About the Author:

Lisa Rogak has run her own country business since 1988. She is the author of more than 25 books and lives in rural New Hampshire.

Review:

Ever fantasize about escaping the big city congestion and moving to a home and new job out in the country? It's not just for farmers anymore. Rogak has been running her own country business for over ten years, and in The Complete Country Business Guide she not only shows readers that it's feasible - she also provides sound business advice for starting a rural business.

Written in a style that is easy to read, with a tone that is encouraging but cautious, this book does a good job of stressing the importance of doing one's homework before plunging ahead with a new business; advice that could save readers from serious and potentially costly oversights or mistakes down the road. -- ForeWord Magazine, March, 1999

For city dwellers seeking refuge from smog, rush-hour traffic and long supermarket lines, it's a romantic fantasy: owning a quaint bed-and-breakfast inn or a charming general store in a sleepy town where everybody knows your name. If you're wondering where to sign up, read Lisa Rogak's The Complete Country Business Guide: Everything You Need to Know to Become a Rural Entrepreneur, a look at the nuts and bolts of small-business ownership, village style. The book highlights real-life case histories of former city folk who tell what it took to dig into country soil. Running the gamut from specialty food manufacturers and furniture makers to entrepreneurs with more unusual ventures such as cat kennels and llama farming, each profile offers start-up cost estimates and resources for additional information. The solid advice Rogak offers should help ensure things go right. -- Entrepreneur's Business Start-Ups, September, 1998

In addition to offering tips on how to get your business off the ground, Rogak profiles people who are running successful rural businesses. She also offers pointers on marketing a country business, speeding up the fitting-in process and dealing with small-town government. -- Mountain Living, Fall 1998
