Here’s a book review I did on amazon.com
I’ve started a few small businesses that failed because of poor planning & structure.
Seeking for a change, I picked up this highly rated book on entrepreneurship to find out the essential skills and techniques needed to build a successful company.
Having finished this book, I’ve found what I’ve been searching for and realized my mistakes.
For example, I’m now aware that before I start my next company I need to develop a solid business plan, eliminate my debt, save up a year worth of operational cost and read this book again.
I really enjoyed reading this book since it’s simple, straight forwards and offers “Emerson’s Action Steps”, a list summarizing each chapter.
This book covers all the aspects of a start-up, from forming a life and financial plan to marketing and hiring employees.
I recommend “Become your own boss in 12 months” for anyone starting up a business, whether on-line or off-line.
Thanks Melinda Emerson for sharing your insightful knowledge to the world.
