I have read at least a dozen "How to start your own business" books and have always been left wondering, "Well, what's my first step?". I have never found one with an actual road map, until now. Ms. Abrams gives you the tools and a step by step guide to start your own business. She speaks to those who have no business background at all without making you feel like an idiot. Every chapter is clear and concise without any confusing legalese.
I have been working in the corporate world for over 20 years and am tired of working relentlessly for someone else. Just to watch them reap all the benefits of my hard work. It's time for me to be the head honcho and with Ms. Abrams step-by-step guide, I have the confidence I need to succeed! ~~Anonymous...for now!
