Our Essential Business products
It's easy to start a business! But running one that will make money and thrive year after year is not quite so simple. And if you don't get it right, the effects can be painful.
All our books are researched, written, edited, designed and published by a small dedicated team of people who are passionate about producing great products (read more about us here).
We understand about business because we are all running our own businesses right now. (And have been for years!) That's what makes our books so different. Everyone involved in creating them is a small business owner.
There are currently two Essential Business products. These are:
- The Essential Business Guide — winner of the 2006 Plain English Award and winner of the Start Your Business magazine 'Business Book of the Year' award. Now in its 4th edition, our most recent Guide is our best yet. Not least because it is published in partnership with Cobweb Information who specialise in business information. Read more...
- Start Your Business Step by Step — our tried and tested workbook and worksheets (tested by 60 business advisers and startups across the UK before we allowed it to be published). Successfully used for the past 6 years by business owners and business support organisations. Most recent edition published in partnership with SFEDI Group. Read more...
Our aim is simple: to produce the kind of books that we wish had been around when we started out. Clearly written, easy to understand, no jargon, no time wasting. We know you're busy and we know there's a lot you need to take in, and quickly! We have a reputation for presenting complex information in a straightforward, no-nonsense way. That's why we were awarded the Plain English Award for our Essential Business Guide. (The first business book ever to win it! Read what the Plain English Campaign had to say about our Guide.)
