Riverdale, Iowa (PRWEB) December 14, 2011
In today’s economic climate, it can be difficult to create a successful new business. In his new book Where Angels Fear to Tread: One man's journey in starting his small business (published by WestBow Press) author and entrepreneur George H. Seaberg offers keen insights based on his personal experience building his own company during a similar recession in the 1970s.
Where Angels Fear to Tread explains how Seaberg’s small manufacturing business of less than 150 persons succeeded in the highly-competitive world market. It is based on the notes and diary Seaberg kept as he ventures through the startup and growth of his company. Also included are writings from prominent authorities in the business world.
An excerpt from the book:
A small company fits the description of being fragile, while at the same time being very strong. This dichotomy usually comes from not having very much financially but also having a very strong commitment and a will to succeed in spite of difficult circumstances. When there is nowhere else to go, you just have to dig in and tough it out. I have only read of a small number of companies that ever had a smooth, troublefree beginning.
Seaberg’s book shows readers how to start and operate a business through a people-oriented approach, rather than a systems (formulas and figures) approach. “I want readers to have a ‘Can Do’ positive attitude to follow their dreams of owning a business.”
