*Disclosure - I am mentioned in this book

I met Ebong when he was looking for entrepreneurs to interview for this book. Months later, when I read the finished product, I was sincerely blown away. Where most small business authors are extremely vague and offer obtuse instruction, Ebong gives you the detailed points. He has a way of giving you the exact information that one needs in order to seriously begin the entrepreneurial process. I specifically love that how he Skips the flowery jargon and gives you the kick in the pants that you need in order to move forward.

As a business owner, I am constantly receiving a barrage of requests for coaching and advice. Now that Ebong's book is out, I just give them a copy (I bought a bunch). It saves me time and gives them exactly what they need.

A clear, no fluff, handbook covering a variety of issues budding as well as seasoned entrepreneurs face. I particularly enjoyed the chapters on fears and doubts, becoming an expert in your niche and raising money. This is a book I will refer to often. Highly recommend !

Starting a business? Then, Ebong Eka's "Start Me Up!" is ALL the guide you'll need. Mr. Eka covers every topic imaginable including marketing, branding, social media, etc. Very reader/user friendly. Have given several copies to people transitioning from working for someone to working for one's self and each and every recipient has counted it as THE MOST VALUABLE resource in their "begin-again" library. Strongest positive recommendation for "Start Me Up!" by Ebong Eka!

my interest in Ebong's book was part personal and part professional. i have written very few reviews on here but "Start Me Up" deserves a word of mouth endorsement (and this is an unpaid endorsement). i will cut to the chase as Ebong often does in his book. And in fact, that is one of the virtues - this is an easy read; he doesn't over-reach or try to talk over the reader. what's most impressive is that you do not need to be an accountant or economist or have a finance degree or even own your own business to follow along.

The substance of the book can be easily applied to those outside of those sectors and even in your life outside of business. Ebong's upbeat, optimistic personality comes through loud and clear, making more enjoyable than most so-called business books. I highly recommend.

This book gave me a better understanding of what I needed to do to get started without spending a boat load of money! As an entrepreneur myself, starting your own business (especially for the first time!) can be nerve racking but this book makes it really easy to understand everything and relieves a lot of stress.
