The author has written a book for hard-working and imaginative people – entrepreneurs – who have a passion to create valuable technology, products, and companies. Whether you are an inventor with an idea, an aspiring entrepreneur of any age, or a highly experienced senior leader, your goal is to start with an idea and create a successfully-funded start-up company.The ability to navigate the entrepreneurial environment is enhanced by following the guidance provided by the serial entrepreneur and author of the book “The Smart Entrepreneur: The Book Investors Don't Want You to Read.”Unlike many business books that only tell the reader what to do in general terms, the focus of this book is on the specific actionable activities and process-oriented details of “how” to execute in a disciplined manner and achieve success.So, why wouldn't an investor want you to read this book? Perhaps they would if they believed you would perfectly execute on the idea and plan you presented. However, nothing ever works perfectly. There are a multitude of reasons why the best expectations for a business are never realized. What happens when things don't go right? In the worst of circumstances investors secure greater control and equity through the funding agreements they originally made with the founders.The ability of investors to secure greater control and ownership lies at the heart of the entrepreneur's relationship with an investor. Avoiding pitfalls and preserving founder equity underpins the author's approach to entrepreneurship.The author has structured the chapters of the book around eleven chronological essential topics: (1) founder vision and invention, (2) due diligence by founders on the founding team, (3) incorporation mechanics, (4) technology and intellectual property development, (5) marketing and sales plan, (6) financial plan, (7) valuation of the opportunity, (8) business plan, (9) preparations for investment and investors, (10) investor network, and (11) leadership and early-stage company operations.The goals of this book are to help an entrepreneur: (1) achieve his/her vision, (2) maximize her/his enterprise's value and return on investment, (3) achieve results efficiently and preserve the equity of founders, (4) avoid catastrophic pitfalls, (5) minimize stress and uncertainty inherent in the processes.The book provides insights and guidance to help an entrepreneur negotiate the difficult issues that often delay or thwart success. The book is intended to help entrepreneurs maximize the starting value of the enterprise, preserve equity along the way, and provide help with early-stage management issues that can cause the entrepreneur to stumble and lose traction.This book also attempts to provide realism to the process of entrepreneurship by outlining what is reasonable and what is not. The author states that “as a founder and leader of your company, how you respond to challenges makes a difference in the success of your endeavor.It is good to be realistic about entrepreneurship. If you are aware of how things might work, and might not work, it will make you more keenly aware of what needs to be done to best assure success. That is why I wrote this book.”

Most entrepreneurs do not succeed in their attempt to create a sustainable business from their venture idea. There are several reasons for the very high failure rates in start-up and social entrepreneurship, but most can be traced back to a lack of understanding of how a start-up should be managed in its different phases, from the identification of the opportunity to the management of the established and growing venture. This book analyses the start-up process and suggests theoretical insights, methods and tools that will help the entrepreneur to manage the risk associated with unknowns and uncertainties and that will increase the chances of success. The framework presented, the SMART entrepreneurial process, draws heavily on “modern” entrepreneurial management theory such as the lean start-up method and effectual entrepreneurship, but combines these approaches with suggestions for practical implementation. The book is mainly written with budding for-profit start-uppers in mind, but provides insights that are equally useful for social entrepreneurs.

Every entrepreneur sets out to solve a problem or series of identified problems in society and then grow a profitable business. Growth is the most important aspect of a business's life cycle; without it, no business succeeds and every entrepreneur would just turn out a failure. Growth means many things to many entrepreneurs and businesses. It can mean making more sales, generating more revenue, creating more product lines, expanding to new locations, getting more funding in the case of startups, increasing capacity by hiring and so much more. Among the many things that make up growth for a business, generating more sales and making more money is at the forefront of it. Without more revenue, no business would become self-sustaining, and business death would become an eventuality. This is why marketing is the most important thing every business needs to succeed in to grow… According to the US Chamber of Commerce… 8 out of every 10 small business close within the first 5 years of establishment. Why is this shocking statistic possible? I will tell you. It's obviously because of the lack of sales and generation of revenue to power the growth of the business. And how do they generate revenues? By having a continuous inflow of customers to serve, who pay them… And how do they get a steady inflow of customers? By marketing continuously and driving in new prospects through brand awareness and other marketing campaign objectives. Research shows that businesses that master the art of marketing early enough in their life cycle, experience massive growth than those that do not. Apple Inc. succeeded not because they created wonderful and innovative products from the beginning but because Steve Jobs was a wonder at marketing their creations and getting them into as many offices and homes as possible. So, as an entrepreneur, if you want to succeed with your venture or business, you must focus on marketing to grow your business and become profitable… Business synergy is one of the often overlooked and fastest methods to implement marketing and grow exponentially. The problem is that many entrepreneurs do not necessarily pay attention to business synergy or understand it from the perspective from which they can see how powerful synergy is to the growth of their business. But that's about to change. In this book, I want to help as many entrepreneurs as are reading this book to lift the blindfold from their eyes and get them to see the new light of synergy in the core areas of their businesses, where they can implement it and quickly grow and become profitable. Synergy is not just for big corporations with deep pockets, large teams, and sophisticated strategies that make them able to make industry shaking synergistic moves. We are going to explore synergy at the microlevel… The level where it even matters more for small businesses and entrepreneurs like you. Let’s begin!

