About the Author
Emma Jones is a business expert and author, and founder of small business support company Enterprise Nation. Her books include 'Spare Room Start Up', 'Working 5 to 9 ', 'Go Global' and 'The Start Up Kit'. Following a five year career at an international accounting firm, Emma started her first business at 27, from a spare room in her Manchester apartment. That business was sold 18 months later, and the experience led to Emma's next venture, Enterprise Nation. Its website (www.enterprisenation.com) was launched in 2006 and became the most popular for home business owners in the UK, attracting over 100,000 visitors each month. Enterprise Nation has evolved to help even more would-be entrepreneurs. It now produces books, kits, online tools, video clips, friendly forums and weekly classes for anyone wanting to start and grow a small business. Emma is also a co-founder of national campaign, StartUp Britain.

The book is really easy to follow with everything broken down in simple chunks with the text broken up with tips and case studies; there are also forms for you to complete to help guide you with your market research, and business planning. Several of the case studies relate to sewing and craft related businesses so if that is the area you are thinking of going into that will make their advice more relevant to you.
All the basics are covered including business form, market research, where to work from, finance, funding, selling (including the online handmade marketplaces such as Etsy/Folksy/DaWanda) and marketing. There are lots of useful web links in the book too, I found myself looking up a lot of the sites as I went through the book.
This book is ideal for beginners and covers all the basics to get you started. It doesn't go in depth on the subjects due to the amount of different topics that are included but the web links will enable you to get more information on the topics that interest you.

One of those purchases that if I had seen the book in a shop would probably of left it there.
