Entrepreneurs must have courage, optimism and an elevated sense of mission. Sharon Rowe demonstrated these qualities when she started her tiny business Eco-Bags Products. She had little money, not much time (she was a new mother) and no business expertise (she was an actor). Thanks to her hard work, daring and perseverance – not to mention low-interest credit cards – Eco-Bags Products is now a multimillion-dollar enterprise. With charm and grace, Rowe explains how this all came to be in her instructive, insightful and down-to-earth manual. She describes her business processes and mind-set in detail so other entrepreneurs can gain practical wisdom and inspiration from her experience. getAbstract recommends her compelling narrative to entrepreneurs, both actual and wannabe.

What Is a “Tiny Business”? 

Most people work to make a living, but many dislike their jobs. They’re unfulfilled and unhappy. If you’re in that rut, establishing a tiny business may be your road to a more satisfying life. Owners of tiny businesses bet on themselves. However, deciding to go into business for yourself can be daunting. It takes courage, creativity, patience, persistence, discipline, a good plan and a strong purpose. That sense of purpose is crucial for tiny business owners.  “Like a tiny house, a tiny business is built by keeping a laser focus on what you deem essential.”
