There is an online workbook to download, which links to key points in the book.
The author includes real-life case studies and great quotes and tips from small business owners. The book is is aimed at people starting a business later in life, but would be equally valuable to younger would-be business owners. And although I have now been running my current business successfully for three years, I have found loads of useful advice and action tips which will help me manage it even more effectively in the future.’

‘I have found this book so useful as I set about launching my new business. It is written in a really informative but concise and simple way that makes it easy to read and to pick up and read in short chunks. Essential for the busy new business owner who doesn’t have time to sit around reading for hours. The workbook that goes with it really makes you think properly about how you are approaching things. It’s all easy to just ‘fall into’ ways of doing things and this book keeps you along the right lines. Highly recommended!’
