For years, ASL has published a well-received resource for entrepreneurs called the “New Business Start-Up Guide.” The newest edition adds helpful sections on how to value a start-up, and how to value an ongoing business. In addition, there are new exhibits on: “Top Five Challenges Facing Start-ups Today” and “Ten Governing Principles for a Start-up.” All the other sections have been updated for the latest best practices, and links to useful resources.
The handy sixty-five page start-up guide contains five chapters entitled:
- Determining the Business Viability
- Planning Your Business
- Registering with Regulatory Agencies
- Setting up Operations
- Running Your Business
Appendices include ideas for sources of funding, help on which type of entity to use for your start-up, and income tax and payroll tax information. Finally, there is a new business checklist to make sure you cover all your bases.
Paper copies are available on request.
