If you think you want to own your own business or if you already do own your business and are thinking of making a change, you need this book. The author draws on her years of experience and meticulous research to provide information that can help you discover if business ownership is for you and, if so, what sort of business.
The first part of the book describes what characteristics are needed to be your own boss while part two gives areas of opportunity that offer growth potential. Part three helps match up your interests and abilities to possible ventures. There is an abundance of ideas and information in this book and really it is a workshop you can take on your own.
In fact, the book is based on workshops the author has given. This accounts for the depth and breadth she is able to provide. There are links to many places for more information as well as a downloadable worksheet to use while working through the book. It would make an excellent gift if you know someone who is thinking of striking out on their own but not quite sure how to go about it.
