After I settled in on the business idea I wanted to pursue (more on the actual business idea in a future blog) I knew that I needed to write a business plan. Tired of reading book after book about actually writing a plan and getting nowhere I decided to look for a business coach to help me get started. I remember searching for things like "business plan Chicago" and other similar searches until I came across Barry Moltz at http://www.barrymoltz.com/ and decided to contact him to talk business plans. After having a brief lunch meeting with him I decided he was the guy to help me - he was easy going, he was an entrepreneur, and was in the midst of writing a book on business - seemed like a good start. Links to his books are below as well as couple other interesting books on business and innovation. More to come...
