Start It Up

The Complete Teen Business Guide to Turning Your Passions into Pay

In this informative book geared to young budding entrepreneurs, Ms. Rankin provides pivotal data for young adults to think about and use in order to make their new businesses successful. She provides sample business plans for them to look over and gives Internet resources for more reference and that further enhance her points. She lists step-by-step information on how to make a business official, while also supplying quizzes for them to take in order for them to learn their strengths and weaknesses. The author even provides stories from young successful entrepreneurs on how they started their business and made it the success that it is today. This book has a plethora of information for any young adult to use to their advantage.

This book is geared for the Age Levels of 12 and up and Grade Levels of 7 and up.

I loved that this book was geared toward young adults, but what I found as a bonus was that anyone who picked this book up, young or old, could benefit from reading it. It highlighted everything you needed to know and do in order to make a new business the success it should be right from the start. She even mentioned some pitfalls of how, if you don’t thoroughly do your research and follow the step-by-step suggestions, your business may be doomed before it even takes off the ground. If you are interested in starting up your own business, or you know of someone who is interested in making their dream business a reality, this is one book you should look into. I highly recommend it and I look forward to seeing what other books Ms. Rankin might already have available.
