| September/October 1977

Becoming a small business entrepreneur takes organization and perseverance.

Become a Small Business Entrepreneur

Yes, you can be your own boss . . . more easily than you may think. According to Bernard Kamoroff, a California CPA, "All it really requires is a good idea, some hard work, and a little knowledge."

And "a little knowledge" — actually a great deal of knowledge — is what Bernard's book, Small-Time Operator, is all about. Mr. Kamoroff has nine solid years of experience as a tax accountant and financial advisor for started-from-scratch businesses, and he's done an amazing and praiseworthy job of boiling those nine years down into a complete and very useful technical manual for the beginning small entrepreneur.

The passages that follow will give you a good idea of the kind of practical instructions you'll find in Small-Time Operator. As you'll see, there is a lot to striking out on your own . . . but the rewards of such a venture can be well worth all the difficulties.

Don't, then, let yourself be too easily discouraged! "Other people — many others — now run their own small businesses," Bernard Kamoroff points out, "and you can too."

Business Financing: How Much Do You Need?

How much money you need depends a lot on the type of business you're starting and the type of person you are. If you're willing to work hard, to make a few sacrifices, to live on beans for a while, you can start a successful business for little or no investment.
