How to Thrive as a POC Small Biz Owner: The One Page Business Plan

Throw out that 30 page business plan template you’ve been staring at on your desktop! It’s okay, you never have to get to it. Today’s businesses need to be nimble and responsive to the ever-changing needs of our clients and customers.

The reality is, all you really need is a one-page business plan to get started. Whether you’re just starting your business or you’ve been doing this for a while, going through our See Change One-Page Business Plan together will give you the tools and insight to know your business is headed in the right direction before you hunt for your first or next customer.

We were all hit hard by the pandemic, but Black-owned businesses were hit the hardest. 41% of Black owned businesses shut down at the beginning of the pandemic vs. 17% of White owned businesses. POC businesses overall have a harder time accessing capital (including those PPP loans), less savings reserves, and are more likely to have funding gaps. The pandemic exposed the racial wealth divide in all aspects of our economy, especially our small businesses. Small business owners are some of the most creative and resilient folks out there. You know because you’re one of them. Through a generous grant, Brunch & Budget has partnered with GA to offer a small business workshop series designed to help POC build financially resilient businesses that can weather the most uncertain times.

The workshops include: Workshop 1: The One-Page Business Plan (10/21)

Workshop 2: Organize your Business like a Machine (11/18)

Workshop 3: The Road to Your First Hire (12/16)


Sign up for one, two, or all three of the workshops. The information is cumulative but you can jump in at any time and find past recordings on
