Be Your Own Boss: Start a Business!

How to Hit the Ground Running

By: Incorporated


RELEASED in June 2014







If you are looking for a job or are underemployed with a part-time job, maybe itís time to become your own boss and run your own business.

On the other hand, if you are already working full-time for someone and your wages increase by 2% a year, while the real rate of inflation is about 8% and the cost to borrow money is between 12% and 24%, you donít need a calculator to see that you are being put through a financial meat grinder. You know it! In that case, maybe itís time to go out on your own.

Find out if you have what it takes to start your own business, because itís not always an easy ride.

In this book, I will provide you with some hints on how to start your own part-time or full-time business. I will show you where to get an idea for starting a business and how to find out if it can make money for you. Learn about the legal forms of establishing your own business and how to set your objectives and begin operations.

One thing is for sure, computers can make your new business life a lot easier, so I will guide you through some of the hardware and software that can help you get off to a flying start, by assisting you with accounting; managing your time and staying in touch with your customers. Learn about software to help you create advertising material and brochures.

Youíll have to advertise. If potential customers donít know about you, youíll never get off the ground. So, Iíll take you through some of the basics of advertising; both offline and online. Then, Iíll show you some inexpensive and easy ways to create your own Web site and sell your products or services over the Internet.

Finally, Iíll show you how write a business plan for your own use or use it to seek outside investors or lenders.

Youíll get a lot of self-satisfaction out of being your own boss and running your own business. Hopefully, with this book, I will help you hit the ground running.
