and other ramblings of a small business owner
How does a book that takes you step by step through the process of setting up a business sound? How about an active online community to offer support along the way sound? Pretty good, eh?
Start Your Business Week by Week by Steve Parks does exactly that. Not only is the book a practical guide to setting up your business, presented in bite-sized chunks so that you don’t get too overwhelmed with information, but there is a fantastic website that you can use to log your progress and interact with other people in exactly the same situation as you.
Can you tell that this is one of my favourite business startup books?
What I really like about this book is the way it’s split into weeks, giving you specific tasks to do each week. By following the book you work through the process of setting up your business and writing the all-important business plan. It’s a very easy read and includes quotes from successful entrepreneurs along the way to keep you inspired.
The companion website, Flying Startups, is a great place to hang out. You can keep a log (Pilot’s Log) of your progress and ask for advice on the forums. If you need a bit of boost this is just the place to come – keeping track of what everyone else is up to can work wonders for your motivation.
