It Works like a Start-Up Kit

Created for beginners but if you're an expert or someone that's had a small business for some time, then this can still give newer things that have been learned over the years or that apply to the small business today. I highly recommend this.

Good work for novices.

There are some good possessions in this audible but for someone a little obsessed with order, the samples provided on some of the lists are maddening!

Clearly written for people like me.

This isn’t a stiff business plan— it’s a big pile of sides that encourage you to think and explore freely. As a perfectionist, I find that really exciting.

All the boss babes out there.

There is a wealth of knowledge that I wish I had years ago when I was first starting my business. I am not new to owning my biz, but I'm still finding this work immensely effective in bringing clarity to my vision of the future of my company.

A Wonderful Gift to Start a Business

Utterly put for newcomers, but not lacking details and significant data. Easy to take notes off of, and learn something new! I thought I knew everything about running a business until I understand this.

Highly Recommended!

Robert McCarthy released this audible into the world. It is simple, honest, and supportive to make a dream into a reality. I enjoy the depth, for much of the content I didn’t even understand that I should consider! It covers everything from an idea board to legal stuff to time management.
