Thinking of starting your own business? With a modest investment, the author describes how ordinary people, drawing on their personal passion, developed a successful product or service. As the author points out, anyone with some effort, persistence, and a workable plan can do the same. — Denis M., North Regional Library

Excellent read - so informative, resourceful, fascinating and useful that you'll finish this book quickly. This book will help you out no matter what kind of microbusiness you wish to start up. This is a keeper - I'm going out to buy this book.

I literally just finished this book about 10 mins ago and I am leaving encouraged and apprehensive all at once! I never thought Entrepreneur as a title for myself but my mind has definitely changed! I am definitely Ready!

This is a good book for anyone who's considering starting a small or micro business. It has lots of lists, pointers, and true-life stories about making a living as your own boss. I especially like the author's three "musts" for getting started -- 1) have a product or service, 2) have people willing to pay for that product or service, and 3) have a way to get paid.

There are some good ideas in here. It is a short book and I find the format (boxes, etc.) distracting, but it is a quick read that will stimulate your brain.

Great book. The stories of the entrepreneurs the author met at different locations around world are very interesting. Especially how they got on the first step to start their own business.
