Since TBers come in all shapes and sizes, I thought I'd see what advice could be found with regard to putting together a business plan. I have an idea for a hotel, in a resort area, that's unique without being TOO niche, and I'd like to put together a no-kidding business plan, to actually get my foot in the door to the world of venture capital investors. I have connections to people with the means and business acumen, but I'd rather present them with a professional plan than a vague idea sketched out on a napkin, you know? I'm digging around online, and will ultimately end up going to a professional, but does anyone here have experience in business planning? How about the TB small-business owners, any of you have advice? Since I'm a veteran, I have options out there through SBA as well, and wouldn't hesitate to take advantage of them, as well. (Note: I'm not expecting all the answers to come from TB, I'm just looking for anyone who had experienced this and can inform/warn me of things they wish they had known). Thanks in advance.
