The book delivers on exactly what it says on the cover and more. I would say it's for any entrepreneur but we're all busy so, yeah it's for busy entrepreneurs that need a solid blueprint for getting started and building momentum fast.

I loved the case studies and was able to relate to quite a few of the stories in the book. They help to demonstrate some of the ideas so the finance and managerial side don't seem academic like you get in a lot of books. An excellent resource for business owners or

My small business in real estate has survived and thrived for 14 years using many of the business principles and practical insights Sylvia Inks shares in Small Business Finance for the Busy Entrepreneur. Unfortunately, I learned my lessons the EXPENSIVE way through the school of hard knocks! I could have paid 10x the cost of this book and still considered it a bargain to get these lessons up front.

The author did an excellent job of outlining this book to make it practical and useful for any smal

Small Business Finance for the Busy Entrepreneur came into my life at just the right time. I started my own business three years ago, and have yet to make a profit. Sylvia Inks’ blueprint for building a solid, profitable business is laid out in a logical manner. It is easy to navigate and to select the chapters that are most relevant and timely. After reading this book I was thrilled to know I was already doing some money management tasks correctly (like separating my business and personal finan ...more

As someone who considers herself financially-savvy, starting my business after leaving corporate was still an eye-opener. If I had read Sylvia's book, I would have saved even more money and a lot of time figuring out how best to organize and manage the financial side of my business. This book is a very valuable investment. It's easy to read and can be picked up again and again. Many finance books can be overwhelming if you are starting from ground zero or are a financial mess. With Sylvia's book ...more

As an attorney, real estate investor & entrepreneur, I have faced/face many of the the challenges laid out in this book. I used to think that I was the "only one" who faced these struggles, but after reading this book I realize that these struggles are common among many entrepreneurs & small business owners. Most importantly, and thanks to this book, I learned that there are easy to apply solutions to these problems that will help my business run smoother than ever. I only wish that this ...more

Most small business owners (even those of us from corporate backgrounds who are exposed to financials) start a business because we want to help others and have a big dream. Little do we realize that not only understanding but managing our numbers closely to make informed decisions are critical to success. This book sheds light not only on why this is important but how we can do it in an easy-to-understand language and approach.

The author's ability to explain what are considered complex concepts
