A Basic Guide to Key Business Terms
It is unlikely that anyone can operate a business today, whether it is internet-based, a retail store, or any other type of company without some knowledge of copyrights, patents, trademarks, business practices and the other 59 concepts discussed in this book. While these aren't the only terms you will need to be successful, they are extraordinarily useful, and wide-ranging. No matter what phase your business is in, you'll find this an invaluable fast resource.
While you'll find easy access to legal business terms within it, this guide is not meant to be a substitute for legal advice—but it is a quick reference of 59 terms that other entrepreneurs have found vitally important, and can serve as your own personal business consultant. If you periodically scan through the 59 Key Business Terms, you will be pleasantly surprised by the fresh ideas that come from considering the concepts, the definitions, and the language expressed in this book.
