Library Journal - Library Journal
Recognizing that people are choosing or being forced to retire at earlier and earlier ages, the authors have looked at 100 different small businesses started by people after they have left their nine-to-five jobs. The businesses range from tiny home-based enterprises started to supplement the retiree's income and fill spare time to larger businesses with numerous employees involving long hours of hard work. Each business profile contains a summary table detailing start-up costs, success potential, time commitment, advantages and disadvantages, and sources for more information. The book's main strength is its provision of testimonials, which offer a good source of ideas for those looking to start a business whether they are retired or not. Also included are sections on business selection, self-assessment, and business plan development. Although there is not a great deal of information on each business, this is a good starting point. Recommended for public libraries.-Joel Jones, Jefferson Cty. P.L., Arvada, Col.
