“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, Creator & CEO, Business Power Tools
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, and the margins for error are razor thin so any mistake can be a real set-back!
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!

“It started a long time ago… When I first read about a 300 mpg carburetor!”
“I never did learn what became of it. (Conspiracy theory or otherwise..?)
Can you imagine how different things would be if that invention had made it to market?
Over the years, I’ve seen many variations of “300 mpg carburetors” from a variety of people.
I’ve also seen some great ideas crash and burn due to business ignorance and naïveté…
people suffer, resources and time are wasted, and the world loses a beneficial innovation!
I believe entrepreneurs have ideas to elevate humanity.
I’m also convinced that you can be financially successful with your ideas.
So, I’m determined to help you turn your crazy/good idea into a successful company.
It’s why we make these tools… to help you… so we all win!”
“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 with the introduction of his best-selling BizPlanBuilder® business plan software system and templates. From that successful beginning, he launched JIAN (now known as Business Power Tools).
You can’t build the business of tomorrow
on yesterday’s thinking
Most businesses are built on documents written with the mentality of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s… Tang, Twinkies, CheezWiz…
We’ve taken on the task of revising the important business-building documents with emotional intelligence and mindfulness – seeking the healthy approaches to business success.
Our mission is to infuse higher consciousness into business and practices, supporting entrepreneurs to think and act with broader perspectives as they build and run their companies – with software templates that minimize mistakes and maximize success, enabling you to offer your products and services to make a difference in our World.
Now Business Power Tools!
Recently, we accepted an offer from a Chinese company for the “www.jian.com” URL (not the company) and used that opportunity to rebrand JIAN as Business Power Tools!
