Thank you

Solid book. I wouldn't take it as word of god but as a reference tool. You know those days where you are trying to figure out things such as "should I saturate a certain market with advertising or should I try to go broad and appeal a little to everyone " well it doesn't give you the exact answer but it will give you more information so you can feel more confident in your choice. I will be keeping this on my "frequently used" shelf.

perfect book

Excellent book. It's easy to follow. I loved the real life examples. It starts from the beginning, each chapter building on the last one. It lays out each of the pieces of a strong foundation for any small business.

My favtourite book.

I’m glad this is an e-book so I can have access to it anywhere. This book is very detailed and gives you the layout from A-Z on how to start and what it takes to start a small business. This book really made me think about how much dedication and focus it would take to start my own small business. I enjoyed reading this book and I would recommend to anyone that is thinking of starting a small business of their own.

Steps to Becoming an owner

I don't think every business owner being an accountant might help either Have a knowledge is very important and beneficial. There are certain steps that have to be taken to establish business and this book is extremely handy in explaining how to handle finances.It is a very well written book and explains from setting up a business to keeping a track of money coming and going.I really like it and I highly recommend it.
I was provided this book for free in return for my honest opinion.

Not much more you pack into 45 minutes.

Great intro read. Not in depth about any single topic but the author lays out very well the major steps and subjects you need to consider when starting a new business.
