Any good businessperson knows they are always a student.

According to the Small Business Administration, there are 543,000 new businesses started every month, but only roughly 18 percent of them will ever succeed. Entrepreneurs need all the help they can get.

W. Gary Sitton, Ph.D. sold his first business when it was making $30 million per year and he is currently a professor emeritus at California State University in Chico. He brings his own expertise to his business classes, but realizes that no one person can be an expert on every facet of the entrepreneurial world.

Sitton invited 12 successful entrepreneurs to his class to create a lecture series based around each person’s expertise. Now he has turned these lectures into a new entrepreneurial guide, “Fire Up Your Startup and Keep it Up.”

“Any good businessperson knows they are always a student, so I thought this information could be useful for people already out in the world,” Sitton said. “More importantly I wanted to create a set of specific takeaways for people who may not have time or access to these types of lectures.”

“Fire Up Your Startup and Keep it Up” addresses the expected topics of marketing, sales, and CFO duties, but also dives into newer topics like outsourcing, social media, virtual companies and much more.

America was built on innovation in business and without a helping hand many entrepreneurs will be left in the dust despite their great ideas.
