Also check with your local SCORE group. That is basically an organization that is made up of retired CEO's and executives that are there to help entrepenuers get started. Another option is the State, I am not sure of other states, but Michigan has a division that will help you get started, they will assist you on your biz plan, meaning you write it, and they will review it and make suggestions. They are a great resource for us in Michigan.
I also have to ask, are you sold on the Southern Yankees ? There are other less expensive options available that can produce quality results. Just curious...
