I wrote this book for you as a manager, someone who is the
steward of any organization, be it large or small. The concepts of
business apply no matter whether you are an entrepreneur or a
manager for a well-established, publicly traded company.
Companies are organizations, no matter what their size, type, or
product. This means you must have an integrated business plan no
matter who you are or what you do. Business planning is important
whether you are a start-up company in e-business or working on a
multinational planning team.
Entrepreneurs—and entrepreneurial companies—live or die by the quality of their plans and proposals. Whether it's to get funding for a new product line or business from a client, writing hard-hitting prose that answers essential questions and makes specific requests is an indispensable skill. Entrepreneur, ad man, and writing teacher Dennis Chambers shows how entrepreneurs can persuade people,

The number of women entering small business ownership has increased significantly
across the world. These women make a crucial contribution to the economic growth and
development of local, national and global economies. Yet, despite their increasing
numbers, they have received little attention from the academic community and research
into the experiences of women small business owners is confined to a handful of countries.
The work on women entrepreneurs is far more extensive and generally eclipses the
area of small business ownership.

It was called the "Breakfast for Champions," the annual
fundraiser to benefit the Commonwealth Institute, a non-profit
organization that helps women develop entrepreneurial skills and
expertise. On this particular June morning in 2001, more than
1,000 women gathered in the grand ballroom of Boston's Fairmont
Copley Hotel to network and to honor women entrepreneurs.
Virtually the entire "who's who" of the women's business
community was there, as well as investors, lawyers, and others
who work with and support women-led businesses.
A detailed empirical study of how small business owners finance their
enterprises, this volume compares the experiences of women with
those of men. The author redresses an over-reliance on subjective
and anecdotal evidence of discrimination in this area with a controlled
study of forty matched pairs of male/female owners, and their
strategies for raising finances.
The book finds considerable similarities between female and male
entrepreneurs in the type and amount of finance used in the business.
Women are becoming entrepreneurs at a record pace. Whether we are
motivated to create our own wealth, have the flexibility to work and
raise a family, or want more from life than simply churning out a
paycheck—women everywhere are making the move. We are exchanging
our corporate 401(k)s and benefits for the liberation and creative
fulfillment of entrepreneurship. So why aren’t you?
In my small business consulting experience, I have noticed a similar
attribute that is common in most entrepreneurs and business owners. Most are
“doers” rather than “planners.”
In reality, being a doer is perhaps the ultimate mark of a successful person. It’s
what makes entrepreneurs a rare breed. Rather than thinking or wishing, they
get out there and make something happen.

You know their names today, even though they made their mark 100 years
ago and more. Cornelius Vanderbilt (railroads), Andrew Carnegie (steel),
John D. Rockefeller (oil), Marshall Field (retailing), and Henry Ford
(automobiles) left an enduring legacy of innovation, market dominance, and vast fortunes. They are among a handful of extraordinary entrepreneurs
who not only achieved great wealth, but also won international
The 10 problems of least concern are generally issues of limited exposure to most small-busi-
ness owners and typically find themselves at the bottom of the ranking each year. Three prob-
lems are new to the top 10 of least concern and one problem in the group is new to the survey.
“Exporting My Products/Services” holds onto the 75th
ranking, a position held for six of
seven editions that it has been listed as a problem. It moved up one position in 2000, replaced
by the problem “Y2K Impacts.
ranked problem in the survey is “Undocumented Workers,” a problem first
introduced in 2008. Seven percent find it a critical problem compared to 55 percent who do
not. While the issue draws substantial media attention and passionate view on both sides, the
number of small-business owners concerned by the business implications of undocumented
workers is minimal.
“Access to High-Speed Internet” ranks 73rd
and is critical for 7 percent of small-business

Over the last 5 years working as an advisor to start-up businesses I’ve met with over 1,000 people to advise them about starting and running a small business. I’ve seen people from all sorts of life, with all sorts of skills and all sorts of reasons for becoming entrepreneurs. I’ve seen businesses start-up and flourish and I’ve seen them stutter and fade away. I’ve watched good business ideas fail to launch and I’ve seen some poor ones (in my opinion!) go on to success. This first hand access to SME successes and failures has allowed me to develop my...
