'How do you know what you don't know?'

When you're thinking about or are new into business you simply don't know the questions to ask to find out if the idea will work. And usually, there's no-one around to tell you. Your accountant will mostly ask financial and legal questions, but what about marketing and market research?

Will Your Business Idea Work? workbook was written with hindsight wisdom that author, June Hope wished she had access to prior to commencing two previous businesses. It poses the questions you will need answers to and instructs and prompts how to find those answers.

The companion text Planning for Small Business Success provides all the information you'll need to better understand why you need to ask these questions and explains basic business principles in an easy-to-understand way.

Every new business person NEEDS this workbook. It forms the basis of, or could form a mini-business plan.

Can you afford NOT to find out if your business idea will work BEFORE you invest your hard-earned money?
