The recently revised and expanded edition of Home Business, Big Business: The Definitive Guide to Starting and Operating On-Line and Traditional Home-Based Ventures, by consultant and retired CEO Mel Cook, is aimed at readers who hope to follow in their footsteps.
Cook opens with short inspirational profiles of these and other formerly home-based high-achievers, and then lays out many of the basic details that can help one get from here to there. He touches on everything from initial planning and product/service pricing to daily operation and preparations for future growth. He also describes more than 100 work-at-home options, divided into categories like crafts, personal service, mail order, and manufacturing and repair, and has added a section about using the Net to launch and grow such enterprises. Final chapters deal with turnkey business ventures, legal considerations, opportunities for the elderly and disabled, and further resources. -- Howard Rothman
