"Unbelievable! At last, a business book composed not of anodyne observations and bromides, but one filled with concrete, rubber-meets-the-road tips that every entrepreneur should know. Save yourself years of wasted time, and millions of squandered VC dollars, and study this book." -- Patrick M. Byrne Ph.D., CEO, Overstock.com "So many business books today focus on how to start a business by raising venture capital and growing it in the Silicon Valley way. This book is for every man and woman across the USA who is interested in starting a business, and focuses on the fundamentals that are universal to all businesses - ranging from the local flower shop to a business that could grow into a future IPO blockbuster!" --Norm Brodsky, senior contributing editor, Inc. magazine "The Sloan brothers are the rock stars of entrepreneurship!" - Michigan governor Jennifer M. Granholm "Don't pick up this book, unless you're serious about starting a business. The Sloan brothers make it clear that 'the time is now.' These guys will get you totally fired up!" - Pat Croce, best-selling author of I Feel Great and You Will, Too! and Lead or Get Off the Pot! "Okay, dreamers. No more excuses. The Sloan brothers have packaged up all of their street wisdom, folded in with dozens of inspiring stories about other successful entrepreneurs - so you can stop dreaming and start doing. The practical know-how you need to build a plan for your business is inside this book." - Verne Harnish, CEO, Gazelles and Founder, Young Entrepreneurs Organization
