Written by Dan Furman.
Published by Self-Counsel Press, 2009.


Dan Furman has revised and updated his best-selling, practical guide for people who want to start a business from their home.

When you hear the words home business, you may imagine someone sitting at a computer in their living room typing away while wearing their pajamas. Or maybe you picture someone hosting scrapbooking or candle parties. Or perhaps even the latest multilevel marketing "opportunity." This book isn't about any of those things. Instead, Start & Run a Real Home-Based Business will show you how to run a real, successful business that is based in your home—such as a daycare, tax preparation service, or hair salon.

You will also find this book indispensable if you want to
  • run a work-from-home computer-based business (e.g., doing web design, writing, medical billing, data entry, etc.),
  • offer a professional service for your local area (as a plumber, carpenter, computer network professional, landscaper, DJ, etc.), or
  • make a product and sell it, locally and/or online.
Written in an informative and highly entertaining style, Start & Run a Real Home-Based Business will teach you the fundamentals for small-business success, and is chock full of tips, many of which no other book will ever dare tell you. This is the perfect book for anyone who wants straight-forward advice on what really makes a home business succeed.

Entrepreneur Dan Furman runs a successful writing and marketing consulting company out of his home. For the past 20 years he has run several home businesses, and has helped countless others with marketing and running their own. Dan knows firsthand what makes a home business succeed—and fail—and is ready to share his vast wealth of knowledge and experiences with you.
