Seeking Successful Biz Owners in Chicagoland

I'm seeking a successful businessperson in the Chicagoland area to act as mentor to me and my business partner. We both have well-paying corporate jobs, but we are looking for someone who owns or has owned business(es) to take us under her/his wing and show us the ropes. I foresee lunches, dinners, and get-togethers to casually discuss business ideas, financing, marketing, and interesting anecdotes.
My partner and I seek understanding and guidance in creating, buying, and maintaining businesses that require tangential management for moderate cashflow.
As a mentor, we see you as an individual that wishes to share your knowledge or groom someone to take over your business(es).
I look forward to hearing from you.

Buying a franchise is buying a name

Goodwill, sometimes management and accounting help, and usually marketing and operational help. A franchisee benefits from the knowledge of the franchiser. The learning curve is shortened.
There are many different levels of franchise, some more strict than others on operations, etc.
All of these things would cost an independent business owner a good bit of money. It's all a matter of deciding if it is cost effective for you, and if you have enough prior business knowledge in the industry to make it a go without a franchise, or if you need the help.
