Your business plan on steroids

As you can imagine, our organization sees a lot of business plans – good and bad ones.  The ones that stand out to me are the ones that concisely state their business model and do so in a simple format.  I am not talking about the formats that look like they paid a huge sum on graphics designers, I’m talking about the ones where they know the key performance indicators of their business, they’ve planned their progression and they show the goals associated with that progression.

The article “18 Ways to Make Your Financial Model Stand Out to Investors” by David Teten seems like he is of the same thought process that I am.

Also, while you’re reading articles, I found this article “How to do guarantees right. And how we grew a business by 49% by adding a guarantee.” by the Conversion Rate Experts website.  This is something that one of Rhodes Holdings LLC’s sister companies, Online Sales Juggernaut, is dealing with right now.

Funding

Lately, Rhodes Holdings LLC is doing a great deal of funding, but not public companies – private companies.  We have a sister website, Key To Funding, that is making great progress in bringing in new clients.  We have done a number of fundings in the past three months – equipment leasing, factoring (including spot factoring), acquisition financing, and other formats.  We’re very excited about our progress.
