The 100 Book Q&A – Advice for Starting a Business
What advice would you give to someone just thinking about starting a business?
There never will be a perfect time to start a business. I started Intertech in a recession. To limit risk, ask yourself if there’s a way to dip your toe in the water without quitting your day job. Also, set it up to succeed or fail quickly. It’s not about money or significant investment. From colocation workspaces to all the resources available through cloud-based services to the sharing economy, there are a lot of ways to start with minimal expense.
The amount of resources available for an entrepreneur is staggering. From books to workshops to online resources, the challenge isn’t to find resources—it’s to sift out what is practical and useful. My hope is that The 100 provides a quick read with plenty of actionable ideas for the aspiring entrepreneur.
