About the Author:

From Booklist:

Born in East Los Angeles, the son of Mexican immigrants, Barajas watched as his father poured all his time into a small business installing wrought-iron doors. It was backbreaking work, and his father had little time for family or fun as the years went on. Barajas got his MBA and started his own financial planning firm, and he dedicates himself to helping small-business owners climb out from under the pressures that prevent them from enjoying life. Although many people dream about the freedom and financial success that business ownership can bring, the reality is that self-employment can often mean longer hours and less income. Barajas provides valuable tools to help the self-employed move up the ladder to becoming true business owners and create a sustainable enterprise that will offer not only more income but also more free time for family and the enjoyment of life. The ideas presented are often simple but nevertheless effective in helping automate and maintain a healthy balance between business and pleasure. Siegfried, David
