SAN DIEGO, Jan. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In the new, idea-rich book Business, Business, Business! The Entrepreneur's Guide to Strategies, Secrets and Savings, serial entrepreneur John Livingstone shares his experience so new and existing entrepreneurs don't make the mistakes that kill so many businesses. There are almost 30 million small businesses in the United States and yet nearly 50 % of new businesses fail by their fifth year, reports the SBA's Office of Advocacy.
John Livingstone, the author, is a successful entrepreneur who, throughout forty years, has never had a paycheck unless he wrote one to himself. Livingstone, using personal anecdotes, shares with business owners his money-saving, winning strategies that will significantly benefit any business right now.
Interviewing many university business studies graduates, Livingstone quickly learned that the majority of graduates did not even have the most basic understanding of how to launch or run a business. Jim Myer MBA, of Chicago, wrote to Livingstone, "I learned more from this book than I did in six years of university."
