Have you ever thought about the possibility of earning money by running a side business? Perhaps you have intentions of one day starting your own business, but you are not quite prepared to quit your day job. Or maybe this economy has been particularly tough for you and a second income sounds pretty good right about now. As the small business librarian at the Cecil County Public Library, I meet many people who are interested in starting a side business. Attorney Richard Stim and Lisa Guerin, J.D. have co-authored Running a Side Business: How to Create a Second Income.
This book delves into the reality of running a side business. It asks important questions to the reader like, "Can you really maintain your full time job and your side business?" The book offers insight into managing your money and gives readers tips on record keeping and bookkeeping, two key skills for any small business owner. Did you know that it is possible to avoid having to use a lawyer to start a business? There is an entire chapter dedicated to this very thing.
So if you are ready to take the leap into entrepreneurship and start that side business you have been dreaming about for years, be sure to pick up a copy of this book!
