From that successful beginning, he launched JIAN (jee’on – a zen word meaning “the master of every art”), the company behind an entire suite of successful business productivity software apps & templates for launching, building and succeeding in business with minimum effort.

Business plan review comparison smart computing

The questions and advice included with BizPlanBuilder are, in our opinion, the best part of the program. We recommend BizPlanBuilder because it gets you thinking about what it takes to start and run a successful business. And with a price tag of $150, it costs a lot less than a consultant.

JIAN Apps Work Alike & Work Together!

JIAN integrated business development software templates

Making tools to help you get your idea into the world where it and you can make a difference as well as money and a name for yourself!

They Work Alike and they Work Together

All JIAN apps and templates are built on the same software platform — learn one and you’ve learned them all!

JIAN products are really part of a greater purpose.

There are many useful products and services that never make it to market (or they don’t last very long), most often due to their creators’ inexperience with the business side of business. We provide tools that help entrepreneurs and business owners do business better—so they can focus on developing their products and ideas. Who knows? Their next great idea could benefit all of us.

You’re going to love our apps & templates. We promise.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

But don’t take our word for it – see for yourself.

Try every JIAN app without risk for TWO months.
If you’re not completely satisfied, simply contact us within 60-days of your subscription and JIAN will refund your credit card. You can even keep the software! It’s that easy. And we’re that certain that you will be happily down the road with more business-building foundation pieces in place!
