I'm finding this information indispensable for thinking about some upcoming projects. It's so much common sense. There's sections on everything from intellectual property rights, to business plans, to website building. Highly apparent that the author knows how to make sure a project can succeed right from the start, without wasting a lot of time on dead ends.
The most useful part of the book for most readers will be the sections on market research and product planning. It will help immensely to make sure that consumers will be interested in your idea before you are already trying to sell it. Unfortunately so many of us get wound up in our projects without considering if it's really marketable. Thi book can give you a method to do your own research on the idea and decide if it's ready for market, if it needs adjustments, or if you want to go in another direction entirely.
Packed with helpful links to sites and services, this book is a must read for the ambitious self-starter and many small business owners.
As an entrepreneur, and owner of multiple businesses, I can tell you that this book touches on some of the most critical topics to starting your business (and protecting yourself). I know from experience, and not doing some of the suggestions in this book, that you can get burned by simply not knowing all the ins and outs (for instance insurance.....read the insurance section and always have Employment Practice Liability Policies).
I wish I would have read this book 10 years ago, it would have saved me over 50k (on the insurance piece alone)!
The concepts about determining if there is a market for your product, prior to creating it are priceless. If you are starting a business, get it right from the start. Buy this book!
I have had experience starting two other online software as a service companies beginning in the late nineties. I am just now getting ready to launch my third online software company and I found very solid and practical advice in this book regarding how to go about validating your product idea and your potential customers. The exercises do take time, but it is an easy and concise read.
