Congratulations! If you're reading The Bootstrapper's Bible, you're one of tens of thousands of entrepreneurs who are considering whether to start a business. There is no shortage of reasons for it: Job security is at an all-time low in America – sometimes it feels like the only company you can trust is the one that you start yourself! Add that to the fact that the power of the Internet has not only greatly democratized the economy and lowered the barrier to entry for a lot of people, but has opened up whole new industries, and you've got a pretty compelling case to strike out on your own. Whether you're transitioning from an old career into a new one, facing the all-too-familiar struggle to stay at home with the kids and remain productive, or retiring and looking for what's next, a business or home- based business is a great opportunity. Starting one is within reach for just about anybody who's willing to take on the risk and work hard. If you're sure you want to get started, but don't know how to get started, you've got the right e-book.
