This book has it all, it's the Ranger Handbook for making a transition from your present situation to a small business owner. I like the author's backgrounds and straight shooting advice from their proven experience as entrepreneurs and coaches. They ask the tough questions and present practical advice rather than theory or research. Theory is fine in the classroom, but practical experience in the field wins every time; and this team knows how to win. I hope veterans and others will take the time to read "Making the Jump into Small Business" and find it as informative, insightful, and thoughtful as I have.

Congratulations David Nilssen & Jeff Levy, Making the Jump into Small Business Ownership, for a direct approach to entrepreneurship "The hard truth. Much of corporate America has proven itself to be obsessed with profit. Relying on corporate giants for dependable salaries and benefits is a gamble at best. And to expect an employer - large or small - to provide us retirement benefits to support our long-term needs is nothing short of naïve." Thank you David Nilssen & Jeff Levy
