loss Projections and illustrate it with professional looking graphs. I'm so glad I used LivePlan; my business plan looks like I hired a professional.

I have used liveplan in the past with 2 other business models. I really like the ease of use and the examples that are provided to assist with the process. The ability to modify and customize sections is a really great tool. Although I really dislike crunching numbers and working financials out, I find that using liveplan has made it so much easier to accomplish this part of the plan.

Great tool to cut time to prepare your business plan and run various scenarios. Only thing I would like to see improved is the formatting after export to Word and it would be great to have an export function to Excel for the financial appendix.

I have been using live plan for the last three year and have enjoyed it very much. I started using it as part of a start up company that used it for forecasting and benchmarking. Once my company was acquired by an investment group I got a personal account for future business work. I love the new multiple projections feature!
