Right Brain Business Plan: Giveaway

Jennifer Lee is the author of The Right-Brain Business Plan: A Creative, Visual Map for Success. (This Jennifer is not the author of Frozen, this Jennifer runs Artizen Coaching.)

51fqoGkYJxLIf you run your own business, you have either avoided business plans or mastered them. There’s not much room in between. Lee’s idea is that business plans are left-brain based and that makes them hard for right-brain people. So she wrote a book that helps right-brain people write that business plan.

The book is laid out with lots of color and worksheets (which you can download from her website.) Many of the steps look like art projects. If you like the idea of mind mapping, you will love this book!

She has a left-brain, logical approach (with process steps) on how to use the book and why you should have a business plan. Then she helps you do it, creative style.

Chapters in the book:

  • The Skinny on the Right-Brain Business Plan Process and Structure
  • Where Is Your Business Headed, and What Do You and Your Company Stand For?
  • It’s a Big World Out There–Where Do You and Your Business Fit In?
  • Find and Connect with Your Perfect Customers?
  • Develop a Financial Plan with Fun and Flair
  • Build a Creative Playground of Business Support So You Don’t Have to Go It Alone
  • Make Your Plan Real with Goals, Strategies, and Action Steps
  • Put the Finishing Touches on Your Right-Brain Business Plan
  • Keep Your Right-Brain Business Plan Alive

  1. I would love a chance to win this book. I started a business plan years ago and gave it up because it got too complicated. Maybe this right brained approach will help me to complete it.

  2. Appreciate you doing this, Quinn. I am right-brained, and the few times I had to write business plans for a company I worked for, were the most stressful times I can recall. Serious crying at home. Now I have a “sort-of” business from home, but have not attempted to do a business plan, so it is currently more of a hobby than a business. This could be a huge jump-starter!

  3. I NEED this book – desperately. And the timing of this giveaway, bringing it to my attention at this moment, is absolutely serendipitous! Perfect, even! Would love to win it – thanks for the chance, Quinn!

  4. I have wanted this book for a long time. It’s interesting because in some ways, it scares me. I know that if I win it, I have to move forward on things. There is an implied obligation. I’m up for that challenge.

  5. This book and its premise have interested me for years. I am one without a biz plan. Would love the book to help me with it. Thanks!

  6. I have been hearing good things about this book. I am toying with starting a business but keep dithering. Not sure if this book would help but I doubt that it would hurt 🙂 Thanks for all the book give aways you do and for your blog, it always makes my day to read it!

  7. It’s so kind of you to always give away books Quinn. Even though I would love to look at this book, I am sure there are others who would get a lot more use out of it so do NOT enter me in this drawing. I’m perfectly content being a retired artist with no business plans on the horizon!

  8. Sounds like fun – I read Robbie Fannings book about time management and getting things done, etc. that introduced me to the concept of mind-mapping way back then. Her books were all fantastic and every idea is helpful. I’m sure this book expands on that concept.

  9. Thank you for offering this book. As a retired Special Education teacher I continue to be fascinated and excited about the wonderful diversity of thinking styles that folks have. I find it encouraging that Jennifer Lee and her publisher expect there will be sufficient commercial interest to warrant her time and effort writing this book. It indicates a growing acceptance of a wider spectrum of intellectual approaches.

  10. Oh, I would love to win this book! I am leaving for 2weeks vacation on Tesday with no internet access (a REAL vacation! ;-)!), and this is definitively be the book I will delve into when I get back! Thank you is much!

  11. This book is on my (huge) book wish list so to win it would be fantastic. I have heard a lot about it and would very much enjoy gleaning some wisdom!
