Grow better not bigger with proven low-tech, human-scale, biointensive farming methods

Les Jardins de la Grelinette is a micro-farm located in Eastern Quebec, just north of the American border. Growing on just 1.5 acres, owners Jean-Martin and Maude-Helene feed more than 200 families through their thriving CSA and seasonal market stands and supply their signature mesclun salad mix to dozens of local establishments. The secret of their success is the low-tech, high-yield production methods they've developed by focusing on growing better rather than growing bigger, making their operation more lucrative and viable in the process.

The Market Gardener is a compendium of La Grelinette's proven horticultural techniques and innovative growing methods. This complete guide is packed with practical information on:

Setting-up a micro-farm by designing biologically intensive cropping systems, all with negligible capital outlay; Farming without a tractor and minimizing fossil fuel inputs through the use of the best hand tools, appropriate machinery and minimum tillage practices; Growing mixed vegetables systematically with attention to weed and pest management, crop yields, harvest periods and pricing approaches.

Inspired by the French intensive tradition of maraichage and by iconic American vegetable grower Eliot Coleman, author and farmer Jean-Martin shows by example how to start a market garden and make it both very productive and profitable. Making a living wage farming without big capital outlay or acreages may be closer than you think.

Fully revised and expanded for the first time in a decade, this is Guy Kawasaki's classic, bestselling guide to launching and making your new product, service, or idea a success.

Whether you're an aspiring entrepreneur, small-business owner, intrapreneur, or not-for-profit leader, there's no shortage of advice on topics such as innovating, recruiting, fund raising, and branding. In fact, there are so many books, articles, websites, blogs, webinars, and conferences that many startups get paralyzed, or they focus on the wrong priorities and go broke before they succeed. 
The Art of the Start 2.0 solves that problem by distilling Guy Kawasaki's decades of experience as one of the most hardworking and irreverent strategists in the business world. Guy has totally overhauled this iconic, essential guide for anyone starting anything.  It’s 64 percent longer than version 1.0 and features his latest insights and practical advice about social media, crowdfunding, cloud computing, and many other topics.
 
Guy understands the seismic changes in business over the last decade: Once-invulnerable market leaders are struggling. Many of the basics of getting established have become easier, cheaper, and more democratic. Business plans are no longer necessary. Social media has replaced PR and advertising as the key method of promotion. Crowdfunding is now a viable alternative to investors. The cloud makes basic infrastructure affordable for almost any new venture.
 
The Art of the Start 2.0 will show you how to effectively deploy all these new tools.  And it will help you master the fundamental challenges that have not changed: building a strong team, creating an awesome product or service, and facing down your competition.
 
As Guy likes to say, “Entrepreneur is a state of mind, not a job title.” His book will help you make your crazy ideas stick, through an adventure that's more art than science – the art of the start.

There are few businesses as glamorous as owning a bar or club. You’ll be the proprietor of the establishment where people meet, greet, eat and drink. It’ll be a home away from home for some of your customers, and you’ll be the ruler of this social roost.

The profit potential for bars is incredible. By taking a $20 bottle of liquor, and selling it an ounce at a time for $1.50 and up, you can make as much as $192 per bottle. That’s a whopping 800 percent return on your investment!

Owning your own bar or club can mean long hours, meticulous attention to detail, giving up vacations and weekends, and sometimes dealing with unruly customers. But if you have a clear vision, do your homework, and learn the ins and outs of the business, it can also translate into a rewarding and financially successful enterprise. If you’re friendly, outgoing, like people and have good business sense, you’re already well on your way.

Our step-by-step guide will help you turn your dream into a moneymaking reality. We cover the several types of bars you can open–neighborhood bar, sports bar, brewpub, wine or martini bar, and nightclub–and how to get those bar stools filled with happy customers. The author explains step by step everything you need to know before opening your doors. Topics covered include how to:

•Research your target market
•Find the perfect location
•Hire a knowledgeable staff
•Navigate the red tape that accompanies serving alcohol and food
•Understand the logistics of inventory and equipping your bar
•Compete with other bars and nightlife venues
•Keep your clients entertained–and get them to make more purchases–once they’re in your bar
•And much more!

We share insider tips to increase your bottom line and make your venture a success. This easy-to-use guide also includes useful sample forms, cost-cutting ideas, common mistakes to avoid, and additional resources, plus step-by-step instructions, checklists, and work sheets that will guide you through every aspect of the start-up process. Order this book today and start living your dream.

Ronne knows your past does not determine your future—so are you ready to change your life?

