Although originally written for those in health care professions, this book has great advice for starting and developing a business, in all fields.
Some of the topics covered are start-up
, marketing, the business plan, business management and life-planning.
Also included are lots of inspirational quotes and lists of publication resources. This is an interactive book as there are practical exercises, tips and illustrations to follow.
Although written with American businesses in mind (dollar signs everywhere) the principles of the book are easily transferrable to any marketplace.
As mentioned above, it is heavily geared towards the health care professions but has guidance for all types of businesses. Great for students too.
