BookLife by Publishers Weekly

"Many people dream about starting their own businesses. ... Sullivan ... seeks to increase the odds of success in this in-depth informative guide. The key, she states, is to discover what excites your passion and then match it with a venture. The last section is perhaps the most crucial, exploring the all-important concept of viability, followed by a lengthy list of resources for new business owners. While Sullivan doesn’t claim to have a roadmap to success, she does arm readers with knowledge that will be handy in getting there.” BookLife by Publishers Weekly



The prospect of being one's own boss appeals to millions of people. Yet it can be challenging to know what type of enterprise to create or when to make the leap.

Entrepreneurs include employees experiencing burnout, baby boomers who are too vibrant to retire and graduates who dread the thought of working in an office cubicle for 50 years.

Launching a successful venture is a five-step process:

  • Step one involves tapping into what sparks one's enthusiasm.
  • Step two entails looking at areas where there is a demand for products and services and selecting the types of people one feels impassioned to serve such as seniors, children or businesses.
  • Step three is matchmaking—taking ideas from steps one and two then combining them to identify concepts that resonate. The greater the excitement for what individuals are doing, the more likely they are to prosper.
  • Step four encompasses navigating the market research process.
  • Step five is about moving forward and taking 50 action steps to make it happen.
