People starting out in business tend to seek step-by-step formulas or rules, but in reality there are no magic bullets. Rather, says veteran company-builder Norm Brodsky, there's a mentality that helps street- smart entrepreneurs solve problems and pursue opportunities as they arise. Brodsky shares his hard-earned wisdom every month in Inc. magazine, in the hugely popular "Street Smarts" column he cowrites with Bo Burlingham. Now they've adapted their best advice into a comprehensive guide for anyone running a small business.

Henni, the scribe of Stella Street (also the tallest girl in her new school) tells everything that happened when the new unfriendly neighbours (from hell) moved into 45 Stella Street. From the moment the newcomers they nicknamed The Phonies cruised down friendly old Stella Street in their silver Bentley turbo, there was trouble.
