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!!!!

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.

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 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.

Bootstrapping 101 is not a theoretical book written by a professor (no offense), but rather a tactical book written by a guy who has been in the trenches, lived it and achieved tremendous success. This book opened my mind to non-traditional ideas of how to do more with less and ultimately to reduce the entrepreneur's risk. I had the privilege of attending a speaking engagment by the author; Bob Reiss and was on the edge of my seat as he told his compelling story. The R&R story in the book is fascinating and worth the price of the book in itself.

This is not some 'how to' manual, it is far, far, more. Bob Reiss is inspiring, informative, and insightful. This very successful entrepreneur shares his wisdom and experience. It is an amazing source of knowledge and education in all aspects of entrepreneurialism. If you want to start a business, you must read this book first!

I wish I could articulate as well as Bob expresses his ideas about making businesses successful with limited cash. The book lists out tips that are practical and works in field. I would recommend you read this book and it will change the way you think about running a business. Good luck with your business and Bob, thanks for a geat book!
