Tiny Business, Big Money is a must-read for any entrepreneur who wants to keep their company lean and profitable. This book will help you on your small business journey. Micro-businesses, or one-person businesses with no payroll and very limited overhead, are the ultimate entrepreneurial dream. With minimal start-up costs, low risk, and the ability to scale on your own terms, these small business models are incredibly appealing for entrepreneurs who want to escape traditional corporate ladders or self-employment models that require hiring a team. The problem is that there is very little information out there about how to build one successfully. When you try to Google "one-person business" or "microbusiness," you get results on solo freelancing or microloans—not the kind of advice you need if you want to take your business to $1 million in revenue. That's where this book comes in. Buy your copy today!
