101 Businesses... is divided into two sections. In the first section, Janal offers his readers a number of compelling reasons why one ought to open up shop on the Internet. Some reasons to consider are the reaching out to a worldwide market, to do business with an affluent market, no barriers of time zones, being open twenty-four hours a day, beating the competition to new markets because they are not online, very low startup costs, and little or no rent payments to make. Janal proceeds to outline the basics of getting started on the Internet, how to find your way around, and how to conduct your business. To his credit, Janal is brief and to the point when he needs to be, saving the greater portion of the book for other important matters.
The second section of the book, which I consider to be the heart of the publication, deals with the kind of business opportunities that exist on the Internet and how some folks have set up shop. Chapter-by-chapter, Janal discusses a number of creative business opportunities, such as computer and service-related work, and then provides solid case studies of those who have braved the waters, so to speak. Complete with names, addresses, phone numbers, URL's, and Web pages, Janal provides his readers with the insight that few previous publications have brought to light. Janal asks a number of penetrating questions of those who have already set up shop on the Internet that hit right at the heart of conducting business.
Janal breaks new ground in the direction of Internet business publications with this book. It is one thing to read about how to conduct business on the Internet and actually speaking with those who have been there. According to Janal, we ought to learn from the experiences of others, whether positive or negative. They have sound advice to offer! I hope Janal and other writers will continue developing this trend. Janal's book is well thought out and written. It will help many, including college students, who want to start their own businesses but who are in need of the encouragement of others. Put Janal and his case studies to work for you!
Instead, you should buy my new book, "Dan Janal's Guide to Marketing on the Internet." It is up-to-date and you'll benefit from it!
