Overview

Entrepreneurship has become the "American Dream" of the new millennium. However, most small businesses go under within their first two years and only 1 in 10 make it ten years. Even the smartest small business owner, can quickly find themselves awash in a sea of debt, taxes, unscrupulous competitors, and greedy lawyers and accountants. What's more, legal remedies are seldom effective in fending off these small business piranhas-and they are often only useful AFTER the damage has been done.

If you're one of the 30 million Americans who is either currently running or hoping to start a small business, you need to protect yourself before you take the plunge. The Small Business Survival Guide is the first book to provide effective and affordable strategies for coping with small business predators-and safeguarding your assets, ideas, and success.

Best known as the former host of the PBS series, MONEYHUNT, he also authors a weekly business advice column, Succeeding in Your Business, which is syndicated nationally by Creators Syndicate, and appears in dozens of major newspapers, newsweeklies, and small business Web sites throughout North America, including www.entrepreneur.com, the Web site of Entrepreneur magazine.
