As part of our Certified Culinary Travel Professional (CCTP) program, we have already helped hundreds of entrepreneurs who presented business plans as their final certification project. While our CCTP program has morphed into our MCTP program, we still provide business planning counsel as needed.

We helped new business owners to create their very first business plans, which included identifying the market's problem and their solution, their product's unique selling proposition, target markets, cost & pricing strategy, marketing strategy (distribution channels) and of course, revenue streams.

We also helped existing business owners who needed to update their existing business plan. Markets change, as do consumer preferences. Costs can increase or decrease, which can affect pricing strategy. We helped these entrepreneurs identify where they needed to change their current business plan, in order to reach for success going forward.

We helped quite a few career changers. These could be people who completely changed their profession for whatever reason. We also helped quite a few university students to decide which career paths to take. Everyone's situation is unique, and our solutions are always unique.
