Businesses across all industries still fail at a staggering rate in healthy economies and the founder of The Academy of Human Potential, Melissa Montalvo, has finally identified the root cause.
“Whether failure on the surface is caused by a lack of resources, too much competition, poor product offering or an unfit market, the true culprit is typically a lack of planning,” she states.
As a sustainability consultant for highly regulated industries, Melissa has observed that creating a formal business plan increases survival rates by addressing all of the surface causes of failure, and the resulting document is then used as a marketing tool to obtain funding and in-kind support on demand. The business planning process is a fundamental step in business development because it generates a sustainable business model which is then transferred over to a winning pitch deck. She has noticed that many aspiring entrepreneurs tend to skip this crucial step altogether and instead wing it, which almost always results in failure.
To help conscious entrepreneurs build sustainable models swiftly and with ease, The Academy of Human Potential launched a flagship program hosted by their founder called The Business Plan Benchmark© which walks them through the business planning process and provides all of the resources, templates and tools needed to secure their first major milestone.
The online program also features some highly sought-out business coaching in video format that bridges the gap between the entrepreneur’s core values and true direction of their business. “Your course has already started to have a really positive effect on my life!” said Robert Alcock of Green Building Products, student of the program and client of the founder.
The program also includes a comprehensive guide with an award-winning business model, a business plan template that is fully customizable and linked to a dynamic financial model, and a Sustainable Business Model Canvas organized in a popular project management software. If more support is needed, upper tier levels of the program are available and grant access to legal templates, capital sources, and personal coaching.
“Business is a tool that has the ability to accomplish great things that may otherwise be impossible for one person alone,” said Melissa. “The Academy of Human Potential fosters the ability to impact the lives of others through conscious entrepreneurship and is building programs to meet that need.”
