From the Inside Flap
From the Back Cover
Let's look at a few statistics from the US Census Bureau.
Small businesses consists of approximately 30 million hires over 50% of the work populations (120M) people. 65% of new jobs are created. 52% or more are homebased, which is over $990 billion of revenue.
I hope this gives you some motivation and a reason why you should start your small business, but let's face it: being self employed is not for everyone.
I know that as a woman entrepreneur, it can be very difficult, confusing, and overwhelming not knowing how to start, where to go, and what not to do. This iswhy I got inspired to write this book. I wanted to share my knowledge andexperience of what it takes to start and thrive as an entrepreneur. I won'tlie. It is not a piece of cake and it really takes courage, determination,inner power, and faith. On this book, I have gathered valuable informationregarding types of legal entities, tax implications, business advice, and mypersonal insight to help you as my reader to avoid some mistakes.
Unfortunately,there is no "Business Manual" where all you do is open a chapter and Voila! You find the solution to whatever obstacles you may encounter at anytime during the course of your business (it would be nice if it existed). The reality is that trial and error will be part of your learning curve to know what and what not to do. And if you are planning on starting a business from scratch, your challenges will be even greater as they were for me. Branding,recognition, loyalty, and customer retention only comes with years of consistency.
Stay focused, positive, and follow some of my business guidance. It will save you precious time and money. Remember, if you need professional help, seek it!Don't think you can do it all. Getting advice is a very smart decision and a great ROI. We can't always wear all the hats even when we think we can.
To Your Success! ;)
