An invaluable resource

An invaluable resource for new business owners! Ken's years of experience working with a variety of different start-ups lends itself to real-world advice that reflects how businesses operate in the 'information age.' The book isn't filled with a bunch of jargon or self-help slogans either - it provides clear plans of action for starting or growing a company.
