The Entrepreneur

and the Business Idea

 

Confederation College

Entrepreneurship Series

 

 

 

If you ever wondered what entrepreneurs are like; where they look for business ideas and opportunities, and what kinds of thinking and tools some of them use in their approach to a possible business start-up, then this introductory book should prove very helpful to you. It includes both a self-assessment and a business opportunity assessment tool, and advocates a "damage control approach" to getting into business.
