I know these Humble book bundles don't always go down overly well, but I thought this would be a nice little read for anybody wishing to start their own company.
I did about 7 years ago, and to be honest I have never looked back. Admittedly it's not always as easy as one would think from the get go, there are obviously ups and downs with said path, but reaping the benefits of your own hard work through your own company really is worth while.
I appreciate the books seem to be Technology focused, but there are probably a lot of tips and advice you could take from this.
I really do hope this helps :)
