A great book for business start-ups!,
This review is from: You Can Get It If You Really Want: Start your business, transform your life (Paperback)
Starting up and growing a business is tough. It takes guts and determination. This book gives you the story behind the Reggae Reggae Group, and while it can't help you replicate this success, only you can do that, it does prove a point, that absolutely anyone can change their life if they are convinced about their idea and committed to it, and can surround themselves with people who can support them.
This book is aimed at people who would not normally read business books, in particular young people who have not got where they were hoping in the difficult employment market. This is where the book excels, you only need to Chapter 3 for one of the clearest, most straight forward guides to producing a Business Plan that I have ever read, and Levi Roots is generous enough to provide you the full and original Business Plan from his appearance on Dragons' Den, with a forward to explain exactly what its weaknesses are.
A highlight of this book is the grey Feature pages which break up the book, and explain Levi Roots has applied the guidance in the chapter to his own business. In the features about employing a corporate lawyer and an accountant, I know he has been accused of over-simplifying, but I meet many business people who take the risky decision to `wing it' on their own when their business start-up is cash-strapped, only to realise how much money they could have saved if they had taken proper advice from the beginning.
Use this book to help you hone your Business Plan, and like Levi Roots you can get it if you really want!
