For courses in Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management.

Written by award-winning experts, Steve Mariotti and Caroline Glackin, Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management presents complex economic, financial and business concepts in a manner easily understood by a variety of students.

Based on a proven curriculum from the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), it is organized to follow the life-cycle of an entrepreneurial venture–from concept through implementation to harvesting or replication. Filled with examples from a broad range of industries, it moves further into the entrepreneurial process–discussing the business plan and also the unique aspects of managing and growing entrepreneurial ventures and small businesses.

This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience—for you and your students. Here’s how:

Help Students Apply Knowledge from the Text to the Real World: Cases give students the opportunity to solve real-world challenges. Present Special Insights on Presenting and Writing a Business Plan: Go beyond formulating a business plan to include critical topics of management, marketing and operations. Guide Student’s Learning: A proven curriculum builds on the expertise of the authors and the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) to teach the nuts and bolts of how to start and operate an entrepreneurial small business.
Starting your own business is hard. But the biggest obstacles often have less to do with time and money, and more to do with fear and doubt.

In What If? and Why Not? serial entrepreneur and small business advocate Jen Groover—creator of the Butler Bag and creator and host of Launcher’s Café, an online community for entrepreneurs—shows you how to transform your fears into action by rethinking the negative questions that can lead to failure before you even get started.

Being an entrepreneur, Groover says, isn’t just about selling a product. It’s about personal growth—about taking your vision and bringing it to fruition, and about always pushing yourself to take that vision further. What gets in your way isn’t the money you don’t have, or what you don’t know about the industry you want to get into—it’s believing you can’t do it, that you don’t have the power or the resources you need to make your dream into a reality.

Groover walks you step by step through ten negative “What If?” questions—What if I don’t know what I’m doing? What if I don’t have the money? What if I fail?—and how to turn them around by asking yourself: What if I can learn? What if I don’t need much money? What if I succeed? She also asks “What Not?”: Why not find a mentor or take a class? Why not ask for investors? Why not try?

With dozens of personal stories from successful entrepreneurs in areas as diverse as dog walking and handbag-invention, plus practical advice for every step of your journey, What If? and Why Not? is the most complete guide available to help you you start the business of your dreams.
The SAGE Handbook of Family Business captures the conceptual map and state-of-the-art thinking on family business - an area experiencing rapid global growth in research and education since the last three decades.

By including critical reflections and presenting possible alternative perspectives and theories, this Handbook contributes to the framing of future research on family enterprises around the world. It is an invaluable resource for current and future scholars interested in understanding the unique dynamics of family enterprises under the rubric of entrepreneurship, strategic management, organization theory, accounting, marketing or other related areas.

In the spirit of Steve Jobs and Moneyball, Elon Musk is both an illuminating and authorized look at the extraordinary life of one of Silicon Valley’s most exciting, unpredictable, and ambitious entrepreneurs—a real-life Tony Stark—and a fascinating exploration of the renewal of American invention and its new “makers.”

Elon Musk spotlights the technology and vision of Elon Musk, the renowned entrepreneur and innovator behind SpaceX, Tesla, and SolarCity, who sold one of his Internet companies, PayPal, for $1.5 billion. Ashlee Vance captures the full spectacle and arc of the genius’s life and work, from his tumultuous upbringing in South Africa and flight to the United States to his dramatic technical innovations and entrepreneurial pursuits.

Vance uses Musk’s story to explore one of the pressing questions of our age: can the nation of inventors and creators who led the modern world for a century still compete in an age of fierce global competition? He argues that Musk—one of the most unusual and striking figures in American business history—is a contemporary, visionary amalgam of legendary inventors and industrialists including Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, and Steve Jobs. More than any other entrepreneur today, Musk has dedicated his energies and his own vast fortune to inventing a future that is as rich and far-reaching as the visionaries of the golden age of science-fiction fantasy.

Thorough and insightful, Elon Musk brings to life a technology industry that is rapidly and dramatically changing by examining the life of one of its most powerful and influential titans.
