, I found tips and information.

Start your own business covers everything from business structure to marketing to employee engagement. Even after twenty years in business, I found tips and information that I hadn’t even considered. The staff at Entrepreneur Media includes valuable worksheets to help business owners run their business smoothly. You’ll learn how to keep accurate financial statements, how to seek marketing in the press, how to write a business and marketing plan, as well government related issues.

Great Product, Easy-to-read, Contents easy to find

Great Product. Gave as a gift to my son who is looking into starting his own business. It is a great, easy read, and the book's contents are easy to find, and read, and will be an excellent resource to refer to time and time again. Libraries should have this as one of their reference or resource books for their patrons to check out.

A kind of authentic start.

Well, first of all, you only get one book with your order. It's kind of pretty well start your own business selling something when you only have one of them. Duh. I gave it five stars for the pretty colors on the outside of the book, on the jacket thingy. If I sell this one, I'll buy more. Then I'll, wait, what? It's about.....never mind.

Greg Shields’s stories are fun to read.

For me, this is the most manageable business book conceivable. It is plainly prearranged so that I could skip to the parts that spoke to me. It is written without business slang or superciliousness. It has a narrative, unlike the commonplace audible. It reiterates its lessons as chapter summaries and as a to-do list for the budding entrepreneur.

A Non-entrepreneur’s Explanations.

I am not a small-business entrepreneur, nor am I interested in starting a business. I got this book because I attended an author’s Greg Shields presentation at my writers’ group and I was intrigued.

Original and easy to start new business.

It clearly presents Greg Shields’s proven approach to bootstrapping from day one, to building and managing against the business plan, to how to produce sustainable growth and finally how to successfully craft an exit strategy and sell a business. The Startup Roadmap and The Startup Funding Guide appendices are extremely valuable. They present the very granular and actionable steps that can lead to the formation and launching of a successful enterprise.

Take start your business, take help from this book

“How to Start a Business: Step-By-Step Start from Business Idea and Business Plan to Having Your Own Small Business " is like having an owner’s manual for starting your own business. I highly recommend this book not only to anyone looking to follow their entrepreneurial calling but also to those who own a business as many of the topics discussed will still be applicable for maintaining and driving that business forward.

Starting Your Own Business as owner's manual.

Just finished “How to Start a Business". I wish that I had access to it six years ago when I started my own business. What I really admired about this book is that the author not only detailed what worked to create his successful business, but he also included what didn't for the business that failed. It would have been very easy to omit including the failed business.

A few things struck me.


It's engaging and well written. The prose is vivid with a nice flow, and Greg Shields stories are fun to read. Basically, you could pick this book up for a pleasure read and be satisfied. It's incredibly well thought out and clear. The book breaks down how to become a successful entrepreneur with steps that, with a little commitment, anyone could execute to fulfill their dreams.

A fun with great information.

I've worked as an independent contractor and run my own business for several years and have been fruitful, but I decided to check this book out. I've essentially been thoroughly overwhelmed by it. There are many insights I've gained which I think will help me take my business to the next level and maintain longevity.

It is an enjoyable book with a lot to possibly give. You could easily get your money’s worth and a lot more besides, even if you never do start a business. Yet a little more thought might have made a big difference!

good resourses


An extraordinarily large book that has the bold claim of being the only book you will need to be inspired and empowered to start up your own business. The claim is a bit far-fetched but it can still be a good resource

good book

This inclusive book is very useful for entrepreneurs because it basically covers every aspect of starting a business to running one and even selling one. Surprisingly, every aspect is covered with some detail despite the fact that there are books that have been and will continue to be explained on each one.
