New book: Start a Business for £99 by Emma Jones
Emma Jones, the founder of Enterprise Nation, has published a new book: Start a Business for £99
She distills her years of experience of travelling the country helping people turn a skill or a passion into a sustainable business, into sensible, easy-to-follow steps for people on a budget.
Emma says of her new book: “Five years ago, starting a business was considered a little unusual. Today one in ten domestic properties is home to at least one business and the word ‘start-up’ is an everyday term.”
“In writing this book, I set out to dispel the myth that in order to start-up you need heaps of cash and an MBA. From my experience, taking on debt can be as destructive as it can be helpful. Some of the best businesses I have ever come across were set up by people who kept costs low, started out from home, harnessed technology – often holding down a job while it got off the ground.”
“While the start-up boom has transformed many people’s lives, I thought the time was now right for this book to reach the people who would love to start-up, but don’t know where to begin.”
The book examines how to:
• Come up with a winning idea
• Take an idea from concept to market
• Carry out high-value, low-cost market research
• Develop a professional online presence for less
• Make the most of free technology tools
• Raise profile with no marketing budget required
• Find space and people by borrowing and bartering
If it were as easy as buying a book we would all be rich the publisher and the author are the ones that will make the most out of this book
Buying a Book is only the first stage. Then you have to read it and understand it which probobly means that you refer back to it on numerous occasions. Remember a Book is for Life not just for Christmas so even when you think that you have learnt all that you can from it..Do Not Throw it away.
In the average Book the price of the Book includes a lot more sections than just the publisher and the author. What about the Printer and Binder and speaking as a Bookseller I hope that I get a share as well.
Remember that ALL the knowledge of Mankind can be found in Books.
wish there was a book that knew where my glasses were
When I am watching Sport such as Cricket, as I will be doing later today as the Indian Premier League is on Sky Sports 3. It always appears to me that the players always wear their glasses on top of their heads. Have you looked there?
