5.0 out of 5 stars Another great business book from Rachel, 31 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read all Rachel's other books and so was really looking forward to this one, and I wasn't disappointed. If anything, this is actually a more useful and practical book that the earlier ones, which concentrate more on how other entrepreneurs made their fortunes. This one is full of sensible advise for those wanting to start off in business but who hasn't got thousands of pounds to set it up with, such as how to set up an office, get a website up and running and how to get noticed and attract customers, sometimes without spending any money at all!

Throughout the book she is also setting up her own business to put her ideas into practice which is a great idea and means she's actually doing it herself rather than just talking about it. She's also good at saying what type of businesses you should be setting up if you haven't any money to spend, rather than what you might like to but which would be inappropriate, eg spending thousands of pounds and several years on researching and developing a totally new product, or signing an expensive lease for a shop. Instead she is all about sticking to your strengths, selling what people need rather than just want, using outsourcing in a loads of inventive ways and getting paid upfront if you can. And not shelling out vast amount of money you haven't got!

It is tightly written with lots of practical ideas rather than endless waffle and extremely relevant in this current climate. She illustrates her tips with lots of interesting case studies of other businesses too so you can see what worked for other people. Basically you don't need to save up a massive pot of cash before you go it along - do it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book!, 7 May 2012
I was recommendeded this book by a friend and really, really enjoyed it. It's funny, entertaining, very readable and also very honest about the highs and lows of dating. I think this book would be perfect to take away on holiday and isn't just for single people - I bet lots of people in relationships will read it to find out how life is on the other side!

5.0 out of 5 stars a really inspiring book, 11 Aug. 2010
I heard Rachel Bridge talking on the Jeremy Vine show on Radio 2 the other day so I immediately rushed out and bought this book. It is really interesting and inspiring and is full of fascinating stories and good tips of what to do - and more importantly what not to do - when setting up a business so it saves you from making any stupid mistakes. I would really recommend this book to anyone who wants to become an entrepreneur.
