With The Complete Idiot's Guide to Starting a Home-Based Business, you get expert, savvy advice on how to make that leap into a home-based startup with ease. This book contains information on launching your business online and how ecommerce isn't the wave of the future - it's how things are being done right now -electing the perfect venture, getting customers and keeping them, and much more.
Seeking a book that would give me details of starting my own business, I was disappointed. I suppose if you're looking for a real "Idiot's Guide," this book might be it. I purchased it because I've read other Idiot's Guides and enjoyed the detailed information. One might say, "You should have known better." I guess so.
IF you're looking for a "Fast" overview, this book is it. Don't look for the Step-by-Step details of getting your business off the ground. Fore example: The book mentions getting a Tax ID number EIN, but it doesn't ouline step 1 then two. Maybe I'm looking for too much.
If you know nothing about business, this book might be for you. If you looking for great detail, keep looking. If you want an overview and suggestions for starting various businesses, this might be for you.
I give it 3 Stars because it's a good over view, but if it gave more details, I would have given it 4 Stars, 5 if it had links and forms.
