    قرأت العديد من الكتب في نفس المجال بحكم اني احب هذي النوعية من الكتب و على إطلاع بكتب المشاريع و التنمية . يمكنني الجزم بأن هذا الكتاب من أقوى ما قرأت . و للأمور الآتية فكرة ان تفتح مشروع و خصوصا في الوقت الحاضر هو بمثابة الحلم لكل شخص منا . و خصوصاً مع تردي الأحوال الإقتصادية بشكل عام في معظم البلدان أصبح الجميع يفكر في بدء مشروعه الخاص للتخلص من روتين العمل الممل الرؤساء .. الخ , لكن الأصعب في هذا كله هو اختيار المشروع الصحيح و المناسب لك و ثانياً ان تجد من يدلك على كيفية بدء و ادارة المشروع . قرأت العديد من الكتب في نفس المجال بحكم اني احب هذي النوعية من الكتب و على إطلاع بكتب المشاريع و التنمية . يمكنني الجزم بأن هذا الكتاب من أقوى ما قرأت . و للأمور الآتية فكرة ان تفتح مشروع و خصوصا في الوقت الحاضر هو بمثابة الحلم لكل شخص منا . و خصوصاً مع تردي الأحوال الإقتصادية بشكل عام في معظم البلدان أصبح الجميع يفكر في بدء مشروعه الخاص للتخلص من روتين العمل الممل الرؤساء .. الخ , لكن الأصعب في هذا كله هو اختيار المشروع الصحيح و المناسب لك و ثانياً ان تجد من يدلك على كيفية بدء و ادارة المشروع . للأسف معظم من يختبئ تحت عبائة ريادة الأعمال متوهماً بأن انشاء تطبيق ذكي على الهواتف أو افتتاح موقع انترنت لبيع منتجات الكترونية هي الطريقة الوحيدة للبدء في مشروع قليل التكاليف ,او من دون تكلفة هي الطريقة الصحيحة لبدء مشروع ناجح ,للأسف الشديد تمتلئ مواقعنا العربية و قنوات اليوتيوب بهذه الإشاعات و الأكاذيب الخالية من الصحة بشكل كامل , الأمر الذي حول المراهقين في منازلهم يسعون جاهدين خلف صندوق الذهب و الأرباح المباشرة من اليوتيوب و مواقع التواصل الإجتماعي سعياً خلف الربح السريع و كأن افتتاح مدونة مجانية أو موقع تجارة الكترونية أو حتى قناة يوتيوب جديدة , يكشف الغطاء عن مغارة علي بابة المليئة بالكنوز الدفينة . و هذا خطأ جسيم يوضح الكاتب اسبابة بالتفصيل الممل . ان افتتاح المشاريع من وجهة نظر الكاتب و أراها صحيحة 100% لا تعتمد على التفكير في شيء خارق و بطولي و لم يتطرق اليه احد من قبل و هذا خطأ يقع فيه العديد و خصوصاً الذين يفكرون بالبدء بمشروع يعتمد بشكل كلي على تقديم خدمة فريدة و مميزة .. و في النهاية لا يستطيع اكمال فكرته او حتى تحويلها الى مشروع و ربما تبقى فكرة حبيسة مخيلته او الورق . في الكتاب يذكر ريتشل العديد من الخطوات بدءا من اختيار المشروع الصحيح , التسويق , التمويل , المحاسبة , احتساب التكاليف بشكل دقيق و ثم اثبات حضورك على شبكة الإنترنت و مواقع التواصل الإجتماعي . ما اعجبني في الكتاب و شدني لقراءته بسرعة انه بين كل فقرة يضع لنا قصة أو قصتين تبين لنا السبب الذي جعل منه يغير بعض من افكارك حول مشروع معين . من بين القصص التي ذكرها انه كان في احدى المرات يتجول اسفل منزله حيث اعلن عن افتتاح احدى المطاعم الجميلة و التي تعطي طابعا فريدا و جلسة جميله هادئة مع اضاءة هادة و يقوم صاحب المطعم بإستبدال الإضاءة في الليل ليحولها على ضوء الشموع مما يضيف على المكان رومنسية مطلقة و في كل مرة يقوم صديقنا ريتشل بالوقوف على نافذة المطعم و يعد نفسه بالدخول في المرة القادمة لأنه يعتقد انه قد لايمتلك المال الكافي لشراء وجبة طعام و اعتاد ان يشتري من مكان اخر . و في النهاية عندما قرر الدخول الى المطعم تفاجئ بأنه اغلق و اعلن افلاسه ! كانت صدمة بالنسبة لريتشل وقتها لأنه لم يجرب المطعم لكن الخسارة الأكبر كانت من نصيب صاحب الإستثمار . في قصة اخرى حول البدء بفكرة جديدة , قام ريتشل بذكر احدى صديقاته و التي عملت على تطوير الفشار (Popcorn ) و خلطه مع المكونات و الأعشاب الطبيعية و بعض البهارات الإيطالية , حتى خرجت بمزيج جديد على سكان ضواحي شمال لندن , حيث اعتادوا على اكل الفشار كوجبة ترفيهية و ليست أساسية الأمر الذي اخذ من وقتها جهدا لتقنع الأطفال و الأمهات بأهمية الفشار خصوصاً مع تركيبتها السحرية . بعد مضي 3 سنوات من العمل الشاق اصبحت ردود الشارع تطالب بالفشار اللذيذ الأمر الذي لفت انتباه كبار المستثمرين الى الإلتفات الى هذا المجال الجديد و المرغوب بقوة و الدخول فيه و ترويجه على نحو اوسع بسبب العلاقات العامة مما ادى الى خسارة المشروع بشكل كامل و فتح مجال قوي و مربح لأصحاب النفوذ و المستثمرين الكبار . من سلبيات الكتاب التي وجدتها ان كل ما يتعلق به موجه بشكل كبير الى المملكة المتحدة من المواقع الى الشركات و شركات الشحن البريطانية و البنوك .. الخ , كنت افضل ان يقوم الكاتب على جعل الكتاب دولياً أو عاماً بشكل اكبر لو ذكر بدائل للشركات البريطانية على بديل عالمي او دولي من وجهة نظري انصحكم بقراءة الكتاب اذا كنت بصدد انشاء مشروع او تريد البدء او تفكر بذلك قم بقراءة هذا الكتاب ستجد جميع اجاباتك بشكل واضح و جميل و مع قصص واقعية و تجارب اشخاص اخرين . عن نفسي قرأت عدة كتب عربية عن ادارة المشاريع الصغيرة , كيف تبدأ مشروعك في ستة اسابيع , الكامل في ادارة المشاريع و كلها للأسف اقل من المستوى المطلوب

