About the Book

Mark Twain said, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.” I encourage every child to start his or her own business in college or high school, a time when no mortgage or family commitments are involved. It has never been easier to start a business in today’s digitally connected world. Research shows that the fastest way to achieve financial freedom and fulfill one’s growth and contribution is to start a business. The main purpose of this book is to introduce you to the concept of business administration, so you can start your business properly. The book covers the basic principles of business success: authentic leadership; effective communication; managing money, people and resources; acquiring skills and tools in operations, finance, and marketing; and understanding the business environment, economics, and the entrepreneurial process.
