Before I started my business, I purchased a large stack of business books to read as a way of getting information on the process of running a business. What I wound up with was a lot of "rah-rah-you-can-do-it-live-your-dream" chatter and very little on the practical side, like accounting, employee relations and such. When my business got into trouble (mostly from my lack of experience) there was nothing on the shelves about how to call it quits, close the doors and minimize the financial hit. I was so upset, I took those "rah-rah" books and started a bonfire. I felt a little decieved, both by the authors, but also that I was so gullible to think the process was easy. Anyone else have a similar experience?
