No nonsense guide to working for yourself and making money,
This review is from: How to Make a Million Before Lunch (Paperback)
As I read the Sunday Times I had heard of Rachel Bridge and I either have or have read most of her books
She has had the advantage of interviewing a lot of tnereprenures for the paper and most of her earlier books are compilations of her articles.
She has taken the opportunity of putting this all into one book setting out everything she has learnt.
At the end of each chapter she has an action plan. This sets out in short form what each chapter is about.
If you dont want to read the waffle just read the action plan.
She has good advice about building an on line scalable business. So many want to open resatruants and shops which are hard work and don't succeed.
Sell goods or services that can make you money whilst you are not there. Build a business you can sell and that can operate without you being there.
As she and they have pointed out the Dragons never invented anything they just took an existing idea and did it better and made money.
People are obsessed by inventing things and trying to sell it. Don't bother just nick an idea and do it better. She covers areas like how do you get paid.It is cashflow that kills most firms.
Outsource as much as possible. It is now feasiable to run and iternational buiness with no employees and no stock from a laptop. This is what she is trying to teach you.
One of the best practical books on runing or starting your own business and I have read a few.
