What Business Should I Start?
What Business Should I Start? guides you through a unique seven step process
to identifying potential businesses you could start - making certain they meet your
needs, suit your personality, fit your interests and goals - and that they have a realistic
chance of success. The book then provides a framework for helping you choose among
those potential businesses.
This book is for you if:
• Youíve been saying, "Someday, Iíd like to own my own business."
• One of the things stopping you from launching your own business is that you arenít sure which business to start.
• You have a few serious ideas for different businesses but donít know how to choose one and get going.
• You have absolutely no idea which business to start; you donít know which businesses would suit you - your needs, personality and interests, financial situation and goals.
• Youíve had hundreds of ideas for new businesses but need help figuring out which ones to eliminate.
• You have an idea for a business but you want to make sure itís the right one before you take the leap and make the commitment.
• Youíre at a turning point in your life or career and are looking for direction.
• Youíre about to retire and are considering starting your own business.
• Friends and family keep suggesting business ideas to you, but none seem to be the right fit for you.
• Youíre trying to decide whether to launch a business or look for a job.
You probably do'nt need this book if you have already decided which business you want
to start and are confident that it is the right one for you (in which case you may benefit from
the companion to this book,
Six-Week Start-Up, also by Rhonda Abrams).
Millions of people dream about owning their own business; most never do. This
book helps you become one of the fortunate ones who succeed!
This book uses a seven step process to identify the type of business you should start.
The first step is to learn your entrepreneurial personality and style. The author writes, "The
fact that you may be shy or adverse to risks, or that you hate selling, doesn't mean you
can't be a successful entrepreneur." To determine your entrepreneur type, the book provides
a 54 question test.
To tabulate your test results, the book provides a grid. The grid will indicate which
type business is best for your personality (examples are; counselor, builder, caregiver,
maintainer, trainer, entertainer, and so on. Following that in the book is a detailed
description of each type and what businesses are best for each particular type.
And this is just step one in the seven step process to identify the type of business
you should start. I think this book is amazing. In fact, even if you don't want to start a
business, this book will give you insight into what kind of job you should get.
Reader Joshua Babbitt says, "This book is full of information that is helpful in learning
about or selecting a business to start. It is broken into seven steps that help readers learn
about themselves, their ideas, and a variety of small businesses that may fit with their aspirations.
"I found the 'popular business categories' and 'popular individual businesses'
sections to be full of interesting and useful information including details and statistics
about the business, references to places to find more information and ideas to help you in
starting that type of business. There is also a section on franchises that I found interesting.
"I'd recommend this book to someone who is looking to start a business but needs help in
sorting out their strengths and areas of interest, and to someone who is looking for a great
resource of information on about different types of small businesses."
