9780595506514: Shoestring Venture: The Startup Bible

A Consultant in a Book
For the millions who start a new business every year on the barest of resources, Shoestring Venture: The Startup Bible is like hiring a high-level consultant to deal with the bewildering maze of issues from finance to marketing to technology that all entrepreneurs face. 

Every business is nothing but a series of decisions which can make or break the business. You could say that, if there's a science of business, it's the science of making good decisions. And every bootstrap entrepreneur faces the daunting task of making ALL the business decisions, any one of which could either doom the enterprise or catapult it to stratospheric success. That meas that every entrepreneur has to quickly get up to speed on every issue their business faces. 

Shoestring Venture: The Startup Bible is the most exhaustive set of practical resources collected to empower entrepreneurs to make the right decisions on a limited budget, from business concept to product development to Web marketing. We call a "consultant in a book," there to give considered and experienced answers to the infinite questions that come up. 

Shoestring Venture-The Start-up Bible
All entrepreneurs - even the smallest operating on the tightest of budgets - have the opportunity to build powerful start-up organizations without ever really having to walk out the front door. Using global communications and data networks, even bootstrap entrepreneurs can staff an entire organization with every human resource and skill they need at rock-bottom prices.

It's the magic of outsourcing. For, you see, globalization ain't just for the big kids. We often hear about how globalization exports jobs overseas, but we rarely hear about the opportunities globalization creates for even the smallest of businesses, opportunities that allow even tiny businesses to compete with the majors on a global scale. In short, anyone can run a virtual organization using only a desktop or laptop computer. 

Shoestring Venture: The Startup Bible gives bootstrap entrepreneurs all the resources they need to build truly effective startups using the magic of outsourcing and off-shoring.

From the Author:

Ever since I owned my first laptop, I dreamt of having a virtual office and, from that office, running a company that could run itself--everything from accounting to manufacture to delivery. All I would have to do is fire up my laptop every morning and "go to work." I made that dream come true. And I learned that there is nothing in this Internet-connected world to stop anyone else from realizing the same dream.
It was not, however, a dream that was easy to realize . . . at first. It took amountain of digging and research to find all the tools and services I wouldneed to make it work. It also required making mistakes, many of them costly,all of them aggravating, and a few that came close to ruining me.
So I compiled all my research and packed it in with all my experience, good and bad, into this reference guide for other entrepreneurs. Whether you're realizing the same dream entirely green or thoroughly tested and experienced, our goal in this book is to reduce as much of the clutter--and as much of the hard knocks--for you and other entrepreneurs as possible.
You may be a single individual who has always wanted to run a complete business from your home with just some computer equipment.Or you may already be running a successful business but want to know how to exploit the outsourcing opportunities in software, marketing,or manufacturing that can increase your profitability or decrease your headaches.Or you may be running a start-up with a small staff and limited resources wondering how to get more with less.
In any case, this book's information will help you understand the unlimited opportunities our brave new wired world offers you. This book,however, serves as more than just a reference; it will help you understand and evaluate the strategic business decisions you will face in outsourcing much of your business.
I never set out to write an extraordinary book, just a useful one. Almost everything I learned, I gleaned from newspaper, magazine, and Internet articles. Where I can, I give credit to these sources. But much of this book comes from my own experience with Web-based and offline business; all the best research, after all, is information filtered through practical experience.
While I cannot promise you success, my hope is that this book will make your way much easier.
Fondly,
Steve Monas
