“I love it when good companies, products, and people succeed!”


says Burke Franklin, known as the man who’s helped “launch a million businesses” since he invented business planning software in 1988 with the introduction of his best-selling BizPlanBuilder® software system and templates.

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.

If you want to make a difference as well as a profit…
We understand!

If you’re betting everything on your business ideas,
we have the tools you need to assure your success!

Here's one example of why JIAN apps & templates are better:

Here’s a sample of what you get from the SBA, some banks, crowd funding sites, and others who offer FREE business plan templates:

What we’ve done is HARD,
but that’s what makes it easy for you!

You cannot BS your way through these projects!

Do so at your peril! Your plans and handbooks are being read by real people with a real interest in your business, not a teacher’s assistant in a hurry to meet friends for a beer!

All JIAN’s apps & templates are built with pre-scripted text intended for you to edit and actually use. No blank pages, no writer’s block. And you’ll learn a lot in the process, but customize them for your specific business needs.

Reality requires more rigor

It takes a lot to build a successful business. JIAN’s tools make it easy to implement your key foundation building-blocks because we’ve already done the heavy-lifting: the research, written the content, created and verified the financial models and worksheet calculators, proven the presentation decks… We care and it shows in our tools.

“It's crucial that your innovations succeed in our world. This means that your business must be profitable and sustainable – without you losing control, your mind or your shirt!” ~ Burke Franklin

Building a successful business and being a mindful and responsive entrepreneur is an emotional, mental, physical and spiritual bootcamp. Yet, few things are more rewarding and gratifying than succeeding with you own ideas and making a difference in the world.

Success is hard for entrepreneurs and business owners today. Besides the economy, we face a multitude of ongoing problems… planning, raising capital, compliance, managing HR policies, prioritizing marketing campaigns, PR…

Our idea of changing the world is providing the tools you need to help you change the world!

few can keep up, let alone know what to do, but the margins for error are razor thin and any mistake can take us down!

Many things in this world need to be fixed. If you have a vision and are inspired to do something…

If you have ideas for what needs to be done… If there are things you are great at and love to do… You can build a profitable business fixing what needs fixing in our world.

JIAN’s tools help you sustain your ability to do what you love to do so you don’t have to go out and work for a living. If you want to make your passion in life your livelihood, we have the software, tools and resources to help you build a successful business on your ideas — one that makes a profit as well as a difference in the world!

Put your foot in someone else’s mouth!

Not really, but here’s a unique and powerful opportunity to learn how to better your business by bettering yourself!

I wanted to share what I’ve learned from building my own business over 25 years compounded by creating software to help others build theirs. That said, here is a collection of true stories of successful business building…

Your business is a reflection of your own ethos — look within and update yourself before you try to fix everything and everyone else!

I’ve been infusing this perspective, knowledge, and wisdom into JIAN’s products and blogs in order to educate and influence people through business.

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.
