Are you a salaried employee who enjoys the work you do, but resent that someone else gets the lion’s share of the rewards for your efforts? If so, you’ve probably thought of chucking it all and starting your own business. Before you do, though, you’re well-advised to do a little research.
A good place to start is Live Free or DIY by Justin E. Crawford. This short book, short in comparison with most business books, that is, lays out a comprehensive, step-by-step for the budding entrepreneur. It discusses budgeting, business planning, time management, and enterprise structure in easy-to-grasp chapters, complete with illustrative charts and references.
Regardless of your field of expertise, this book, while not the final word on running a business by any means, is a handy reference that you might want to keep handy even after your business is off and running.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my review. I give it four stars.
