    I suggest offering a lesson on Grammar for Business Writing.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I had planned on creating workbooks centered around certain types of business writing (memos, business letters, press releases, white papers) and I suppose I'll write in a grammar section...

    For those of you who want to see the workbook, you can get it by signing up to the newsletter: http://www.writerseven.com/writer-seven-sundays-weekly-information-for-aspiring-writers/

    The more I think about it, the more I think that it might make more sense to sell this to companies as something which would increase the value of their employees.

    I took a look at the Business Plan and it looks fine.

    Rather than a Business Plan, I believe that a markeing plan would be more useful for you at this point and juncture.

    To what kinds of businesses? I suppose when I get around to creating the intermediate workbooks, I could try targeting a few.

    You have a point. I have a few ideas but I guess I'll have to get more aggressive about my marketing ideas. Steps 1 & 2 involve getting an amazing product into the hands of influential peoples.

    I'm thinking that outsourcing companies in the developing world might be a good target market, although you may have to build a pricing model which expects that they will buy one copy for all 500 employees.

    That could be a big issue. The same goes for students.

    I think that the Business writter is a good niche. Market is with some free business letter templates.
