Run your own business: Make your company a success with help from classic thinkers
Many of us have at some time toyed with the idea of starting our own businesses or becoming self-employed. There are many positive aspects to being your own boss: you choose the hours you want to work, but it can be daunting, and many of us ditch the dream in favor of the easy yet dreary life, which is why this book is here to help. We’ve thumbed through classic ideas on work and entrepreneurship and placed them in the context of twenty-first century business. The perils of running a company are not new and as far back as the eighteenth century writers such as Benjamin Franklin were advising folk on the best ways to profit from work. If you follow all the ideas in this book before long you may find that work becomes something you can choose to do rather than something you have to do. Now, wouldn’t that be nice?

These self help classics have inspired generations of readers with simple and effective ideas that continue to resonate today. The wise lessons from these books have been interpreted here using twenty-first century case studies and modern business finance examples. These 50 short, entertaining chapters, which include practical tips and inspiring quotes, are sure to help you set up and run a successful business.
