From the Author:

Entrepreneurship starts with you - the entrepreneur - because every new business has someone whose energy, vision and passion changes it from an idea into reality. I have spent over 25 years either working with, or starting my own, new businesses and each one was unique. No cookie-cutter approach will work to start your business because you are not a cookie cutter person. For this reason, I wrote The Complete Idiot's Guide to Starting Your Own Business to help you find the right  business for you, to create a solid business plan that can withstand scrutiny and also to offer guidance that will help you get through the all-important first year.

The book contains a blend of practical advice, war stories and concepts
that will put the odds of successfully starting your own business on your side - not on the side of luck. Two complete business plans are included to give you a solid idea of what a viable plan actually looks like. You cannot succeed as an entrepreneur if you are unwilling to take risks and you are far more likely to succeed if you take smart risks. My goal with the book is to help you evaluate your situation against your idea and the marketplace so that any business risks you intend to take will support you, your family and your goals - making it a smart risk.

From the Back Cover:

Turn your small-business dreams into reality!

Starting and running your own business, where you run the show your way, isn't as far-fetched as yoiu might think. Many entrepreneurs are venturing out on their own, and you can too.

This book is full of tips for evaluating the marketplace, creating a winning sales plan, developing an effective accounting system, ans so much more, this helpful guide gives you the knowledge you need to successfully start the right business for you
