The book contains a wealth of information and ideas on starting a small business to help the entrepreneur become a viable and successful business owner. The authors of the book cover a wide range of topics including - the entrepreneur verses the employee - do you have what it takes to run a business (understanding your skill sets) - your motivation for starting a business - choosing a business - developing a business plan - and financing for the business among other things.
The book is great in covering the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and addresses the challenges that most new entrepreneurs face when starting a business. I promise that this book will give you a great overview of what you're getting yourself into! The better educated you are the higher your success rate!
As a business coach myself, I will be recommending this book to all of my clients who have an interest in pursuing small business ownership opportunities. The book is well written, easy to follow, easy to comprehend, and it's interesting to read.
Making the Jump is a very handy reference book. I could see entrepreneurs regularly reaching for this book off of their bookshelf for help in brushing up on the basics.
This book is a pretty fast read with a ton of relevant real world info. The book has everything you need to know about starting a small business.
Before "making the jump" into starting your own small business, there is so much that needs to thought about and understood. This book moves front and center as a must read "text book" before that journey begins! This book feels as though it was written with the intent of educating you on the numerous issues that must be thoroughly understood prior to making a major lifetime decision - owning and operating your own business.
The logical fears of entering into a new business can be a very daunting - especially if you have little history in the entrepreneurial world (which is most of us). This book softens those fears through solid, basic information, presented in a logical, linear and comforting manner. I was left with the feeling that if I had reasonable personal tenacity and could work in a focused, disciplined manner, I would absolutely succeed!
This book eases you into the transition of business ownership, by describing both the challenges and the joys of owning your own business, taking the big surprises out of the equation. You could read a collection of many other business books, assembling parts from each to help you understand your business ownership journey, or just read this one book and get it all!
