    Your B2B business is growing but you don't feel in control. You want to launch a new product or startup but are unsure of the next steps. Growth is uneven. I’ve been there too. It's often about bringing Clarity to Clutter! TESTIMONIALS FROM SOME OF MY CLIENTS: “George has been an outstanding partner in developing a well thought out and effective business plan” “He has been a valuable advisor and coach for my business. George has helped me think through and put in place systems for realizing more predictable growth and managing more growth profitably.” “George was great to work with. He has great business knowledge and had awesome ideas and insights.” “Excellent business writer, very knowledgeable and extremely communicative.” NOT MANY FREELANCERS HAVE SUCH DIVERSITY OF EXPERIENCE AND ABILITY TO DELIVER VALUE... Business leaders need partners that can bring a seasoned perspective but also deliver what’s needed today. You need help to focus on what’s most important today, fix it, and then move on to the next area. My clients have built momentum for a new product or new business launch. They have turned their operations around to regain the growth and profit momentum they once had. For the last three decades, serving as an operating executive and consultant, I’ve learned that leaders know when they need help. The bigger problem can be defining the problem and identifying the right help to address it. When stuck, you need perspective and insight. Someone that has been where you are, that can quickly see what you’re facing, and offer valuable input. But, having only advice doesn’t always move the needle. You need value delivered to help regain or build momentum. Here are a few examples: •Writing a business plan –for a startup, restructuring or launching a new product begins with grasping the vision, considering all elements that contribute to or inhibit success, modeling financially, and then constructing a story that simply and realistically communicates this to investors, partners, customers or employees. •Startup plans – keep it simple, testable, and flexible until customer value is identified, with a low-cost, scalable business model. •Investor presentations – tell a compelling, understandable and emotional story that resonates. •Market research – identify the market segments and customer influence points before launching. For non-profits its developing campaigns that target all the constituencies. •Go to Market plans – taking a product or service to market needs well-designed marketing and sales programs that are cost-effective and coordinated. •Operational improvement – identifying what’s working and what needs changing, positioning for growth or stability, declaring the key metrics that indicate progress. •Financial projections - modeling change that manages cash flow and projects profits aligned with the vision. For non-profits, it’s starting from the beginning each year to identify the funds needed. Your business needs constant care and continuous change. Staying focused on what’s most important until it’s addressed is one of the biggest challenges you face. My broad perspective helps me keep you laser-focused. I could go on and on. I am a student of business and love to dig deep and share ideas. But I'd rather hear about what you’re facing today... To be candid, I stay busy and rarely have time to take on a new client. Even then, I screen very carefully to make sure it's a good fit. So if you need something in a rush, done cheap, or doesn’t require much thinking, please look elsewhere. It will save us both time and energy. Otherwise, feel free to contact me using one of the buttons at the top of the page, and I'll do my best to get back to you ASAP. Best, George

    I'm Sadiq. I have worked in the fields of business writing and financial consulting for the last ten years. The success of any business starts with a business plan. I'm committed to my client's business growth and expansion through a series of well-written and custom-designed business plans that suit your business goals and objectives. Why should you hire me? I have years of experience in business consulting and business plan writing, with over 200 successfully completed online and offline projects. I have worked with over 100 startups, and my business plan has raised over $50 million in capital funding from banks, investors, and money lenders. I have also helped clients take their business to new heights by optimizing the strategy, researching and analyzing their market and competitive position, and creating a clear and compelling business plan to articulate their opportunity. Organizations I have developed business plans for are:  Restaurants  Automotive  Food Trucks  Cannabis  Caterers  Small Farms  Non-profit Firms  Retail Brands  Food and Beverage  Online Platforms  Fitness and Nutrition  Real Estate  Trucking Company Even if your business isn't on this list, I've probably written business plans for it. The completed business plan will include, but not limited to: • Executive Summary • Company Overview & Description • Mission & Vision Statement • Goals and Objectives • Company's Milestone and Metric Analysis • Products Services • Industry Analysis • Market Trend • Economic Relevance and Analysis • Market Analysis Summary • Competitive Edge and Analysis • Strategy and Implementation • Marketing Plan • Target Market Segment Strategy • SWOT Analysis • Important Charts and Graphs • 3-5 years financial analysis & forecasts Here's what you'll receive: *Business plan delivered in