Great book for anyone who is in business, or thinking of starting a business. Mr. Alden's honesty is a breath of fresh air. He not only discusses his triumphs, but also his missteps.

In his 3rd book Michael Alden gives readers the real life process of starting a business. He writes in such an easy to read style using terrific anecdotes from his successes and failures when getting a business going from the ground up. A perfect book for anyone thinking about starting a business. And it is a great read if you already have a business and need to fill in some blanks. It often takes a village to be successful. And this book will certainly help you along the way.
