Born out of transformational tragedy, Plan Canvas was founded by Jon Umstead, a business consultant, executive and author of the book Business is ART (Articulate – Revise – Track).
The suicides of a friend (David), an employee (Tom) and Jon’s nephew (Nathan) had one thing in common – all 3 of these individuals felt overwhelmed and alone.
That’s when Jon decided to put his education and experience leading and growing businesses to use by focusing on the success of others – so that others would not feel so overwhelmed and alone.
We want freelancers, entrepreneurs, business owners, and organizational leaders to have access to an on-online community experience. A place to help and to get help. A place to commiserate and to share. A comfort in knowing that they aren’t alone. A community to help lighten the load and drive greater success.
That’s what Plan Canvas is all about. Your success is our mission.
A Note from Our Founder
I highly encourage you to discover your own sense of purpose now. Don’t do what I did. Don’t wait for tragedy to strike in order to figure it out. The Personal Plan available in Plan Canvas is a great way to start. Whether you subscribe to Plan Canvas or not…please, please, please…heed this advice.
