"Exceptional book written by someone who has been there and done that! Uses a simple methodology to construct what most entrepreneurs find difficult and simply overlook it because they feel it is too overwhelming. Highly Recommend this book for anyone planning to go into business for themselves or planning to expand their business."

"Business planning revolution!
I've been an entrepreneur in the agricultural industry for 8 years and this is the business planning/modeling system I've been waiting for. I teach it to veterans and aspiring farmers as a no nonsense method for planning business and production models in a quick and to-the-point manner.
This is the future of business plans no doubt. Great job Michael!"

"As an operational Project Manager for a large state agency, this effort by Mr. Penney will quickly become the ‘Gold Standard’ concerning planning and managing projects within my organization. It is filled full of relevant information that is applicable to any industry. Its content demonstrates and gives solid examples of how to take tasks, regardless of size or complexity, and systematically decompose them through a detailed planning process."

"As a civilian and Patriot, I began listening to Penney's podcast for the 'Sea Stories' and was amazed at how equally entertained and intrigued by the business aspect of his post-service life. I was completely immersed in the idea of the 5 paragraph format, but the plan didn't directly apply to my career as a middle school teacher...at first. After listening to the tutorials and reading the template, I was able to modify the amazing 5 paragraph business plan so that it was applicable to daily activities in my classroom. The format is extremely easy to follow and adapt to any aspect of your life that you are looking to make the most out of, based on your passions and desires. Hands down beneficial for everyone!!"
