The Small Business Startup Guide is a start to finish handbook on how to take your entrepreneurial idea and turn it into a business. Years of business education, certifications, and entrepreneurial trial and error have gone into this book to ensure you are armed for a successful launch. This book is structured in three parts: business theory, which explains the inherent risk in starting a business and gives you a plan for mitigating that risk; business finance, which will teach you the steps you need to know and the experts you need to reach out to in order to get your finances in order; and business operations, which covers the nitty-gritty of running a successful business. While the material will teach you a great deal about the mechanics of a startup, there are four keys you must understand and believe before you start your business. If you don't, you will fail?or worse, you'll never even get started. Kevin Laliberte will take you through these keys to success, lay out the essential steps you must take, and provide the necessary resources to get you going.
