The reasons to start your own business are as varied as the dream itself. The rewards are many but the reality is that almost 80% of new business start-ups fail within the first five years.

Divided into stages, Building a Dream takes you step-by-step through constructing a successful business, from concept through to opening your doors. Starting at the beginning, you will:
  • assess your entrepreneurial skills and test the feasibility of your business ideas
  • choose between buying a business, starting a new business or acquiring a franchise
  • conduct a feasibility study to take your concept from the idea stage to the marketplace
  • review the options for organizing your business and protecting your idea, invention or design find the funding to get your enterprise off the ground
  • AND finish with a detailed business plan!
Building a Dream is an easy-to-follow workbook that gives you everything you need to make your small business a success:
  • quizzes and questionnaires for self-assessment
  • checklists and inventories to track your progress
  • sample forms and worksheets to help you analyze and forecast
  • websites to provide more information on topics of interest
  • templates for comprehensive business plans for two business types
  • two real-life business plans
Dreaming provides inspiration. Planning provides results. Working through Building a Dream will help you turn your dreams into a successful reality.
