Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In Business for Yourself discusses the ins and outs of running a small business. In a chatty, conversational style, Williams focuses on the skills and attitudes a small business owner requires rather than on specific "how-to" advice. Especially interesting is his discussion on professional relationships with business associates such as bankers, lawyers, accountants, and employees, as well as family and friends. The personal help one can get from these individuals is often downplayed or not mentioned in small business texts. Both books are recommended for academic and public libraries: Beating the Odds as a complement to other small business titles and In Business for Yourself as extracurricular reading.

One of the best books out there on starting a business. This is not a get-rich-quick type book. Bruce tells it like it is--lots of hard work. I recommend it 100 percent

The best how to succed in business book I have ever read. This is a no nonsense, tell it like it is guide covering many crucial aspects of business ownership. Practical advice from first hand knowledge of someone who has been there and done that. No pie in the sky, you are guarenteed to make millions advice to be found here but plenty of good ideas and pitfalls to avoid with an amusing anectode or two sprinkled in for good measure. I read it before I started my own business and four and a half years into business ownership I am finally buying my own copy because I need it more now than ever.

Bruce Williams' book is simply a classic business primer. No pie in the sky here, just good, solid plain English advice about how to get it done. Bruce is not one of these professorial types who lectures about business with no practical experience. He's been there, done that. Far more useful than those Wall Street or academic jibberish books.

This is a great no nonsense overview which touches upon virtually all of the issues you need to be thinking about when going into busines for yourself. It's a good primer, an easy read, without getting overly technical.
One of the things I really appreciate about this book, is that Bruce Williams is realistic about being in business for yourself. He tells it like it is rather than espousing a lot of B.S. Mr. Williams has started several businesses of his own and his clear and to the point thoughts are conveyed well here.

As a big fan for years of Bruce Williams on the radio, his book is just as good.As a gentleman who attempted at business a couple times, and failed he offers great advice what not to do. Starting a business is a risky business. Its not for everyone. Everyone should read this book to determine if you know what you are getting into. The best advice I got from reading, was do not try to do everything yourself. If your weakness is math, hire an accountant. Selling, hire a sales manager. Advertising, hire a PR person. A great read and book to have nearby as a refernce book as you run your business. Thank you Bruce - "I wish you well good friend"
