I bought this book with many ideas in my head about starting my own business and it is well worth the money. The book encourages you to think about the lifestyle you want and how hard you're prepared to work to achieve it. The exercises are a nice touch in the book to evaluate your own drive and ambition. You won't be disappointed.