The new world economy is tough on job security. Hordes of skilled, experienced, motivated workers are flooding the market, looking for work. And lots of merged and downsized companies now outsource the work that used to be done by permanent employees. The bright side? It’s prime time for the staffing profession.

 Each year Americans start one million new businesses, nearly 80 percent of which fail within the first five years. Under such pressure to stay alive—let alone grow—it’s easy for entrepreneurs to get caught up in a never-ending cycle of “sell it—do it, sell it—do it” that leaves them exhausted, frustrated, and unable to get ahead no matter how hard they try.

This is the exact situation Mike Michalowicz found himself in when he was trying to grow his first company. Although it was making steady money, there was never very much left over and he was chasing customers left and right, putting in twenty-eight-hour days, eight days a week. The punishing grind never let up. His company was alive but stunted, and he was barely breathing. That’s when he discovered an unlikely source of inspiration—pumpkin farmers.

After reading an article about a local farmer who had dedicated his life to growing giant pump­kins, Michalowicz realized the same process could apply to growing a business. He tested the Pumpkin Plan on his own company and transformed it into a remarkable, multimillion-dollar industry leader. First he did it for himself. Then for others. And now you. So what is the Pumpkin Plan?

Plant the right seeds: Don’t waste time doing a bunch of different things just to please your customers. Instead, identify the thing you do better than anyone else and focus all of your attention, money, and time on figuring out how to grow your company doing it. Weed out the losers: In a pumpkin patch small, rotten pumpkins stunt the growth of the robust, healthy ones. The same is true of customers. Figure out which customers add the most value and provide the best opportunities for sustained growth. Then ditch the worst of the worst. Nurture the winners: Once you figure out who your best customers are, blow their minds with care. Discover their unfulfilled needs, innovate to make their wishes come true, and overdeliver on every single promise.

Full of stories of other successful entrepreneurs, The Pumpkin Plan guides you through unconven­tional strategies to help you build a truly profitable blue-ribbon company that is the best in its field.

“I’ve set up my corporation. Now what do I do?”

All too often business owners and real estate investors are asking this question. They have formed their protective entity – be it a corporation, LLC or LP – and don’t know what to do next.

“Run Your Own Corporation” provides the solution to this very common dilemma. Breaking down the requirements chronologically (ie the first day, first quarter, first year) the book sets forth all the tax and corporate and legal matters new business owners must comply with. Written by Rich Dad’s Advisor Garrett Sutton, Esq., who also authored the companion edition “Start Your Own Corporation”, the book clearly identifies what must be done to properly maintain and operate your corporation entity.

From the first day, when employer identification numbers must be obtained in order to open up a bank account, to the fifth year when trademark renewals must be filed, and all the requirements in between, “Run Your Own Corporation” is a unique resource that all business owners and investors must have.

Rich Dad/Poor Dad author Robert Kiyosaki states, “Run Your Own Corporation is the missing link for most entrepreneurs. They’ve set up their entity, but don’t know the next steps. Garrett Sutton’s book provides valuable information needed at the crucial start up phase of operations. It is highly recommended reading.”
When “Start Your Own Corporation” is combined with “Run Your Own Corporation” readers have a two book set that offers the complete corporate picture.
Unlike old-school “design your own coupon book” titles, this book moves straight into computer technology and proceeds to the latest trend in couponing… apps, which provide deals to mobile users wherever they may be.
Of particular interest are the sections describing how to make a splash in the highly lucrative, but also competitive daily deal segment of the market, where Groupon and LivingSocial reign supreme.

Included within, readers will how to:
•Build an online network of followers which can translate into customers
•Attract merchants
•Join affiliate coupon or daily deal programs
•Find your niche market
•Create an aggregator site, in which you present the best of the best from daily deal or coupon websites.
•Market your coupon or daily deal site through the social media

Of particular interest is a chapter devoted to working closely with your merchants to provide coaching and guidance on how the daily deal industry works from their perspective. Many daily deal businesses do not work to enhance the experience for their merchants. Readers, however, can learn how to do so.

Experts in the industry are also included such as Marc Horne, co-creator of Daily Deal Builder, who discusses what it takes to build a daily deal site, David Teichner, CEO of Yowza!! who brought deal apps to iPhones and several business owners who have tried their luck at running daily deal. They discuss what they have learned from the process.

Currently there are few, if any, other books on how to start a daily deal business and the coupon books focus on how to use coupons and even on extreme couponing, but not on running an online coupon business. This is a unique title which provides those who enjoy offering deals and discounts to get started in an industry that is still growing.
