As part of an ongoing series, the CNN Underscored team showcases outstanding deals you can shop right now on the CNN Store. Each week, our staff chooses a product to feature that we think you'll love.
Whether you're in the beginning phases of creating a business plan or already have the next big idea to change up a certain industry, sketching out your ideas is an important step. Not only does it give you a written record to keep or share with colleagues, but it shows you a visual roadmap.
And Bizplan is an online application that can help you do just that. It's a go-to resource to build out a business plan with intuitive controls. Even better, in the CNN Store, you can score a lifetime subscription for just $49.
The interface is pretty sleek, with easy drag and drop pieces. And with formulas built in, you can leave your calculator at home, since Bizplan can handle almost any calculations. A finance dashboard allows you to import data and see it in a graphic format. Plus you can invite other team members or potential investors to check out the plan. A built-in comment system allows them to add feedback. It's a similar setup to Google Docs.
Bizplan could be an invaluable tool for sketching out your plan and monitoring progress as the plan becomes reality. And the financial dashboard can help a lot with tracking your business.