    I'd like to give this book seven stars. I recommend it for every aspiring entrepreneur. It answers all of your questions, from the easy ones to the most complicated, and sometimes obvious but maybe forgotten aspects to starting a business, and I guess not everybody knows everything so basically the author left nothing out. It feels good to learn knew things. The book is written in an easy to follow, understandable and right to the point style.

It answers all of your questions, from the easy ones to the most complicated, and sometimes obvious but maybe forgotten aspects to starting a business, and I guess not everybody knows everything so basically the author left nothing out. It feels good to learn knew things. The book is written in an easy to follow, understandable and right to the point style. The good thing about it is that it talked about real life examples of startup businesses and the author's own small business. It is not just vague concepts of what should be done but real situations in the lives of people and how they achieved success, the difficulties they faced and obstacles they had to deal with and how they managed to reach their goals. The author provided so many interesting Links to help you start a business, but unfortunately they are all UK based, so non are useful here where I live. I want to end my review with this quote form the book: (You can't simply put your life on hold in the hope that external factors beyond your control will improve. Because they might not get better any time soon, and by then you will be that much older, and that much more fearful of doing something bold.) ~ Rachel Bridge. It is quite true, never put your life or dreams on hold, in the hope that other things get better first, start now, make the first step today, because if you don't, without realizing, the years will pass by, and you'll get older and maybe lose the spark and energy to do anything at all, and your potentially amazing life (in an alternate version of reality) will never be achieved because you didn't move early from your comfortable seat.

    It had some really good ideas and explained a few points pretty good. The problem with the book is that half of the things it says are more easily applicable in already developed countries. It would be tougher to implement those things in the less organised and poorer countries. But the basic principles stay the same. So I think it will still be helpful for everyone. Albeit not to the same extent.

    While the concepts are international the entire book seems to be about purely UK. Great read nonetheless as it provides such a holistic view to covering maximum factors. Still extremely relevant for new SMEs

    Sound advice. Not exactly "no money" but certainly good tips on not being foolish with startup expenses. Show the process of thinking things through properly.

    Certainly not the best book I’ve read in this genre and it’s focus on the UK for examples really lost anything significant I could take from this.

    When it comes to reading business books, I like things set out simply, something that comes with a story, something that eases you in rather than scares you off with all the jargon and the stats.

Does exactly that, the author breaking each stage of entrepreneurship into relevant chapters, with great anecdotes, whilst talking about her own small business set up, Entrepeneur Things. Rachel is a great author, her writing and style is breezy but informative and it made me want to head straight over to her website and support her venture too. As a relatively new small-business owner, I really enjoyed this book, felt inspired and found new bits and pieces that I'm sure will come in useful when I'm developing My own ideas.

    I always like a book that teaches me something. Even if it's just one new thing. This book taught me a few new things and also how to think a little differently as well. It's great when an Author has a different perspective on things and Rachel was not afraid to tell it as it is for her and yeah, she may have taken a bit of flak over the years for her ideas or beliefs but thank goodness she didn't give up. Great book for those just starting out or thinking about starting out. Thanks for a good i I always like a book that teaches me something. Even if it's just one new thing.

    Semi interesting - semi patronising. It was very interesting to hear about how some businesses which I'd heard of got going, but I didn't think Rachel's entrepreneur things business idea sounded all that promising.

    The most interesting idea I found was that you can look at things that are under-used and start a business with them

    Well, yeah - it takes you where it says it will. Just about. Except not really. The only point I picked up on cost me £16.51 (three years for the dot co dot UK domain to match the dot com I already have). It'll do others a power if good to read this book, though.
