Starting a business is both exciting and challenging. What do you need to know your first year? What pitfalls must you avoid? The process of starting a business can be compared to connecting together the links in a chain. Every component of the business is a single link. For example, sales and marketing would be one link while managing expenses would be another. Focus and absolute determination pulls the chain. It is like the engine in an automobile. The engine gives forth horsepower and is the driving force behind the automobile. The windshield, tires, steering wheel and transmission are all components that enable the automobile to run successfully. This book considers the most important components or links in the chain and how they all fit together. 'Starting A Successful Business in 2010' can help you learn critical business practices while avoiding the most common pitfalls. Getting a business started is not only rewarding, it is an exciting journey. The only limit is your imagination. So, buckle up and hang on. This could be your best year ever!
