Books: Start and Run a Real Home-Based Business

We are going to look into a book named Start and Run a Real Home-Based Business by Dan Furman.

It has been a few years since the first time I made my way though this book and I’m still very impressed with the writing and information the second time around.

In general, I’m a big fan of business books. Although I tend to shy away from the “believe in yourself and the universe will give you want you want without hard work” style of writing.

Also, dry and boring books full of corporate speak and flow charts aren’t for me. I like my books to be a bit more down to earth and practical. That’s why this book was and still is for me.

The following are a few reasons I think the book will be for you as well.

Books: Do the Web Write: Writing for and Marketing Your Website

Like a fledgling author staring at a page with nothing but “Chapter 1” written down, many business owners have terrific ideas but don’t know how to communicate them effectively.

Others are very aware they need to produce something but have no idea what to say beyond a vague “Please buy my product or service.”

Do the Web Write: Writing for and Marketing your Web by Dan Furman covers the fine art of content writing and getting your point across plainly without popular buzzwords. If there’s anything the author can’t stand it’s pointless buzzwords and other flowery speech.

This book is ideal for people wanting “real person” talk.

Books: WE Are Smarter Than ME

It’s not often that I read something that immediately grabs my interest and consistently presents me with new thoughts causing me to think; “that is a SOLID idea”.  The key word being “consistently” as many books will present a good idea within its pages (or several if you are lucky), but WE are Smarter than ME by Barry Libert & Jon Spector kept on delivering inspiring and informed ideas the more I read.
