The First Real Steps.
You are here because you are looking for some help, you want to know “Where” to begin.
This is what I can share with you...
Seeing a very clear and specific need I have created this post about my book.
I will be up-front and blunt, yes it is a bit of self-advertisement, however, that is not the only point or even the main purpose to this article.
Let’s back-up for a moment…
I wrote “The First Real Steps” eBook book a few years back to fill a void. While seeking info about starting my own business I found a significant lack of information about “where” exactly to begin.
Over and over I kept finding resources that (as an example) started the subject at the letter “G” and not “A”!…it was CRAZY!
I wondered many times “where is the real beginning to this?!?”
Many of the materials had horrible information and advise for starting a business “Well just start it and fill in the blanks as you go!” Which as you can imagine will lead to some severe issues later on!
That’s almost like saying: “Oh heck, just get in the car, turn it on and hit the gas pedal!, don’t worry about learning how to drive…just make it GO!”
I found that type of “business advise” to be harmful, dishonest and reckless!
The other thing that I also found was that many of these “help” books and videos offer incomplete information (or worse) inaccurate information on the subject.
Once I dug a bit deeper I found that they didn’t really want to help anybody but were only in it for the money.
Please don’t misunderstand, there is nothing wrong with doing things for money! That is after-all the only real reason for going into business in the first place!
Like everything else however there is a right way and a wrong way to do it!
There IS a right-way to start a business correctly!
After spending a lot of time and money searching and researching for the correct answers I realized that there was no “One” book with all of the information that I had gathered. Sure, there are thousands of “how to start a business” books and videos but none that started AT the real beginning…at the VERY Beginning!
Here is more info and an excerpt from my book, check it out. If you like what you see you can click on the book cover image or the order button at bottom of this article to order your copy. It’s only $10.00, which will not make me rich but it will help to offset the costs of getting it published.
From the book: The First Real Steps by Chris Smith:
“Unlike many other beginner books about starting your own business this book does start at the real beginning of the process.
Take first smart steps before diving in to your first small business adventure. This book has been created specifically for the person who wants to learn how to start a small business but has very little knowledge of where the real beginning is and how to start“
Here is another excerpt-paragraph from the book:
“If you are for the most part organized and willing to do some work all you really need is some simple information to get moving in the right direction.
The fact is, every single day all over the world ordinary people start and successfully operate businesses!
In other words, do not let the lack of a professional degree or a stellar I.Q. prevent you from attaining your goals and starting your own business. Much of this is basic common-sense and almost anybody can do it.
Business at its core is very simple; Business is nothing more than an exchange of one thing of value for another. In our current system, it is usually selling a product or a service for money (yes it really is that simple)
The whole point of a business is to make a profit. If not, then it is either a charity or a hobby. Both of these things have value in their own right. However, they should not be confused with an actual business“.
That was just a small sample of the eBook, no, it’s nothing earth-shattering as some of the others would have you believe about their books.
It’s just a simple and straight-forward info to help people who want to start a business find a solid starting place.
There is some good nuts-and-bolts type of information in it to help guide people to the correct things they will need to do to get started. This book is not all-inclusive but it will help you to get a firm and solid start in the right direction.
Thank you for your time!
