Looking to break out on your own, but feeling a little overwhelmed? Don't agonize.

In this dot.com age, more and more people are striking out on their own to create the businesses they always dreamed of having. But starting a company can feel like an overwhelming amount of work: juggling multiple tasks, keeping track of expenditures, finding customers and keeping them happy. Now Ronni Eisenberg, a nationally recognized time management and organization expert and author of the enormously successful Organize! series, can help with an easy-to-follow plan that makes starting a business seem less like a venture, and more like an adventure.

Organize Your Start-Up! shows readers how to take an organized approach to financing and structuring a business, including creating the all-important business plan. It breaks down the process of securing loans and getting credit into easy steps and also offers advice on finding a location (including a website) and furnishing the space. And it shows readers how to Work Smart, including:

-- making and keeping schedules

-- wearing different business hats

-- reaching out to family and friends for support (and help!)

In addition, there is advice on marketing, networking, and, yes, expanding. Whether it's a cyber service, restaurant, consultancy, or retail enterprise, this little book is jam-packed with invaluable advice on putting things in order so that entrepreneurs can enjoy the freedom of being on their own without worrying about the details.