Small firms in Chicago employ more than 1.6 million individuals—nearly 50 percent of the private work force, according to a new study released this fall by the Small Business Administration. The survey, which defines small firms as those employing less than 500 people, also shows that these businesses generate 47 percent of the area's total receipts of $278 billion dollars. However, SBA statistics also reveal that, on average, of the small businesses starting today, 53 percent will not be in business four years from now. Of these closings, it's estimated that 15 percent will close due to business failures. Chicago businessman Jay Goltz understands what it takes for a small business to succeed. During the past twenty years he has owned and operated Artists' Frame Service in Chicago. Goltz started the business in 1978, and today it's the largest, custom retail picture framing facility in the world. Now, Goltz shares some his secrets of success.

They say business ideas are dime a dozen but I don't fully agree with this!! If you want pursue a idea similar to that of a multi national conglomerate you are sure to go bust.. Unless have resources for it.. All that aside ideas are very important. Otherwise you will be competing in red ocean(basically from the book blue ocean strategy the idea is to focus on niche or business where there is not much competition) . But that doesn't stop there. Many people waste time by coming up idea after idea without taking action,(they are called wanterpreneurs) which is of no use .. After idea test for its validity and money making potential and pursue it "execution" is name of the game!! . Test test test and improvise on your initial idea or hypothesis!!

Too many start-ups don't make the grade - what makes a successful business take off? Starting a new business is exciting, but there are many traps for the unwary. Some would-be entrepreneurs stick so firmly to their step-by-step guides that they don't see what's really going on. Others become so obsessed with potential problems they lose sight of the bigger picture. What they really need, according to serial entrepreneur Norm Brodsky, is a mindset that will help them to stay focussed on the real goals and grab opportunities whenever they arise. He calls it 'the knack'. It's helped him to build eight phenomenally successful companies, and in this book he uses stories of real companies facing real challenges to show you how to develop it too.

EVERY ENTREPRENEUR NEEDS A HAPPY EXIT STRATEGY! 'So, what's your exit strategy?' The question often leaves most entrepreneurs stumped as running a business leaves little time to think about anything else. While business owners recognize that they may have to exit their business at some point, few give enough thought to how they will sell it. And fewer prepare for it. Invariably, when a prospective buyer appears or an offer is made, or when an unforeseen health or financial contingency arises, they scramble to respond. Even those rare entrepreneurs who have given thought to an exit often end up with seller's remorse. The Art of a Happy Exit helps entrepreneurs get prepared for all that selling their business entails. The book covers not just the Outside game-positioning, prospecting, finding professional partners, negotiating, structuring, and executing, but the critical Inside game-the mental and emotional preparation needed even while retaining customers, employees, and the business. K. Srikrishna tells the stories of twenty entrepreneurs from India and the United States who've sold their businesses to varying degrees of happiness. Between the stories, he lays out the typical steps involved in a business sale, each with its own practical checklist. The result is a book that will help you gain greater self-awareness of what you seek and how best to go about it, and ensure the happiness of all involved with the outcome.

All of us are fascinated by the lives and backgrounds of the rich (and sometimes famous). Behind every entrepreneur is a story. Andrew Davidson has interviewed dozens of leading entrepreneurs over many years. He has asked the questions we all want to ask. He has probed into their backgrounds, delved into their psyche.

Here he pulls together all the information, and takes an overall look at the bigger picture and what we can learn from the living giants, who did it their way. Davidson interprets the psychology of success, telling the entrepreneurs' stories in their own words, and the words of the people closest to them.

This book presents the economic theories with regards to the entrepreneur of yesterday and those of more recent years, on which issue research has been developing exponentially since the last third of the 20th Century.
