From the Author

You're starting on one of the most important journeys in your life, well barring child birth and marriage, starting a business is still high up there. Deciding to start a business may seem to be a difficult decision to make, but making the decision is probably going to be the easiest part of the business. Nonetheless you've made the leap, or seriously considering, it which is why you're reading this book.

The following pages talk about some things I learned on my road to becoming a Serial Entrepreneur. I've started 7 businesses and have worked with countless others to start and grow their businesses. Consider this a beginners guide to business or a prerequisite. If you've ever worked on a start-up you may already know much of this information. If you're like me when I started my first company in 2003 or the millions of other people who have never started a company this will be much needed information for you. The following are things I've found necessary regardless of the type of business you are starting. For more specialized business principles visit BUSINESSCONSIG.COM.

About the Author

I often found myself giving motivation & advice to people planning to start a business. There is a stigma that you need lots of money to start a business or graduate from business school before you are qualified to start a business. People often think I'm anti education, but I'm actually a huge advocate, I just don't believe formal education is the only type of education or the end all be all. You will be hard pressed to find me not currently reading at least 2 or 3 books at a time. What I do have a problem with is formal education without a plan or with a convoluted view of reality. A degree looks good on paper & sounds good in theory, but by the time you factor in the student debt, you may be graduating with, the fact that jobs are scarce, & the number of Americans finding jobs in the fields they specialized in is decreasing, these may be a major deterrent to following the status quo.

In October of 2009 I was at a photography studio discussing a potential project with a photographer I had worked with on several occasions & had come to respect. Towards the end of our meeting another photographer I had been giving advice to on how to start his company walked in. I had several conversations with him prior to that day about what route I felt would be the most effective for his company, but he was still dragging his feet in doubt.  After about an hour or two of discussion on strategizing on how to spend A LOT LESS money than he originally thought he would have to spend & motivating him to move forward I could see the resolve on his face to really take action this time. Once our conversation ended he pulled me to the side & told me he really thought I had a gift & should seriously consider business coaching/consulting for people who had start-up ideas but didn't know where to begin. He then started advising & coaching me on how he felt I could structure the business. After much reluctance on January 1, 2010 Business Consigliere was born.
