She built a successful company out of a very non-tangible product, and her ability to do so clearly reflects her talent and her intelligence.
Reno, NV (PRWEB) March 9, 2007
Erica Olsen, an owner and strategic planning facilitator of M3 Planning in Reno has been named Entrepreneur of the Year by The Business Report of Northern Nevada (February 2007). In a selection based on vision, innovation, community involvement, employee initiatives, and overcoming adversity, Erica's character and commitment to success so impressed the judges that they commented, "She built a successful company out of a very non-tangible product, and her ability to do so clearly reflects her talent and her intelligence."
Under her guidance, M3 Planning is on an impressive growth curve and has been established as a resource center for everything related to strategy including strategic planning software, books, articles, workshops and facilitations. In fact, the latest version of their proprietary online software strategic planning system (http://www.mystrategicplan.com)] has just been released, and Erica has recently celebrated the publication of her new book, Strategic Planning for Dummies, which is available at major bookstores across the country and on M3 Planning's website (http://www.m3planning.com)]. Part of the national best-selling For Dummies brand series, her new book simplifies strategic planning and reveals how writing a strategic plan can actually be quick and simple - contrary to previous assumptions within the business world.
While her focus, passion and drive for success in the business services sector clearly won over The Business Report of Northern Nevada, Erica also leaves a positive impression with her clients. Bob Larkin, chairman of the Washoe County Board of Commissioners, who has worked with Erica during the development of a five-year strategic plan with the county adds, "There isn't a better person in the local business community to get this kind of recognition."
