For anybody who wants to raise money for their new business, this book is a must read. I am toying with the idea of starting a IT consulting company and this book has forced me to really think things through. It is not easy to get a succesful venture started and it helps if you do all the hard work before you meet with potential investors.

OK ¿ so you want to start a business but you do not have a Mickey Goldmill 'Rocky Balboa¿s trainer in the Rocky movies' in your corner. Well, you can get the next best thing -- Ed Rogoff¿s ¿Bankable Business Plans.¿ Rogoff¿s ¿Bankable Business Plans¿ guides you through the fundamentals of building a plan, illuminates some all too common errors, as well as uncommon successes, provides useful exercises to sharpen your message, and, in general, challenges you to take a disciplined and comprehensive approach to pursuing your dream of starting your own business. Writing a business plan is like training to be a boxer -- you need a plan and you have to work at. So fire up the laptop, fire up your heart by watching the old Rocky trailer ('type in 'Rocky trailer 1' into Google and you will see YouTube of it), open up Rogoff¿s book and start typing! Good Luck!
