It’s a competitive world out there and running your own small business is far more difficult than most people think.
A Pocket Guide to Small Business Success is aimed at anyone thinking of starting their own company, those that have recently started it and the owners of established businesses that have stagnated and are feeling stuck in a rut. Punchy, easy to read, direct and to the point, it costs less than a couple of pints of beer and can be read in a similar amount of time. It covers all aspects of small business life, from the initial idea to raising money, getting the right people, managing the daily grind and then selling it at the end of the journey.
It is real-life, on the ground brass tacks and a million miles from the theoretical rah-rah business books readily available. A must for the pocket of all budding entrepreneurs, both young and old, and for those already running a small business.
Take his advice - it comes from real experience.
Rob has written a straight-forward and practical guide for anyone wanting to launch a small business (I knew the minute he suggested you should cut all your revenue projections in half -- he's right!). Please take to heart the lessons and advice he shares -- it comes from someone who has been where you're about to go -- and it will save you time, money, headaches, and possibly your life. Best of luck on your entrepreneurial journey.
