I first found out about this author when I read ABC's of Getting Out of Debt. That book started me on my 9 month course to be debt free and to repair my credit. The next step in my journey is to start my own business so I am gathering information about writing my business plan so that I have a blueprint to follow. I bought two books on the subject and Sutton's is the best. He uses stories to relay his message and the stories are both entertaining and educational. It makes for a good read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I am a fan of Garrett Sutton. I have read several of his books. Buying & Selling a Business, Run Your Own Corporation and others. This book made a daunting task seem attainable. I particularly liked the "tips" throughout the book. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to start a business or needing financing for an existing business.Was this review helpful?
