Biggest pile of rubbish I've ever read!!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Starting Your Own Online Business (Startups) (Paperback)
Don't bother. No really don't bother. It doesn't even deserve one star. 99% of this book just states the obvious...and then they have copied the majority of material and information from the other startup books. The so called experts they use?? 'Just look at us we have made it and it is really simple because we are being paid to tell you rubbish and NOT the truth'.
You'll certainly won't get assistance or real useful advice from this book. It's all about spending thousands and thousands of pounds and then when your business collapses you've got an enormous debt.
Go seek a mentor??????????? Do you have any idea how much mentors charge a day!!!!! I do...£1200!!! A DAY!!
Go buy a computer, go seek advice, get yourself a solicitor, an accountant, an expert to help you, do a SWOT analysis, create a business plan and guess how much you'll spend on your products and guess how much profit you'll make the first year and guess how much time you will invest and guess how much you'll have to borrow for this year and for the next 3 years...etc etc.
The book also assumes that you've ALREADY started an online business. When I bought this book I wanted advice on how to START an online business (as the title suggests) not to teach my grandmother how to suck eggs and tell me how to run a business that is already trading!!
It is also a cheap and annoying advertising platform for SAGE. For the would be online business person to spend money and buy SAGE products. Obviously they must've paid for this book to get it published.
Ah yes, I nearly forgot...the statistics the ones you don't want to hear like, even a child can do it and that you do not need experience, that millions are doing it right now and so can you, that you are a failure or their is something wrong with you if you can't set up an online business now.
Maybe you should buy it but I've warned you, you'll be wasting your time and money.
