5.0 out of 5 stars Good business book March 19, 2013
By Kaye T
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read other books by this author that I thought were well done so when I saw this business book I didn't hesitate to pick it up as I love this topic. The books starts with the basic questions to determine if one is ready to start a business. It also covers the attitude and mentality required to be able to have success as a business owner. I think this is a great book for anyone interested in entrepreneurship.

5.0 out of 5 stars Detailed and well written book March 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This extraordinary book from Peter Osalor isn't just a lightweight inspirational guide, but a well written, fascinating insight into the business journey of an entrepreneur. From poverty in Nigeria to setting up international businesses, there is certainly no shortage of advice and guidance for anyone that it thinking of, or already running their own business. A must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A walkthrough guide to business planning March 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The great thing about this guide is that it literally forces you to walkthrough your own business plans and take a good hard look at yourself and what you think you can achieve.

Too many aspiring entrepreneurs fall afoul at this critical planning stage and this book is aimed at them.

This is the third book I have purchased from Peter Osalor and I haven't been disappointed. The guides are always thorough, succint to summarise the main points and filled with relevant experience.

This is an especially useful guide for new business owners.
