John O’Leary is proof of the power of the human spirit. As a nine-year-old boy, John was burned on 100% of his body and given less than one percent chance to survive. He endured months in the hospital, years in therapy, dozens of surgeries, and lost all his fingers to amputation. Despite the odds, he not only survived – but thrived.

 John is a college graduate, business owner, hospital chaplain, international speaker, husband and father. His presentations have been described as “captivating, amazing and life-changing.” With emotional story-telling and great humor, John challenges and empowers every audience to dream again, re-ignite their passion and take positive action. John has shared his message with over 450 organizations in 37 states and 4 countries. To learn more, please visit www.rising-above.com.

An Introduction to Business Plans

No matter the size of your business, developing a solid business plan is essential.  First, because creating a business plan forces you to focus on exactly what you want to accomplish and how to go about it.  Second, a cohesive business plan is an important tool in finding new business and securing financing. It is the foundation of your growth and success.
