While most small business books cover niche components of the start-up model, From Idea to Exit takes a more comprehensive approach, tackling the entire entrepreneurial journey from the initial seed idea through a well-planned exit strategy. Through a persuasive narrative, the author draws from his own success a practical call to action for those who dream of taking that first big step.

The spirit of adventure permeates this book as Jeff guides us through the entrepreneurial journey. For all of us restless souls eager to take that first big step, this is an invaluable map to guide the way.”—Mark Achler, senior vice president of new business, strategy, and innovation, redbox “If you are afraid of venturing out on your own, wonder if you have what it takes, read this book. Entrepreneurship is scary and thrilling all at the same time. This book will help you think about how to turn your business idea into an avocation that will support you. Jeff Weber understands the path you will need to take, and the fears you will need to overcome."—Jeffrey Carter, cofounder, Hyde Park Angels “From Idea to Exit is an absolute MUST-read for every entrepreneur and even intrapreneur working in corporate America! I am going to make it a requirement for all my mentoring clients. One of the key gifts I got from this book are the four phases going from innovation, start up, and running the business all the way through exit, along with the holistic approach Jeffrey Weber takes. I consider the formulas, checklists, exercises, and planning tools to be worth the investment in the book itself. In fact, I would say I would invest more than 10 times the actual price of the book just to get this information. Don't hesitate. Get From Idea to Exit. It is well written, comprehensive, and the number-one book I am recommending—period!”—Terri Levine, The Business Growth Mentor, best-selling author of Coaching Is for EveryoneAbout the Author:
