Randy W. Kirk’s When Friday Isn’t Payday: How to Plan Start Build and Manage Your Small Business, 3rd Edition is very complete in taking the entrepreneur from the beginning of developing a business through the many facets of entrepreneurship. In many ways, it presents a complete checklist of the areas an entrepreneur can encounter in setting up a business. Mr. Kirk illustrates his points with real life examples, often from his own experience, and effectively brings us into the real world of entrepreneurship. There is much excellent information contained in the book and it provides valuable knowledge to those interested in becoming or expanding their role as an entrepreneur.
The book covers a great deal of information and is for the most part successful in accomplishing its goal of educating the business person wanting to set up and manage his/her own business. Throughout the book, there is very practical information on business planning, marketing, and managing a startup business.
