Start Right Reviews

Everything is spelled out in this step-by-step guide -- from raising money to talking to your family to marketing your new business – and it’s done in a way anyone can follow. Perhaps the most valuable section is a list of detailed questions that Start Right: Build Your Own Business insists the would-be business owner answer as part of writing a business plan. If you can’t answer each question with specifics, then you aren’t quite ready to launch a business, the book advises in a no-nonsense fashion. You have more work to do first. Start Right: Build Your Own Business also offers lots of references to additional resources where entrepreneurs can find even more detailed advice and guidance. Start Right: Build Your Own Business delivers what it promises – the right start on the path to owning your own business and fulfilling a dream.

The information in this book is easy to use and the checklist of "to do's" helped me to believe that starting a business was something that I could do.

What I liked best was in the online version I was able to download and save real accounting worksheets in Excel. They were worksheets like profit and loss statements, statement of cash flows, etc. Before taking this course, I'm not so sure that I would know what to expect when it comes to those. Much of the other information is useful in that it gives tips that you don't really think about. Probably the other thing I liked about it was that it organized all the information in one place of things like what state agency I need to register my business name with or which questions to ask potential lawyers, bankers and accountants.

Inspiring and hopeful!

Very well written and easy to understand, and is excellent for anyone who is starting or purchasing an existing business.

For businesses that are less than five years old, it’s very helpful, or for one-person businesses that want to expand, Start Right: Build Your Own Business can be very helpful.

I am an organization freak. I loved Chapter 7 about files and organizing. I took that information and put folders exactly as it described, and that was very helpful. Step by step, it tells you how to organize all your information so you can quickly reference it.

If you don’t have your personal finances in order, don’t expect to start a business. Don’t blend business and personal finances –that was the biggest reality check from Start Right.

“Start Right: Build Your Own Business” offers entrepreneurs an opportunity to learn the steps to starting their business in a user-friendly format. The 119-page book is more like a workbook to assist entrepreneurs in getting organized to establish a business. From the beginning, the book is in a logical sequence that shows the entrepreneur that there is more to starting a business than just having a product or service. The book covers setting goals, researching the market, preparing financials, and creating organizational plans. In addition, each chapter has a checklist of ‘To Do’s’ and at the conclusion of the book is an entire checklist that the entrepreneur can complete as he/she proceeds to the world of small business. The book is written in terminology that is easy to understand and contains a plethora of resources to help the entrepreneur be successful.
