I loved this book from start to finish. After having a baby I did not want to go back to teaching. Mrs. Reid's chapter on tutoring was extremely helpful and I am on my way to do what I love independently, without politics, paperwork, No Child Left Behind, and behaviors we teachers have to deal with daily while teaching in a public school.

THANKS Mrs. Reid

I have been reading "Low-Cost Startups" for the past couple of days and it's really putting all the details into perspective for me. It has also given me an understanding of what I should be accomplishing first.

The book has really motivated me and my roommate (she went out and picked up her own copy. She found it insightful as well!)

Thanks Gail for creating this 'guide'!

I have owned my PR business for three years yet I still found this book The Complete Idiot's Guide to Low-Cost Startups to be extremely helpful. It's easy to to be passionate about your subject in the beginning but after years of sitting at a computer, enthusiasm starts to pale. This book got me fired up again and reminded me not to ignore the business side of running a small business. Five years is an important benchmark for start-ups and I feel this book will help me get there.

This book will be valuable for any new individual entrepreneur, at the startup stage and also after a few years of professional work !
I do think the message: keep your costs low and profits high, which is sometimes forgotten by larger startups, should be remembered and this book will give you a lot of tips on how to do this the right way.
It is also a great source for specific business opportunities.

Keep up the good work, Gail and keep in touch,
Kind regards, Christian Cochard, Paris

This has everything you need to start a low-cost business. The author gives practical advice about advertising, bookkeeping, marketing, estimating time costs, and billing. She also offered up some ideas for self employment that I haven't seen before that sound intriguing and fun. Everyone who is looking to start a small business or to augment their lifestyle with a second job, should read this book. This timely book couldn't have come at a better time!
