Tony and Wendy were looking to get out of their current business and start on their dream of owning an aquaponics farm.
They needed the right tool that would help them plan, fund and execute their business the right way. They decided to use the Business Planner as part of their application to the bank to fund their estimated $500,000 2 acre aquaponics facility.
They were looking to invest in their start up plans but not go "deep in the hole" as Tony put it right at the beginning. After completing the Business Planning process they realized where they needed to focus, rethink their business strategy and came up with a plan that has made them much more confident moving forward.
Tony - "My wife and I would like to take the time to thank you for all the support you have given us in the last few months. Getting involved in the Aquaponic business has been a dream of ours for a year or two. Searching on the web for a suitable consultant has been, at times, quite frustrating. Most of the larger companies offering their advice are quite frankly way out of our price range.
As a current business owner we realize that there would/will always be “start up costs” no matter what you are planning. Yet some of these operations would leave the small investor so deep in the hole, before they could get any advice or direction that this would leave many people broke before they started."
