I'm in the process of transforming my informal handyman 'hobby' into an actual business. This book thoroughly covers just about every aspect of the nitty gritty business details that contractors typically avoid while also posing though-provoking questions that forced me to seriously examine my commitment to this line of work. Even though this edition dates all the way back to 2008 most of the technology references still seem to hold up. Some rates and websites may need to be updated but the essentials of running a business remain unchanged. Meany's writing style is fluid and engaging and the scenarios he provides, both real and imagined, do a great job of placing the topic at hand in a relatable context. I purchased the e-version and ate it up in a few days. I'm planning on buying the hard copy version to keep in my truck as a reference resource. Right now I'm feeling much more prepared to take on the challenge of starting my own business and that I stand a much better chance at succeeding at it.
