3.0 out of 5 stars I am very skeptical about these reviews... Feb. 8 2008
By Kirsten - Published on Amazon.com
As a stay-at-home mother considering beginning a new business in order to pay for my children's college tuitions, I was about to order this book based on its high reviews.

However, the first thing I noticed about those reviews is that they all used "real names"--not a common occurance for many items, as you likely know if you are a regular shopper with Amazon. I then took a gander at the "other reviews" of the reviewers, and realized the vast majority of the reviewers have reviewed this book alone, and no other books. Suspicious! Is someone making up profiles, having their friends vote for their book, etc. in order to boost the ratings (and therefore viability of this item) or what?

For this issue alone, I am going to pass on this book. I do not feel I can trust these reviews!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring Ideas and Down-to-Earth Guidance April 17 2007
By Kathleen June - Published on Amazon.com
I didn't expect to learn so much from A Fearless Guide to Starting a Profitable 5K Business, because I've been in business for myself for many years. But in the first few pages and throughout the book, I found great ways to save myself time, money and anxiety and increase my confidence, exposure and customer base. The book is written in a personalized, conversational tone that delivers inspring ideas and concrete advice (including contact information to websites of tested resources). I highly recommend this book to first-time and long-time business owners.

3.0 out of 5 stars trust the critical review April 18 2008
By Iridia Twain - Published on Amazon.com
I ordered this book despite the critical review posted, but have to say how, consider this review. The book is ok, but would be better called "how to start a 5 K business in the local service sector", because it is heavily focused on real estate and other service activities, such as career counseling. There is also a fair bit of very blunt advertising of specific online providers, business card printers and such, which is ok, but a couple of alternative suggestions would make me feel better. I am interested in starting a craft business and to sell nationwide through the Internet, and for my questions it is simply not the right book. If you want to become a local mortgage broker, it might be exactly what you need.

5.0 out of 5 stars The entrepreneur Aug. 5 2010
By Dennis - Published on Amazon.com
I have just finished reading..."Profitable 5K Business"...which is not well known, or read much, and published back in 2007.
What the book offers is one of the solutions to our USA economic woos, and that is "Entrepreneurism". We need to promote more individual investment into our present system and not depend on Big Business. Big Business is only interested in profit and bottom line, not in increasing employment. With the introduction of Globalization, Big Business moved their manufacturing and service business overseas leaving a large void in the US economic structure.
The only way we can fill the void is with small business start ups, and that takes the American entrepreneurial spirit to get it started.
A book of this kind is needed to create the confidence and the guide lines needed to start.
I would look forward to the author Marilyn Sweet, writing a follow-up book, "Starting Business in a Recession". Also create a more national overview, or eventually global.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything I expected and more! Oct. 22 2008
By Quizzical1 - Published on Amazon.com
I am starting a guitar tutoring business and found this book on Amazon. As it turned out this book was just what I needed to get new, creative ideas on how to get started with minimal investment.

As an added bonus, the author was true to her word and actually answered emails with suggestions directed to my personal situation.

Thank you so much Marilyn!
