′An easy–to–read guide in starting a business from an entrepreneur who’s done it all.’  (Entrepreneur Country, May 2012)

From the Back Cover

Have you ever thought about starting a business of your own? Chances are you have, but have yet to take the plunge. It feels like too much of a risk, you lack the capital, you don’t have the experience… All these worries conspire to hold you back. But they shouldn’t. It’s time to stop procrastinating and make it happen. If you’ve ever dreamed of being your own boss, this refreshingly simple book will give you the information, inspiration, and reassurance you need to get started. It’ll encourage you to take the leap into the dark, while shinning a bright light on the things you need to do to get started, breaking down what appears to be an Everest–sized challenge into a series of small hills for you to conquer. Written by successful entrepreneur Jeremy Harbour, Go Do! shows that the skills and tactics of successful entrepreneurship are best learnt by doing. It will give you the confidence you need to confront your fears, plan for success, and just Go Do! it. GO DO! explains How to come up with your killer idea How to get started without a huge bank balance Where to start when Planning your business What happens if you go bust What steps you need to take in your first days, weeks and months in business “This book takes the reader through that real, scary, joyful and ultimately rewarding journey into wealth.”— Penny Power Founder of Ecademy and Digital Youth Academy “Jeremy ably dispels the myth that you need to invent something new to start your own business. People have made money selling bread for thousands of years – the successful ones just do it better.”— Nick Jenkins, Founder of Moonpig.com

This good is a great guide and I thoroughly enjoyed it start to finish. Every idea/strategy in the book is backed up by logical thinking & relevant examples which is a complete contrast to the vast majority of these type of books.
The author has a way with words and shares some amusing stories all of which contain a key message.

I 100% recommend this to any one who is reading anything around business & entrepreneurship.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book will make you go and do it! 29 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very practical and readable book covering key aspects of starting up a business which I would recommend strongly to anyone with half a thought on setting up their own enterprise.

After an initial chapter in which Jeremy Harbour outlines very briefly to date his own life of entrepreneurship, Chapters 2-3 deal with weighing up future success and failure and associated risks of both starting a prospective business versus continuing life as before. The author then focuses on both overcoming the worst excuses that prevent people from starting up and also taking responsibility for the future success of the business (Chapters 4 and 6). I thought Chapter 5 to be particularly useful in its consideration and comparison of, on the one hand, new inventions and, on the other hand, innovative products in established markets. Subsequent chapters (7-10)deal with finding your customers and planning, marketing, selling to and communicating with those customers. The concluding Chapter 11 sets out over a three-month period '... a series of time-based objectives so that you can begin to put into practice the planning you've started...'.

The author makes it very easy for readers to refer to specific points and learn key ideas and recommendations. Chapters 2 to 10 include very helpful end-of-section 'Lessons to be Gained from this Chapter' summaries. There is also a well constructed, detailed index, not always to be taken for granted nowadays, which can direct readers to specific points of interest for reference, before, during or after a main read of the whole text.

I am very impressed with the combined succinctness and readability of the text. Jeremy achieves in only limited space what other business writers can't do in much longer texts.

Having read a handful of self-help books, this is the worst I have in my library. The information has been recycled and can be found free online. Please look somewhere else.
