What Other Readers Say
This is the best Entrepreneurial guide I have ever read. It is filled with handy coaching tips and points to ponder. The book does not just focus on business development but it also deals with the self analysis of the individual. There is an interesting section on idea development with various practical and real life examples. The book highlights pitfalls on choices that will guide the entrepreneur through the daunting maze of business options. The book does not stop at the business plan development but also gives a unique insight to family businesses and succession planning, covering the whole life cycle of the business not just the start-up. A must read for everyoe thinking of developing a business idea.
L Nel, CA and business owner
This is an excellent book and by far one of the best, most informative, accessible and objective books on entrepreneurship I have read. The market is saturated with books written by people who simply say `this is my business model; it worked for me so there are no excuses why it cannot work for you.' Thankfully, the authors avoid this condescending and subjective tone and bring together a lot of secondary and primary research, academic thinking, practical ideas and their own substantial experience, which genuinely helps to minimise the risk of going out on your own in business. The authors focus strongly on self analysis and the importance of a cohesive, realistic and flexible business plan - 2 points which are of huge importance, if thinking of becoming an entrepreneur. The authors use a variety of sources to point out the dangers of over-confidence, poor planning, lack of will and motivation, amongst others, and by using plain English, helps the reader to plan ahead and avoid these common pitfalls.
This is essential reading for budding entrepreneurs.
