I've seen a lot of posts online recently about home-based businesses and people asking how to handle problems they've encountered since they started one. I always want to just tell them to buy my book and read it, PLEASE, but since I hate spammers I'll confine my sales pitch to this venue.
PLEASE, for the love of God, if you want to start a home-based business, buy Not So Common Sense....It won't hurt you, and it can only help, I swear to you. It's a quick read, it has real-life examples of common situations that you WILL encounter, and it might help you reinforce your backbone a little if you take the advice in it to heart.
It's not just for bakers, either. Home-based businesses face the same challenges regardless of what they're selling, and I tried to make it as universal as possible. There have been a couple of positive reviews that went up on Amazon recently, so I'm glad to see that it's been well-received by people who have read it so far.
This news report about a heinous wedding cake really got me mad the other day, because if the person who made the horrible cake in it had read my book and been professional, she might not have inspired the newscaster's comment at the end about being leery of home-based business owners. If you or anyone you know is starting or thinking of starting a home-based business or whatever type, PLEASE put Not So Common Sense on a gift list for them. It might help them raise the bar for themselves and all the rest of us too!
