2 for Effort

I tried my absolute best to give this book a shot When I got halfway through I thought my audible had skipped back to the beginning because I kept hearing the same information. Proprietorship is easier but riskier, incorporating is harder but safer. We get it. I want to know how companies are structured and how businesses move through funding cycles. Maybe I picked the wrong book.

Information is Common Knowledge

This is all information you can know without any experience in business, and is readily available for free on the internet. I thought it would have more useful information and actual numbers, or at least some type of in-depth research but it was 99% filler and common sense. That said, I did like the section on reasons to go with a partnership or LLC, or LLLC, or corporation structure. That I had never really thought about liability and other structures for a privately owned business. I just wish the book had had more statistics and analysis.

Take start your business, take help from this book

“How to Start a Business: Step-By-Step Start from Business Idea and Business Plan to Having Your Own Small Business " is like having an owner’s manual for starting your own business. I highly recommend this book not only to anyone looking to follow their entrepreneurial calling but also to those who own a business as many of the topics discussed will still be applicable for maintaining and driving that business forward.
