The Home Office From Hell Cure
Transform your Underperforming Time-sucking Homebased Business Into A Runaway SuccessBook - 2008
A step-by-step guide to transforming one's home-based business into a profitable enterprise outlines a one-hundred-day program of easy-to-implement, scheduled tasks designed to bolster growth and address key areas of concern. Original.
Working from home has several advantages: no dress code, no office hours, and no annoying daily commute. The disadvantages? Many home business owners were never taught the skills needed to organize an office, create a business plan, or market themselves or their product. Landers, a "serial entrepreneur," founder of five companies, and a small business consultant, offers a humorous but instructive guide for home business owners who want to avoid stagnation and build a successful, effective business. Brief chapters discuss basic topics such as negotiating for office space, press releases, marketing, and hiring staff. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
