Good Review

it was nice to have examples of each section of a business plan. Looking forward to read more books/reviews from the HBR 20 minute management series.

Disappointed

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A total rewrite

What do you think your next listen will be?

Business plan QuickStart guide by Clydebank was my next read and by comparison a much more comprehensive guide to writing a business plan.

What aspect of James Edward Thomas’s performance would you have changed?

Quite possibly a little to Mono tone

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Creating Business Plans?

Instead of following one single business concept/idea from start to finish it, I would die versify various plug-and-play Business concepts other than Just anInternet service/product company. Seem like more of an advertising piece for a fitness product/service.
