Mark Csordos launched his business with only $2,500 and zero business experience. Less than two years later, after a rocky start, he was featured in The New York Times and Vogue, trumpeting his achievements. After selling his business four years later, Csordos recorded what he had learned from his accomplishments - and challenges. In Business Lessons for Entrepreneurs Csordos covers the nitty-gritty realities of entrepreneurship: People will lie to you, love your family but don't work with them, the power of goal setting, charge what you're worth, and many other key topics. A must-read for practicing and potential entrepreneurs, this valuable book acts as a mentor for budding business owners, offering the straightforward advice Csordos wished he had received before starting his company.
