I am thoroughly convinced that LinkedIn is a great place to meet new people. My business adviser Dan Martin got me in touch with a number of people, including one gentleman in particular, Jeff Levy. After talking with Mr. Levy a bit, he told me about the book he co-authored with David Nilssen, titled Making the Jump Into Small Business Ownership.
It took me only about a week to get through the book, and it now has a special place on my bookshelf, right next to Strunk and White’s Elements of Style. I consider it about as indispensable.
