The Entrepreneur's Road Map to Business Success is a book that inspires and leads the reader through the many steps of starting and operating a business. With elegant simplicity and clarity, it covers how to decide which business to start, how to plan, market, finance, manage, sell, and avoid detours. In a world where the entrepreneur often feels like a lone traveler on an uncertain road, this book is the road map that he or she will consult over and over again to stay on course. It looks and reads in a refreshingly different way from most business books: from the vividly colorful cover that suggests adventure and invites exploration...to the text that reads more like a novel than a business book...to the chapter summaries that focus attention on key points...to the helpful checklists and resource lists.
