5.0 out of 5 stars Small Business for Dummies Jan. 24 2011

This was a great start to the idea of beginning a small business on my own. The information it provided was very helpful and written in a way that took the overwhelming process out of the idea. I found that it answered questions that I didn't even know to ask. I would recommend this to anyone considering opening a small business.

Loved this book. Actually used it to homeschool, since it's so simple and laid out nicely. I specialized in small business while I was in college, belonged to an entrepreneur group, and worked in a small business incubator for startups. It had a lot of nice tips and tricks for the real world. And I don't know too many small business people that have a lot of time to read, so this is convenient--easy to pick up and reference.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book for starting a small business April 11 2009
By T. Nadeem - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a bit out dated but good book. If you aspire to start your own business or are already in one, you will find a wealth of information in this excellent book by Tyson.

This is a wonderful book of basic business start-up info. The only thing missing was a section or chapter on how to effectively distinguish yourself and your business from the growing community of entrepreneurs. I combined the info in "dummies" with Marion Gold's "Personal Publicity Planner: How to Market YOU." Now that's a winning combination for small business owners with few dollars to spend on advertising and promotion.
