Recent studies reveal that job satisfaction rates in America are at an all time low and a whopping 58% of Americans admit that they have considered starting their own businesses. While job satisfaction is decreasing, the number of new small businesses entering the market is climbing each year. In a time when job satisfaction has become an oxymoron, it is no surprise that workers are bidding farewell to stuffy cubicles in favor of launching their own small businesses.
While there are scores of business books in the marketplace that provide high-level advice, this is the first business book to address the fear involved in launching a small business while providing the real resources that entrepreneurs need.
The entrepreneurs profiled in the book represent various industries from across the country and share their own advice for success. These are real people who left their careers behind to achieve their dreams of business ownership.
