The book has really motivated me and my roommate (she went out and picked up her own copy. She found it insightful as well!)
Thanks Gail for creating this 'guide'!
THANKS Mrs. Reid
One thing the book has impressed upon me is that the one necessity for any business, low-cost startup or otherwise, is the ability to get the word out about your business. Hence, no matter what you plan to sell (product or service), how you plan to sell it (home-based or outside of your home), or how much you plan to sell it for, Marketing/Advertising IS A MUST - and that, in itself, takes effort and $$$.
I gave the book 4 stars because although it gave specific TYPES (only 2-3 applied to me) of businesses one could start, I would have enjoyed detailed, business-oriented information such as taxes, insurance, etc., especially since the author is an accountant.
I do think the message: keep your costs low and profits high, which is sometimes forgotten by larger startups, should be remembered and this book will give you a lot of tips on how to do this the right way.
It is also a great source for specific business opportunities.
Keep up the good work, Gail and keep in touch,
Kind regards, Christian Cochard, Paris
