A completely revised and updated version of the book that has sold more copies than any other small-business guide

A study conducted by the Roper Starch Worldwide research firm found that 46 percent of self-employed workers described themselves as "extremely satisfied" with their work situation as compared to 24 percent of those who worked for others. More people than ever are starting their own businesses en route to personal security and a more satisfying future. Through 50 printings, Small-Time Operator has been the preeminent guide for people ready to start their own business.

Everything an aspiring entrepreneur needs to know about starting and maintaining a small business -- from turning a raw proposal into a workable business plan, to keeping accurate records and avoiding audits -- is presented in the highly readable style that has made this the best-selling small-business book of all time. Kamoroff shepherds readers through the business landscape, explaining its confusing aspects with authority, clarity, and wit. Updated information on tax laws, government regulations, SBA loans, computerized bookkeeping, and the new changes to patent and trademark laws accompany completely new or expanded chapters on husband-and-wife businesses, franchises, home-based businesses, and more.
