My business-y parents gave me this book as a Christmas gift. I think their intentions were good, but it's mostly geared to folks who who truly have a small business. (Hint: *not* a writer who sits at her computer screen all day). That said, writing *is* a business, especially when you are published, or looking to get published, or a freelance writer.

I did glean some good tips on business etiquette, product branding, cold calls/emails, and customer service. JJ Ramburg's writing is clear, concise

Excellent, easy read! Full of great tips for anyone who owns a small business or is thinking of starting one. I think some of the tips are even useful for running a household. I checked this out from the library, but liked it so much that I bought my own copy.

Lots of tips. Business tips. :) (Sorry for the Lloyd Dobler quote.)

I found a few applicable to my business, so definitely worth a skim!

This is a good book. It has bite sized ideas that are easy to read. Along side practical ways that the ideas can work, it makes for a good starting point for any small business owner.
