    I really like the premise of Lynne Beverly Strang's "Late-Blooming Entrepreneurs: Eight Principles for Starting a Business After Age 40". Too many people seem to believe it is too late for them to give it a shot at starting a business even though many people (including the founder of KFC) launch quite successful businesses at older ages. Ms. Strang, in this book, gives a lot of useful, easy to understand tips to those seeking to start businesses and I highly recommend this book to those individu I really like the premise of Lynne Beverly Strang's "Late-Blooming Entrepreneurs: Eight Principles for Starting a Business After Age 40".

    “Late-Blooming Entrepreneurs: 8 Principles for Starting a Business After Age 40” by Lynne Beverly Strang is a good book for anyone wanting to start a business, especially those over the age of forty.

It isn't really a guide book with step-by-step instructions, but rather a motivating book that addresses many things that the would-be-entrepreneur needs to think about, with a healthy dose of practical advice to help entrepreneurs avoid some of the common pitfalls along the way of starting a business. Throughout the book, Strang illustrates the points in the book with real-life examples of people who have started businesses. These examples are both motivating and educational. But they tend to lean toward motivational a bit more. After all, if they can do it, so can you. So can anyone with the right drive. Important considerations such as your family, doing a SWOT analysis, networking, resources, staying on the tiger, and finances among others are covered. Again, it isn't so much exactly what you need to do, but rather what you must think about and consider. At the end of each chapter there are action steps you can take to ensure you are making the most of the information in this book and considering the important aspects to starting a business. Many people are starting their own businesses, and many are older than forty. There are some different considerations when older, and Strang does a very good job of addressing them and laying out eight principles used by 40-and-older entrepreneurs to launch and build profitable companies. To anyone a little older and wanting to start a business, I'd recommend finding a mentor and collecting a number of resources. This book is a good one to include in those resources. Read it and not only be motivated that you can start a business when you are older, but heed the advice so your business is a success.

Anothe Late-Blooming Entrepreneurs by Lynne Beverly Strang is the perfect book for you if you are 40+ and thinking about or have already started a business. Entrepreneurship at any age can seem daunting, but through the stories of those we meet in this book, we get straight-forward, realistic advice. There is certain to be many entrepreneurs you can relate to. By the end of the book, you will have experienced their highs and lows right along with them and you’ll feel you have several new friends. Another bonus about this book is the 8 principles needed for effective entrepreneurship. The author doesn’t only share the stories of several late-blooming entrepreneurs, she applies their stories to 8 critical points necessary for successful entrepreneurship. Each chapter explains these points in detail, ties them in with the entrepreneurs’ experiences and concludes with a ’10 Ways to take Action’ checklist. As a solopreneur, I found it helpful in providing the encouragement I needed throughout the stages and growth of my writing business. In short, this is the book for any entrepreneur (regardless of age) to keep on hand and refer to for wisdom, encouragement, and action-plans.
