irst released in 1992, this book has helped scores of young entrepreneurs start their own businesses. This new edition contains over fifty ideas for making money by operating your own one person business.
ach entry describes the idea and then lists supplies needed, time involved, what to charge, how to advertise and then a set of
that will make it easier to make the business a success.
dmittedly, some of the ideas here are questionable and probably won't work in many areas. I think you can skip over jobs like phone information-line organizer, rock painter, silver polisher, collectibles show organizer and disc jockey.

f you do check out this book, be sure to read the section entitled
that outlines safety, local ordinances, financial risk, taxes and other things of which you should be aware.
