Product Description

Product Description

"Never started a company before? Struggling with little or no cash? Have no experience, no baseline to judge your progress against? Thank God! You've got a shot at making this work." So says Mike Michalowicz, author of The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur, a business book that is so uniquely useful, so raw and entertaining, it reads like the brainchild of Steve Jobs and Chris Rock.
The founder of three multimillion-dollar companies, including Obsidian Launch, a company that partners with first-time entrepreneurs to grow their concepts into industry leaders, Mike Michalowicz knows what it really takes to spin your great idea into pure gold.

Whether you're just starting out or have been at this for years, Mike's "get real" approach to business is a much-needed swift kick in the pants. In this book, you'll discover:
* Why a business plan is a total waste of your time.
* Why fulfilling your own needs is the first and last order of business.
* Which three sheets of paper you need to successfully launch, manage and grow your business.
* How to get started in business with little or no money.
* How to find and exploit resources that no one else knows about.
* How to stop procrastinating and take action NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best! 22 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best books I have read in years. the only downside for me is some of the authors language, It is just unnecessarily foul. Full of good content and personal experiences that are useful.

If you're a business management student - YOU NEED TO READ THIS! If you're a business consultant - YOU NEED TO READ THIS! If you're a business lecturer/tutor - YOU NEED TO READ THIS, but most of all, if you've started or about to start a new business, - THIS IS THE 'MUST HAVE' MENTORSHIP you cannot afford to miss out on.

Mike's an original thinker and his experience-based, humourous but 'razor sharp' focus on all that's needed to 'MAKE YOU THINK' (and let's face it who does that these days?) really has no substitute.

This book was a great read on a first read-through, and an even better read on the second. Go on, be kind to yourself and inspire your dream of self-realisation! I cannot recommend this book highly enough and as a management tutor and consultant with over twenty years of business reading behind me believe me, I know what I'm talking about. Read this book...then PASS IT ON TO OTHERS!

Invest in 'The Toiletpaper Entrepreneur''s wonderfully crafted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great advice. 2 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a bootstrapping business owner, we did a lot of what he talks about. Just not as well and I wish we had done everything he advocates. A great book about trusting yourself and your idea and not spending too much to get where you are going. Given that most businesses fail through poor cash flow, ignore Mike at your peril!

This book is written with humour, tons of common sense and more than a dash of chutzpah! Mike takes us through everything we need to start a successful business. Excellent resource for any would-be entrepreneur!
