More like an idiot's guide how to start a business

2 or 3 different people talking through the book, I found it quite annoying. I don’t understand why they need to keep reading out all the web addresses, “visit H......T.....T.....P...” it just went on an on. Hardly picked up any advice I didn’t already know and the amount of times it tells you to make sure you check your domain is available before picking a business name, I mean come on is this really advice? It’s common sense in the digital age. Thought it would be a lot better than this, very disappointing. Tried to persist with listening, but after having to listen to another web address spelled out, I pulled the car over and deleted the book.

Excellent content - poorly delivered

This book is well written and insightful but sadly let down by Bianca Miller-Cole's reading voice. Speaking her own text out loud, the delivery is wooden and non-engaging, distracting from the otherwise interesting content. A professional narrator would achieve a 5 star review all round.

Need this in your Self Made life!

I had the book saved in my wishlist for months, wasn't in the right frame of mind to listen. I was wrong, I could have taken notes until I was ready to start my business. I will listen to this over and over again to help me through my transition. This book explains everything from start to finish of having a successful business. Once I started listening, I finished it in one day! Thank you Mrs & Mr Self Made

Outstanding! Hard copy needed for my library.

Outstanding; and as expected a well written guide. Honestly, I wish I'd purchased earlier. It would have prevented a lot of mistakes and saved me not only time, but money. A highly recommend piece for all, whether in the start up stage or not.
