Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A useful presentation of the "big picture" of business and of the skills necessary for the young entrepreneur." —VOYA: Voice of Youth Advocates
VOYA - Rayna Patton
This third edition of a 1995 publication, written by a brother-and-sister team, takes students to the heart of entrepreneurship-showing that running a successful business takes first an idea and then the know-how to get the business started and to grow. The young authors define exactly what a business is and how it is structured. The next decision is the location of the business, and the skills, capital, and marketing needed. Finally the authors give twenty ideas for businesses that youth might start. These begin with the tried-and-true, such as a lemonade stand, and go on to personalizing T-shirts, leaf raking, lawn mowing, making and selling compost; garage sales, couponing, and so on. For each venture, the steps needed for success are outlined. Several suggestions seem to involve the person selling services to his or her family. But for those with cooperative families, the principles are valid and the skills gained are worthwhile. This book can certainly be thought provoking for young people with an entrepreneurial spirit, as it explains simply the fundamentals of a successful business along with a dash of more sophisticated business concepts. The illustrations are lively and engaging, and the text non-threatening. The book might also serve as supplementary text in a middle or junior high economics class.
