Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Several years ago I decided to help a friend start a small business.   We hired a couple of people to help with the sales and marketing and operations aspects of the business.  We strongly believed in what we were doing and had tremendous passion for the business, but the sales weren't coming.  Meanwhile, the bills kept mounting through investing in inventory, marketing, and payroll. As the bills continued to mount my friend and I became increasingly frustrated with the business and each other. After spending a lot of time and money on the business I ended up shutting the business down and in the process lost not only the time and money, but also a good friend.
This was a painful experience for me and unfortunately a story that happens all too often.  I wrote 12 Reasons Not to Start Your Own Small Business to help others gain a gut-check on whether starting a small business is right for them.  My sincere hope is that these 12 lessons will help you truly decide if starting a small business is in your future.
Best - Lonnie
