Simply put, this book is the reason I now own my own successful small business. I had every excuse in the world as to why I couldn't do it but the main one was FEAR. Jay Phillips helped me make my dream a reality by guiding me with real world advice and experience. I'm so thankful to be my own boss and won't ever look back. It's a must have!

The book is written in a common sense and practical manner that I found honest and engaging. It prompted me to focus on creating the small business that I would "love" to run. As a result, I am in the final stages of creating a golf statistics and game improvement Website that will open for business this summer. Best of all, I've really enjoyed getting the business ramped up. I've used many of the techniques and insights from this book to get the business started, and will continue to draw on the ideas and best practices as I run the business. It's a quick read and excellent reference to go back to when you have questions about how to start and run a small business. By the way: If you are looking for the best golf statistics package on the market. Check out in late June. You'll be amazed by the quality of golf statistics you get for so little effort, plus see the actual results of leveraging the ideas in this book.
