Top Customer Reviews
As the title implies, this book is about being reasonable, both in financial investment, profit expectations but also in quality of life. Owning your own business is mainly about freedom, not working 80+ hours a week for no salary while hoping your stock options will be worth something...one day. Been there, done that -- it sucks!
I highly recommend this book to any new & experienced software entrepreneur. Rob Walling has distilled a decade of eventful entrepreneurship into 200 odd pages. For me, "Start Small, Stay Small" is the best 10$ I have ever spent. Period.
This is the only book that talks about real numbers (salaries, sales, etc...) and has more details packed in 200 pages.
I usually stay away from business/marketing books because they are just that - marketing!
But this book is different, it is drawn from experience and realities.
I've already launched my software and this book still provided me with very important lessons, tips, and insights.
