I am a math person and I am also big on real-world examples. You'll find plenty of both in this book. There is a LOT of sage advice; if you can't find ten nuggets or more here, then you are destined for failure (and it can never be blamed on Bridger, as he's outfitted the PRE-business owner with myriad suggestions, strategies, how-tos, examples, etc.).
Well done. I would recommend this book heartily to anyone in the position of planning to start a business, no matter what kind. Such a read will prepare you tenfold over your competitors and help you survive the dreaded first year.
This book is packed full of really engaging information from professionals who know how it all works. If you read this book and implement even half of the advice they have outlined, then you will be in a much stronger position.
After reading this book, I'm not going to go back and do a bit of an overhaul in my business. Unfortunately, this book has shown me that there are a few flaws in my current business world. The beautiful thing is that it's quite clear how to fix them. Better to learn from the professionals rather than not at all.
But this isn’t just a dry “how-to” manual that will collect dust on your virtual shelf; rather it engages the reader with its easy-to-read format and non-technical style that encourages would-be business owners on their journey to success. The links to websites and other resources detailed within the book make it a valuable resource to those considering a new business venture or to existing business owners who are looking for ways to strengthen their business plan and/or marketing efforts. Although the examples given are from the UK, the information provided is universal and can be applied to business start-ups anywhere. This is a book I wish I had read before starting my own business. I highly recommend it.
