This book serves as a wonderful tool towards starting your own business! I've thought about doing this for years but mainly found myself delaying getting anything started due to not really knowing where to start or feeling like I didn't know enough to run my own business. I finally decided to be more optimistic and take a trip to the bookstore and check out my options. I came across this self-help/business book casually and thought "How can you really start a business in only six weeks!?"...Well, after leafing through and seeing how detailed and informative this book is, I ended up deciding it was a pretty good option to start with...and boy, did I underestimate its potential impact. "Six-Week Start-Up" walks you through every step imaginable... from how to pick the right company name and logo, figuring how to get the right graphic designer, to what kind of employees you should be hiring for your business, what kind of employee policies you want, to what kind of finances you'll need to fund the start-up of your business and keep it afloat, the cons and pros of having a partner, the perks and downsides of being for non-profit or a full-blown corporation, providing the steps to trademarking your company name/ideas, information on how to research your competitors and give edge to your business, and even finding the right kind of lawyer and what kind of questions you'll need to be asking."Six-Week Start-Up" is set up to break down all of what you'll need to start your own business and has so many steps to make sure you have everything done right and effectively. If you're skeptical, don't be! It's set up for week-by-week tasks that are more than attainable and ideal for anyone, even someone with a busy schedule. I finished most of these tasks setting in my cubicle at work! I'm in my fifth week already and I couldn't be more optimistic about my capabilities of running my own business. Even if you only have just a slight desire to get a business up and running,"Six-Week Start-Up" will baby you all the way to your Opening Day and is worth the cost of $20 bucks that has all the potential to lead you to making millions!
