My new textbook titled Bootstrapping is now available for pre-orders.

Here is a blurb from the publisher:
With a focus on practical techniques, entrepreneurs learn how to stretch resources and thrive on lean budgets. The text focuses on bootstrapping techniques for a variety of ventures-from small, family-owned businesses to high-growth upstarts. While this book treats the subject of securing initial financing for the start-up venture, it also fully explores how entrepreneurs manage and sustain the business as it grows.
