Are You Ready to be Your Own Boss?

by Carol Denbow
 
Do you plan to give up your job and start a new business of your own? What would that take? What would be your new responsibilities? Probably more than you planned. In new business, your security is the biggest thing you give up. The idea of having a paycheck in the same amount you can count on every week is gone. The benefits you get now, your insurance, or whatever

Overview

Do you plan to give up your job and start a new business of your own? What would that take? What would be your new responsibilities? Probably more than you planned. In new business, your security is the biggest thing you give up. The idea of having a paycheck in the same amount you can count on every week is gone. The benefits you get now, your insurance, or whatever it is that you count on is gone. When you work for someone else you have set responsibilities, when you work for yourself, you are responsible for everything. Scary huh?
Failure? The myth that nine out of ten businesses close in their first year may or may not be completely true. According to more recent Dun and Bradstreet data, 76 percent of new companies were still in business after two years, 47 percent after four years, and 38 percent after six years. These estimates are substantially different than what is still commonly believed.

Editorial Reviews

Dr. Tony LaTurner
We at the University level rely on Academic stuff that has a tendency to overkill with “immaterial fluff” and a non-practical approach. Your book is very informative and presents a clear, down-to-earth, practical approach to starting a business. I was impressed enough that I recommended your book to our professor that teaches our Small Business classes.
