"Even though we live in the most affluent country in the world, where most people earn and spend a fortune in the course of their working lifetimes, why is it that the majority end up dependent on Social Security, pensions and relatives when they retire?" asks Brian Tracy in his book, Getting If you're tired of the daily grind—commuting, long hours, day care expenses—and have been considering starting a home business, then Start Your Own Home Business...In No Time, by Carol Anne Carroll, is a must-read for you. Right from the introduction, Carroll gives you helpful instructions, ranging from "Who should read this book" to "How this book is organized."
Each chapter of Start Your Own Home Business is packed with useful information for any potential entrepreneur. Topics include "Exposing Myths of Self-Employment" and extensive information on developing a business plan. Within each chapter, icons containing side-notes address some of the most common questions building entrepreneurs have. For example, an icon entitled "your budget" might make mention of an important aspect of your business that should considered when developing a budget, and the icon entitled "watch out" offers warnings for possible pitfalls you might face, such as avoiding jealousy if you are establishing your business prior to leaving your current job. The guide is also filled with tips on varying subjects, as well as "to do lists" for each stage of your business. Worksheets, lists and charts are plentiful and easy-to-read, and can help the novice entrepreneur start a business off on the right foot.
