What did you love best about How To Start A Business Without Any Money?
This book provides some great real tips for starting a business on the cheap. Even if the suggested tips and resources don't meet your needs, the book helps create a mindset of making things work. Entrepreneurs cannot take no for an answer, and this is a great mindset to adopt early and well. The author also does what many entrepreneur authors have not done, which is start and describe a business as they write - applying the things they teach. I loved hearing about her business and seeing the ways she applied her concepts to her idea. It kept them relatable and realistic.
Often entrepreneur books will focus largely on the why, they leave me feeling amped with motivation and inspiration to tackle the world but I haven't the clue where to start. This book left me inspired as well but it did so by showing me that I truly don't have to risk my entire life by trying entrepreneurship and that I can attempt my ideas with creative low cost solutions.
I also loved the point the author makes that if you fail, you will be alright. It helped me realize that even the logically I am not risking much I need to attack my personal fear of failure and learn to embrace it. She also highlights that even if you find starting and running a business is not for you, the experience leaves you better armed to be a unique and valuable instrument to an existing business. This is one example of how the author inspires in a very practical way.
Do yourself a favor, and pickup this title. It is time and money well spent!

Really enjoyed this book practical, inspiring book. I've been thinking of starting my own business for decades and this might actually spur me on to do something about it! Rachel Bridge offers a strong combination of experienced writer and 'doer' in the Entrepreneur world. She brings all the knowledge and examples from her Times column and combines this with her own experiences of setting up her own business.
I have also bought the Kindle book as there are loads of internet links in the book which you can just click on rather than playing back from the audiobook.
Anything missing from the book? Well, I'd really loved to have had chapters on 'legal' stuff and 'employing people'. These are things which put a lot of people off starting up small businesses. Things like, 'Terms of Website use', 'contacts with buyers', 'agreements with suppliers', 'Public Liability insurance', 'employment law'. I know these are huge subjects but some useful starter info/links would be gold dust to me.
Anyway, I'm off to download her 'How to make a Million...' book now.

Very easy to listen to and to go back to as a reference book time after time. A must read for anyone starting out in business!