PDF and Word format, including current market analysis, all research, financial spreadsheets, graphs, charts, tables, and visuals *Revisions of business plan after reviewing until satisfaction (within reason) *Consultation during and after the project to assist with funding and implementation One of my delighted clients, whose firm was funded due to the business plan and financial analysis I developed for them, is a testimony to my capacity, experience, commitment, and great knowledge. Here's what they said: “We are a young organization with a lot of potential, good energy, and faith in our vision. However, we have already been turned down by four banks due to a lack of a credible business plan. We were determined not to give up, so we went back to the drawing board and discovered that we needed a successful startup business plan. We concluded after studying Sadiq's proposal that he was the most competent professional to assist us, and we are pleased we chose him. His prices are ideal for small business owners; the quality is better than those charging $3,000, and his willingness to assist is absolutely amazing. You should give this person a chance if you need someone who will appreciate and work hard for each dollar you offer. Sadiq will definitely assist us with more writing jobs in the future. He comes highly recommended by me! " I know exactly what language investors, banks, and the Small Business Administration (SBA) want to hear and read, and I know how to put together a winning business plan. Some of my testimonials on Upwork: - Sadiq succeeded above and beyond my expectations. He took a messy, half-completed business plan and converted it into a gleaming 40-page document with a professional tone, images, lists, and pretty much everything I could want in a business plan! Thank you, Sadiq; I would definitely recommend your work. -I can't express my gratitude to Sadiq enough for his efforts." Sadiq was the definition of professionalism, devotion, and trustworthiness from the start of our project relationship. His continuous communication, honesty in comments, flexibility, and tolerance-even with last-minute modifications and demands-all contributed to the project's success.

    Currently working Pro Bono on legislation for legalization in the kingdom of eSwatini and mentoring future cannabis entrepreneur while increasing experienced indigenous growers knowledges. Jordan Curl is a cannabis entrepreneur, a United States Marine Corps combat veteran , and an international educator. Jordan is a practitioner and proponent of medical cannabis as a therapeutic treatment for PTSD and other ailments, and a cannabis advocate who has been part of the effort to legalize cannabis since 2004. At age 17 Jordan enlisted in the Marine Corps infantry and was deployed to Helmand province Afghanistan for two combat tours as a fire-team leader, and an instructor and advisor to the Afghan National Army and Jordanian Armed Forces. Jordan’s military career also took him to Oman, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Kuwait for joint combat and training operations with their respective militaries. Jordan has worked in the medical and recreational cannabis industry in California, Oregon, and Washington since 2010, and has acquired a high degree of experience within the many modalities of cannabis: cultivation, extraction, processing, and formulations, across a diverse group of products such as vape cartridges, topicals and edibles that he has helped bring to market. He has a deep knowledge of hydrocarbon distillation, chromatography extractions,solventless extractions, and a range of cultivation methods, including indoor, outdoor, greenhouse, mixed lighting and vertical for both soil and hydroponics. In 2012, Jordan co-founded Vulcan Mountain Herbal in Seattle to address the future needs of the still budding cannabis market. VMH is a veteran owned and operated medical marijuana patient cooperative that specializes in indoor growing and vertically integrated processing, extraction and distribution of medical cannabis to its patient network. Many innovative solutions and products that were created by VMH and its partners have now been adopted by the cannabis industry. In 2014, Jordan and his VMH business partners incorporated VMH into a recreational cannabis company called Vulcan Mountain Farms, the second company in the state of Washington to receive a recreational grow licenses for a 20,000 Square foot Tier 2 outdoor production facility. Through Jordan carefully cultivated cannabis network, he was responsible for the collection of over 100 different strains of mother plants and 200 different types of seed genetics for VMFs genetics library, as well as establishing the training and education program for cultivation and extractions. Notably, the company was one of the first in Seattle to accept cryptocurrency. In 2016, Jordan became the acquisitions manager for Seattle Bubble Works, an Artisan producer of water extracted bubble hash and prerolls, his role there included visiting and assessing licensed production facilities on their ability to grow cannabis and produce finished product to be used for the company as extraction material. At this time Jordan also started his consulting agency for the medical cannabis sector in Washington and Oregon, called Growers Without Borders, to assist medical patients conducting small grows for themselves or other patients, this work as flowed over to other countries such as Israel, Palestine, Ukraine, Poland and South Africa.
