You have a great new business idea, something so perfect for you that it lights you up and puts a grin on your face. Your idea is compelling, a dream that could set you free in many ways. This is big, isn't it? This could put you in control of your time, your choices, your future, and your life. 
 
So, what happens next?
 
Do you know what to do with this idea, how to translate it into a successful business? Many people think the first step toward starting a new business is to immediately get ready to open one, but it's not. You need to know a lot more before you open your doors. How do you set it up? What are the right steps? How much money will you need? Do you know whether your idea will work? Can it give you a good life and the rewards you desire? How will you gain enough confidence in this idea that you can move forward with it without holding back?  
When you read this book, you will come to know the answers to all these questions, plus many more that you haven't even thought of yet. 
 
Dance instructors sometimes place cutouts of steps on the floors of their studios to help students learn a particular dance step sequence. This book will give you the "steps on the floor" to follow as you explore what your business idea would look like in action, and what it would need to be stable and successful.

What Readers Say: 
"This book is a 'must read' for anyone considering starting a business; it will give you a good idea of what it will take to make your business dream work. It's also a really fun read.
As an entrepreneur for forty years, I wish I had this information prior to starting my own business. It surely would have saved me lots of time and money."

"This is an extremely valuable book that walks people through all the things they need to consider when evaluating whether to take their great idea for a business into the real world. The breadth of Hickok's knowledge is evident in every chapter of the book, which covers how to turn your business idea into an actual business, common mistakes to avoid when starting a business, and how to effectively market and sell what you offer so you make decent money.
He also has a no-nonsense yet friendly writing style that makes for an extremely enjoyable reads like having a very smart best buddy who's cheering you on while also looking out for your best interests."
