Robert Pritchett needs business planning

Generation: Baby Boomer
Chapter: Colorado Springs, CO
About Your Venture: One branch is a technical services firm ("computer consulting" etc.) and a co-op for entrepreneurs, but the core is something special and proprietary as I'm effectively inventing a new industry. It's similar to a PEO ("employee leasing" firm) but uniquely better. Ideal customer would be a small entrepreneurial business about to hire people or about to have a steady payroll, with a small number of highly paid people (e.g. $120K/year each). Ideal payroll size (our gross revenue) would be about $240K/year and then I'll improve our infrastructure etc. and then grow until our gross profit is about $240K/year (about $2-3M/year gross revenue). By the way the earlier incarnation of this business had $1M gross revenue in 2006 so it's already a proven business.
Personnel / Skills Needed: Business Planning, Capital, Elevator Pitch, Executive Summary, Marketing, Pitch Deck for Customer or Angels
Importance / Priority: Marketing 10, Sales 8; then capital etc. if needed to support marketing & sales, then everything else will come as our business grows.
