If you are a creative/artistic person looking to build your own business then I highly recommend this free eBook
by David Parrish, MBA, MCMI, AIMC, MCIM, MIBA
David has offered this book royalty free and although it was written a few years ago, the content is great.
Some of the details around Tax and Government resources may not be applicable but all or the content on business principals and mindset are really well written, concise and clear.
There is no point re-inventing the wheel so I am going to simply share the book here..
Acknowledgement to David is in the PDF and there are links to his website if you want to check it out.
