Being a writer is depicted in popular culture as a solitary endeavor whose success is, in large part, made up of chance and personal connections. But one leading business planning company is proud to announce increased support in the second half of 2014 for creative sole proprietors, including writers.

"The common image of a writer is someone struggling alone in an attic somewhere, suffering the agonies of writer's block," said Joseph Ferriolo, director of Wise Business Plans, which provides custom business plans for sole proprietors and companies of all sizes. "This may be true in some instances, but the most successful writers recognize that they are, themselves, a brand, and they treat their careers as a business venture, because that's what they really are."

Ferriolo said Wise has much to offer creatives and sole proprietors, including more than one size of plan and, as with all clients, the assistance of a professional, MBA-educated plan writer.

"If you want to write as a hobby, then it might be best to just treat the process casually," he said, "but if you're looking for economic independence and success you can build a full-time career upon, you need a professional road map toward thriving financially."

Wise can provide the assistance writers need to outline their own success stories.

"Before you sit down to write a novel, or a screenplay, or a blog post, you have some idea about the direction you want your words to take," Ferriolo said. "Don't treat your financial future with any less consideration."
