5.0 out of 5 stars Good ideas for small pocketbooks November 14, 2011
This is not a book on how to start a business, although it offers some cursory advice and a comprehensive resource list for the budding entrepreneur. It is a great book if you are looking for business ideas that you can launch on a shoestring budget; there are 55 ideas in all.
From wedding planner, to taxidermist to dog breeder, Cheryl Kimball has taken each business and provided a checklist for analyzing the efficacy of the business for your particular situation. She includes categories such as how the business will impact your homelife,space planning, equipment/tools needed, marketing suggestions, expansion possibilities and additional things to consider. She also rates each business by dollar signs to indicate start-up costs. One $ equals $1500 or less, $$ equals $1500 - $3000 startup and $$$ equals $3000 to $5000. I will definately recommend this book to my clients who are considering starting a business on the side, or on a very small scale.

Too much of it does not apply any more. Do not waste your money. You can do better just googling for tips.

5.0 out of 5 stars Business Ownership Ideas May 10, 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Books such as 55 Surefire Homebased Businesses; You Can Start Under $5,000 by Entrepreneur Press & Cheryl Kimball fills a thinking outside the box need in a media market where there is an abundance of articles on cutting back on one’s current income (as a way towards attaining financial freedom) but scarce on legal ways to increase financial net worth on a budget. There is an abundance of fascinating home based business ideas in this book such as interior decorator, massage therapist, home inspection, personal concierge, event planning, gift basket service, daycare, and pet sitting. There are information snapshots into how the business affects a person’s living residence, things to consider, how you will spend your day, and expansion possibilities (such as the case study for marketing copywriter on pages 176-178).

2.0 out of 5 stars Bought as a gift from someone who requested it. ... February 2, 2015
By Ron
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought as a gift from someone who requested it. Many ideas have been eclipsed by new technologies. It's okay as fodder for brainstorming, but you will not find this on Elon Musk's shelf (I think). Find it through your local library before you buy.
