Finance competition for jobs and high unemployment rates have prompted a surge in self-employment. People are tired of waiting for an employer to hire them. They're sick of waiting for good jobs to become available. And so they're becoming increasingly interested in entrepreneurship, which can be a lucrative alternative to traditional employment.
For those wondering whether they're ready to launch their own businesses or looking for guidance in the start-up process, a wealth of advice is offered in Entrepreneurship Quizzes, written by one of the US's leading developers of career assessments. This book provides 12 self-assessements designed to help readers explore their interests and preferences, values, and other personal characteristics, and then apply those characteristics to their businesses.
This book takes readers through a four-step self-reflection process, assessing readiness, determining a business type, overcoming barriers, and maintaining momentum, designed to help them find their own paths to self-employment success. The appendix includes an extensive list of self-employment resources.
