Book Excerpt: ‘Spark and Hustle: Launch and Grow Your Small Business Now’ by Tory Johnson – ABC News

The Buckster Writes:

Being a new small business has been very enlightening and a very good learning lesson.  For those of you desiring to start your own business without a doubt I would say go for it.  Over the last several years the economy has not been the best but then again I compare it to having children.  If you are waiting for the perfect time it may never present itself. I am not saying be reckless and go in blind but what I am saying is the experience will be worthwhile.  I have now been in business going on 6 years. I started my business the day after I got discharged from Bankruptcy.  I had no credit! Absolutely none and two faithful investors one of which I just paid off and about to start paying the other. The company is almost debt free but in terms of the amount of debt owed its really none.  I have operated on purely a cash basis.  Now that we are finally getting that traction with contracts I am about ready to build around some credit with the idea that as much as possible I will still operate on a cash basis.  This will allow the business to stay strong moving forward into the international realm of business.  I say all this to support the book Spark & Hustle. Although I havent read the full book the parts I have has been extremely strong.  Anyone that is tettering on starting a small business take a read to this book.  Over the next several weeks I will come back with a full detail of my thoughts on this book.  So far Ms. Johnson has been right on the  money just looking at it from my experiences of business ownership.  Enjoy the Read!!!!
