"After spending countless hours searching the internet for a business plan model, I was overjoyed to find Peter Spellman's Plan Your Band! eBook. It has been an invaluable resource for us in helping us negotiate our first distribution deal with a major. I recommend this resource to any band that hasn't employed the use of a business plan. Once having a solid business plan you will find that you have much more definition to your goals, aspirations and relationships in your business. Plan Your Band is a MUST HAVE resource."
