Overview

Businesses, large and small, old and startup, are failing all around us. When financial disaster looms in front of the owner / entrepreneur, the first of two very important and difficult decisions that must be made is:

DO I CLOSE THIS BUSINESS DOWN?

If that answer is “Yes”, the second decision that must be made is: “Do I declare bankruptcy, or is there some other viable alternative I can choose to settle everything?”

Decisive action is a must. This book is a study of the decisions one business owner made, and the detailed history of how he made it through the maze with a self-managed liquidation.

• Closing your failing business is not about quitting: It is about knowing when it is time to close it down, and having the guts to do it!

• Grasping the “S” Curve of Business is a must for any would-be entrepreneur.

• When dealing with credit card debt, the key is understanding this: “It’s a game!” Here you will learn how to play that game.

• See how you can make Walt Disney’s Storyboarding system become your most valuable business management tool.

• Become aware of how vital embracing the concept “the market IS the market” is to your business and personal planning.

This book is a message of hope, and resilience, and never giving up. If you can use that message in your life, then this book is for you.
