I received this book for review and am happy to respond.
Although this excellent guide is aimed initially at those in the financial planning sector, it is in fact a useful tool for anyone starting up or currently running a business. The fundamentals are the same and can be adapted to suit the situation.
The author speaks with authority from experience. Importantly, he speaks from the heart and is not afraid to relate his own experiences - adverse or otherwise. The first-hand account covers a wide range of issues and topics for consideration. These must be incorporated into a business plan. The chapters cover important aspects for consideration of administration, recruitment, outsourcing, the delicate subject of ‘how much to charge’, networking, communication and technology, to name but a few.
The book also covers various legal aspects that are important.
I would like to have been able to reach the chosen chapter when I clicked on the link in the Table of Contents instead of being taken to the front of the book. I found this frustrating.
However, that aside, all in all it is a worthy addition to the bookshelf - virtual or otherwise - of anyone wishing to succeed and move with the times in best business practices.
