As a small business owner who has never run a business before, I picked up this book to see how I could grow my business with little starting cash. This book provides helpful tips that I never would have thought of if I hadn't read it in here. These tips are practical real life tips that can be used by any business owner to grow their business.

I have never had to keep cash flow statements or manage workers until now, and reading this book helps me to keep track of my numbers and keep me in the right frame of mind to run my business on a daily basis. In my opinion, every start-up, entrepreneur and business owner should buy this book and read it over and over and over.

WOW! Such a simple expression, but perfect for this book. Bob has put together a masterpiece and I was fortunate enough to be front and center for a presentation from him last Saturday. His story is motivating to say the least and his book is just the tipping point of what resources are all around us as base level entrepreneurs. Whether it be paperback or e-book GET THIS BOOK!!!!! You will not be disappointed and only be scratching your head as to why you didn't think of these tactics earlier. Personally, I was losing confidence in myself but after reading Bootstrapping 101 I have renewed confidence and motivation to make it happen!!!!

This book was assigned reading, which usually means it isn't any good, so I approached with caution. After reading the book I was quite surprised. Bob is an entrepreneurial genius. He has down to earth, practical ways of adding value to your start-up without spending money (or very little money). I have also had the privilege of seeing Bob speak in person, which further added to my opinion of this book. He has spent most of his life as an entrepreneur and speaks from years of experience.

Purchase this book, it will be worth every penny.

This is a great book for anyone who is thinking of starting a business or has a startup business. Bob Reiss is a "serial entrepreneur" - he has started lots of companies, works hard and is not afraid to make mistakes - actually he invites mistakes because that is where the best learning happens. Bob writes in a style that is easy to read, compartmentalizes the various fascets of running a business in digestible segments. Like other reviewers have said - I am sure I will refer to this book many times again - I am using it as a small business "workplan"...and have given 2 copies away to friends as well. Thanks so much Bob- this is a real gift - and love the Blogs too!.

I came to entrepreneurship later in life and have a fairly conservative outlook in terms of how much money I wanted to invest and spend to get my new business going and growing. In 'Bootstrapping 101', Bob Reiss provided me with some very useful tips, strategies and tactics to help me reach my entrepreneurial goals without breaking the bank. His writing is personal and accessible, and I particularly appreciated his style in the annex on cash-flow statements -- not the easiest subject for a non-math major! Overall, I highly recommend this book -- it's the type of book I will pull down from the shelf to re-read for inspiration, insight and to help me refocus.

Amazing book, I am really enjoying it. If you are a small business owner and have limited resources, I think this book should become your daily brainstorming friend. I think the author did a good job sharing his amazing experiences inside. The strategy detailed inside are those that you do not learn in school. years of experiences. Thanks for writing this.

This book was an interesting and easy read. The author did a great job of describing how to start a business with minimal financial investment. He drew on his own experience and gave practical suggestions on how his strategy could be applied to other situations.
