"The Women's Small Business Start-Up Kit, written by the author of the bestselling The Small Business Start-Up Kit, gives you the practical and legal information you need to kickstart a successful enterprise--whether you're an arty creative type, an independent consultant or a Fortune 500-seeker. In addition to a breakdown of the common issues and concerns facing women entrepreneurs of every strip, you'll find information and guidance on: choosing and developing the right business to live the life you want; drafting an effective business plan; programs that give government contracting preferences to women-owned businesses; understanding and choosing a legal structure; clearing the bureaucratic start-up hurdles; taking your business online and developing an eBusiness; financial management and tax basics for small businesses; balancing work, children, and family relationships; hiring and managing employees. The Women's Small Business Start-Up Kit retains its focus on women's business-related issues without devolving into stereotypes and never loses sight of the legal rules and fundamentals of starting and running your business."--
