"199 Internet-Based Businesses You Can Start With Less Than One Thousand Dollars" is a very insightful and hands on type of book. Author Sharon L. Cohen gives the reader many helpful insights into how one can begin a business, what to look for and expect concerning the positive as well as the negative aspects. She deals with running a business online, how to set up a home office, advertising, creating an effective web-site and so much more. Then after helping the reader learn what must be done to get a business up and running she devotes the rest of the book to many different types of businesses that can be started within this one thousand dollar amount.
She gives information on businesses such as: Advertising, Animals, Clothing, Collectibles, Food, Health Care, Writing and so much more. Each of these areas, as well as others, is expanded upon giving the reader a better understanding of what might work in their local area. She certainly helps the reader see the importance of finding their own niche and not trying to just copy someone's work. There are personal stories included throughout the book of those who have started their own business to provide inspiration and support.
There is a very helpful business plan included at the end of the book as well as a table of contents to help the reader jump around should they be looking for a particular area of interest. I found this to be a very insightful book and one that anyone who is considering starting a new business should read.
