(South Africa)


Helping you start and build your small business empire

Business books

Here you can find a selection of business books that are useful for a small business owner in South Africa. We try to stay away from books targeted at senior management of large corporates or with foreign (normally US or UK) structural advice. This we believe adds more value to your time spent reading and gathering information to ensure the success of your small business.

Book of the month review


Business Plans for Dummies

We have departed from our normal policy this month as we are recommending a UK based book. However the Dummies range of books are just so well written for the novice that we feel its worth it. In any case business plans are fairly universal and many business start ups may be looking for capital from overseas investors. The general content of the book is sound and you will just need to be aware of some minor instances where they mention UK specific criteria that are not applicable to South Africa. If you don’t know where to start or how to write a business plan, then this is the book for you.
