The text is enriched with real-life entrepreneur stories from both well-known business owners and small-town entrepreneurs, providing students with an in-depth understanding of the entrepreneurial experience.

One of the key strengths of this text is its relevance to the current business landscape. The authors have made a point to cover the most up-to-date information, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on entrepreneurs and small business owners. This edition includes examples of how entrepreneurs are responding to the pandemic, demonstrating how entrepreneurs can adapt to unexpected challenges.

The text includes classroom-tested cases based on actual small business challenges and opportunities. This provides students with practical insights into the complexities of entrepreneurship and helps them develop problem-solving skills.

Furthermore, the text provides students with a solid foundation in business planning, a critical skill for entrepreneurs and those who work with them to prepare business plans and secure financing for startups and business expansions.
