Business writing does not come easily to many small business owners, but help is on the way. Helping business owners to improve their business writing skills has turned out to be a good business opportunity for one entrepreneur.

Fear of writing is as common as fear of public speaking, and many small business owners just don't have the training required to compose essential documents. For those reasons, among others, this is especially good news for small business owners and new franchisees.

"It's hard to overstress the importance of clear communication for small business owners," says Geri Stengel, founder of Ventureneer. "Yet many people dash off an email or memo without making sure that its meaning is clear. We're not offering high school English here, just tools that small business owners can use to ensure that what they mean is what they say."
