Let's get the usual disclaimers out of the way. I have known Paul and Sarah Edwards for a long time, both personally and professionally, and one of the reasons for maintaining these relationships is that I admire what they do, how they do it, and how they love to share it. And, this latest book, Home-Based Business for Dummies, is only one example of my admiration.

When I found out that Paul and Sarah were authoring yet another edition of this book, I could not wait to see it. I followed their journey of helping people achieve self-actualization for over twenty years, and I can tell you that they worked hard to make Home-Based Business for Dummies the most complete reference on the subject.

The book has several beginnings, and the one I truly like is the section titled "Taking the Home-Based Business Quiz." That section alone, with its questions focused on what each of us who starts a business needs to ask, is worth the price of the book. It asks you to look at and evaluate your strengths and potential weaknesses and your readiness to get started.

Another section of the book goes into the choices that you need to make about the nature of your business, and what you can start right in your garage as did the good people who started Hewlett-Packard, Apple, Amazon, and others, to buying an existing business or franchise, and more, and includes advice on identifying the best option for you..

Chapters 3 and 4 detail the ABCs of starting the business, and includes just about everything you need to cover to make it a success, including words to the wise about what financing you should consider, and some sound advice on how to get it.

A super overview of the subject, this book helps me check every so often to see if I'm covering all bases. I found the pages on making the web work for you to be especially useful. The book sits on my buddy shelf--books that bail me out when I have a question or issue.

Format: Paperback
Someone gave me this book just when my energy for my whole project was flagging. It was either get going or give up my idea. This book got me off the stick at warp speed rate. It was just what I need to know about internet marketing, how to spend my little bit of start up money wisely, how to get the website I needed, plus an acknowledgement that we are in the worst of hard times. The info on good businesses during bad times was extremely useful. I found exactly what I needed to know about legal, tax, and accounting issues. Everything was simply and clearly stated, including subjects that I never thought I'd come to terms with, ie. how much to charge, taxes and deductions. understand. Good information. Well worth the money.
