Not sure if this has been shared before, but http://www.monetizationlab.net/ is a site that allows you to find a business model and then ideas on how you can set up a transaction off of it.  

I recently watched this webinar (highly recommended) called Business Plans are Dead and in it, the presenter, Bob Caspe, says (paraphrasing here) that the more businesses you speak to, the more business models you are exposed to and the more business models you are exposed to the more likely you are to cross-pollinate business and transaction models for other startups/companies".  That really resonated with me so I figured I would share one resource for learning about business models - anyone have any other resources?
Too many founders wing it when it comes to financials and have no idea how to use basic modeling to drive strategy. In this course, we’ll teach you how to build a basic financial model, read financial statements, and understand cash flow, balance sheets, and income statements.

Two things to contribute to this discussion: 1. The book, “Business Model Generation”, is a great visual exploration of different business models and their application. I bought it but recently saw it at my local library. 2. I think the process of business planning is a good one to go through - attached is one I created for my daughter and their cousins making a booth at the local farmers market. This is probably all most businesses need to do to make sure everyone is on the same page, and revisiting it often, especially as part of a lean startup methodology, is a great way to ensure you have thought through all the different aspects of your pivot.
