MAKE IT ON YOUR OWN!

 

How to Succeed in Your Own Business


By: Barrie Jackson



 

 

 

ABOUT THIS BOOK

 

 

Barrie Jackson knew from personal experience what it takes to run a business and make it succeed. In this book he shows you how to do it.


If you're looking for a dry, academic treatise on buying a business - you'll be disappointed. On the other hand, if you're looking for practical, hands-on information, that you can put to immediate use, you'll be delighted.

 

Barrie illustrates many of his points with anecdotes from his own business adventures. This makes for interesting reading with a "practical punch".

 

So, if you've ever dreamed of buying a business - take a read at what Barrie has to say first. You'll learn a lot from his personal experience and mistakes.
