At Echo Chamber Consulting, our mission is to provide you with a set of tools to plan your future. Fundamentally, we teach you how to develop a comprehensive business plan. A serial entrepreneur may be able to get financial backing with a sketch on a cocktail napkin, but unfortunately, most of us don't fall into that category. A well written, thorough and well thought out business plan not only clarifies your own plans, but is evidence that you are a serious business person dedicated to your venture.
Echo Chamber Consulting (ECC) has a combined 30 years of business experience and more than 20 years direct expertise in writing, coaching and consulting on business plans.
