Extremely detailed

I feel as though the author nailed every single thing you could imagine when it comes to starting a business. The author pretty much sets you up with everything you need right at your finger tips without leaving anything out.
The book touches on all aspects in great detail explained in technically terms for the more advanced along with using everyday comparisons for those needing deeper explanation.
You will definitely walk away with a greater understanding of how, what, where to start, and all other thoughts and ready to get started with confidence!

Interesting start to learning about Small business

I have been going back and forth the last couple years with looking into how to run my own business/earning income at home and thought I would look into this because I have no business background at all accept for an accounting class and belonging to a business group in college. I was curious if this audible book would have what I was looking for. It does help with set up and what to look for with customers, marketing... I think I am looking more for simple company owned entrepreneurial opportunities using social media, but this book does explain how to go about how to choose an idea or product, getting investors, getting customers, using marketing... that I have been confused about. This is an audible file, so you need to like listening to a book. I am more visual, so probably would go for an ebook instead and it is hard to listen with the kids around. I also don't tend to remember what I am listening to and would like to refer back to what I read. It does include a pdf you can print out for each chapter to take notes and refer back to main points. There are also charts to help you lay out everything. It includes an area with definitions, which was helpful because I found myself not understanding quite a bit of the terminology used while reading. A man reads this audible book. He is very clear and interesting to listen to based on it being a business book. ;) This book is for people who aren't looking to getting rich or making tons of money at first. It is for the smaller business and is to help out make your goals so you can grow. I haven't listened to the whole book yet, so I can't comment on everything, but it is supposed to take about 7 hours of your time.

great book to start or further your business

I have had a couple businesses over the years and made a little money here and there. Now I want to continue my business I have of selling items I acquire on eBay and other avenues. I wanted more information to find out how to better what I already have. I came across this book and found it talked about a few issues I have already had like learning to find out who my customers were, what they wanted to buy and some other key issues. This book gave me a few new ideas and helped answer some of those questions and more. It really has a world of information that I learned a lot from. Some areas I thought I knew about but I found out more with this book. I think I have learned a few new bits of info to work with that I can use to help grow and expand what I have and do.
