BOOK REVIEW: The Young Entrepreneur's Guide to Starting & Running a Business
The Young Entrepreneur's Guide to Starting and Running a Business: Turn Your Ideas into Money!
This book is a very thorough guide for entrepreneurs, young or old.
Steve Mariotti uses very easy to understand language to guide you through the whole process of starting and running a business.
Beginning with creating a business, he guides you through all the steps you need to cover to be successful, including how to write a winning business plan.
Following the lessons in this book, you could use it as a hands on high school Economics or Accounting curriculum. Your student would understand the subject matter much better than using a traditional textbook.
I did receive this book free in return for a review. However, the opinions are my own. I am impressed with the author's ability to make interesting something that could be very dry. The examples given in each chapter of real people starting real businesses are very inspirational.
If you are a 'wanna-be' entrepreneur or if you need an interesting elective for your high school student, read this book (or have your student read it).
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
