    Book details

Tens of thousands of new businesses are launched each year in Britain alone. Indeed, the government now estimate that by 2020 well over half of the working population will be employed by companies with a workforce of less than 20 and many of these will be one-man operations. The world of self-employment offers great opportunities for us to live and work the way we want to and, in some cases, can also be a route to huge financial success. Sadly, though, entrepreneurial zeal is rarely matched by a natural inclination toward administration. Starting Your Own Business cuts through the jargon to provide incisive, realistic, authoritative and detailed information that aims to help the novice avoid some of the serious pitfalls that can cripple a busines idea at birth. It is the only business manual that anyone would need to ensure that your new venture gets safely off the ground.

Terry Burrows has set up a number of successful businesses in the areas of music, IT consultancy and book publishing, the first of which he started as a teenage student. After completing his business education, he began a career as a systems and business analyst. Within four years he was responsible for managing the finance and marketing systems for one of Europe's largest retailers. Two years later he "retired" from full-time employment to concentrate on making a living from his own personal interests. A fanatical proponent of "Me PLC", over the past six years he has written approaching 30 books (as well as for CD-ROMs, encyclopedias and magazines) on subjects as diverse as psychology, business and management, modern history, the Internet, computer software, popular culture and music tuition. His work has been published in 12 different countries and translated into seven other languages.

Review Text

  • By Mike CW on 8 July 2003

    I've read a few of new biz books, and this is the only one that:a) answers all the necessary questions (what can you claim on taxes? Is it worth getting accountants in etc etc)b) does it in some style, without any patronising tones or sad jokes.The guy who wrote this is clearly likeable and knowledgeable and anyone starting up a business/going freelance should get it.Don't think the design is busy either - helps break up text.
