Are you cut out to be a business owner? If so, what sort of business might you conduct from the comfort of your living room – clad only in, say, tube socks and a thong? And while we’re at it, how much should customers pony up for your services?
If such questions have ever scurried through your mind, you won’t want to miss tonight’s edition of Blurb!
Because, as their Blurb! Book of the Week, hosts Sally Shields and Dr. Kent have picked Will Limkemann‘s The Successful Home Business Guide.
This 224-page work “offers complete and practical advice, along with step-by-step instructions” on getting started on the road to domestic entrepreneurship.
And that’s a subject its author should know. In addition to serving as an adviser to scores of home-business owners throughout his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, Will runs three of his own businesses from home.
“With growing unemployment, and retirees needing to supplement diminishing pensions, more people than ever are contemplating starting businesses in their homes,” he says of the $300 billion home-business sector of our nation’s economy.
Every Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET, Sally and Dr. Kent review not books themselves but prerecorded pitches from five writers whose literary works are hot off the presses.
And each scribe gets a mere three minutes to convince the hosts that theirs is the book worth cracking. But if they succeed, they capture the coveted Book of the Week title.
That means Sally and Dr. Kent post it prominently on the Blurb! website, just as they did with Will’s book.
To top it all off, the winning author gets a guest spot on the show, during which to pitch his or her book live to listeners worldwide, just as will Will appear on tonight’s show.
