The book then provides a framework for helping you choose among those potential businesses.
This book is for you if:
* Youve been saying, "Someday, Id like to own my own business."
* One of the things stopping you from launching your own business is that you arent sure which business to start.
* You have a few serious ideas for different businesses but dont know how to choose one and get going.
* You have absolutely no idea which business to start; you dont know which businesses would suit youyour needs, personality and interests, financial situation and goals.
* Youve had hundreds of ideas for new businesses but need help figuring out which ones to eliminate.
* You have an idea for a business but you want to make sure its the right one before you take the leap and make the commitment.
