Helping someone start a business, regardless of size or scope, is an honor. I am thrilled that over two million entrepreneurs have launched businesses using Successful Business Plan Secrets & Strategies, stated Rhonda Abrams. When I meet a student at one of the 1,000+ business schools that utilize the book, or receive a letter from someone who read the book in one of the 30-languages it is available in, I am humbled by its reach and breadth.
