Any advice on giving me a push?

Hello everyone. I'm pretty good at creating business plans, I have quite a few. I have one that I created in graduate school that actually need to be implemented asap for veterans, an integrated behavioral health clinic. I want a partner and advice. Anyone suggestions?

Hi Risa,

I would look for mentors who have done what you are trying to do.

1) Perhaps, you know people in your industry who have expertise you require. Reach out to them on LinkedIn and ask to help you. Usually people are happy to mentor a new practitioner in the filed.

2) Ask the people you know for recommendations or introductions to those who they think can help you and give you advice.

They might also be knowledgeable about what kind of partner you should be looking for.

Good luck.

Hi Risa,

I am linking some small business resouces below that you may find helpful. Unfortunately ACP's mentorships can not be considered business partnerships with your business and your mentor.
