  • "25 Steps to Found and Scale a High-Growth Business The Startup Checklist is the entrepreneur's essential companion.

You'll learn the ins and outs of startup execution, management, legal issues, and practical processes throughout the launch and growth phases, and how to avoid the critical missteps that threaten the foundation of your business. Instead of simply referring you to experts, this discussion shows you exactly which experts you need, what exactly you need them to do, and which tools you will use to support them & mdash;and you'll gain enough insight to ask smart questions that help you get your money's worth. If you're ready to do big things, this book has you covered from the first business card to the eventual exit.

This book helps you sidestep the messy and expensive clean up process by giving you the specific actions you need to take right from the very beginning.

The Startup Checklist helps you avoid these problems and lay a strong foundation, so you can focus on building your business"--
  • "Most books on entrepreneurship focus on strategic issues like product/market fit, deciding what market to be in, or what business to buy, how to get traction with customers, etc. Examples include bestselling perennials such as The Lean Startup, Art of the Start, Zero to One, Startup Owner's Manual, et al Simple Startup, covers a completely different part of the process: the concrete details of business launch, growth, and management. Most best-sellers that promise to tell people how to start a business do so very briefly, and quickly end up recommending that readers seek guidance from lawyers, accountants, and other paid advisors. Simple Startup gives readers the detailed insights they need to understand exactly what they need from each of these professional counselors, to ask the smart questions that will help them get their money's worth, and to make intelligent decisions independent of their advisors' recommendations. Simple Startup is aimed at those who want to make it really big, not just the home-based artisans, daycare providers, or dry cleaning stores. These are innovators and visionaries who have the passion, drive, and creativity to launch a great company, but who need a nuts-and-bolts guide to the hundreds of complex challenges that derail many a business on the journey from their first business card to a successful company sale or IPO"--
