The Creative Entrepreneur: A Visual Guide to Business Planning

Hi Wenona, good review. As someone who trains people how to get going in business plans (and I used to deliver a one-day business planning workshop to artists in Devon, UK) I can confirm that the thing that takes the longest to begin with is to get people to unlearn all the bad stuff they have picked up about business planning and to think of it as an original and creative activity. The title of those workshops was “Business planning as an art form” and I generally found that once you liberated people from the bad stuff and enthused them with the possibilities of what they could do – they were fine and actually needed little help to get going.
