An entrepreneur since age 12, Sault Ste. Marie author and StartUP Sault founder, Nevin Buconjic has launched and operated eight businesses and helped hundreds of entrepreneurs and small business owners to start and grow their companies.
In 2014, Buconjic founded StartUP Sault (part of the Startup Canada network) to bring local entrepreneurs together and build a supportive startup community through regular meetups and events. Since then the volunteer organization has held over 50 events including boot camps, startup book club, pitch contests and most recently co-hosted the 2018 Regional Startup Canada Awards in June.
In 2017 Nevin was awarded the Startup Canada Entrepreneur Promotion Award for advancing the environment and culture of entrepreneurship in Canada. His first book, 25 Money-Making Businesses You Can Start in Your Spare Time, sold over 8,000 copies.
In his latest book, Buconjic shares real-world tips, advice and strategies for starting and growing a successful small business. This second edition has been fully updated and expanded since it was originally published as an eBook in 2013 and is offered as a paperback for the first time.
“What I have found working with new entrepreneurs, is they are often overwhelmed when getting started, and many times don’t follow through with their ideas, states Buconjic. “But the process of starting a business doesn’t have to be complex. In my book I layout the steps involved while providing advice along the way. I even share my story of how I started my latest venture in a week, for less than $250.”
The practical small business guide, entitled Starting Your Own Business: An Entrepreneur’s Guide to Starting and Growing a Small Business, is full of real-world tips, advice, and strategies for starting your own successful small business. Readers will learn about:
Each chapter provides links to other notable sources of information and resources available to entrepreneurs in Canada and the U.S., including government programs. A companion webpage indexes all of the links referenced in the paperback version, making it easy for readers to access additional resources quickly.
Buconjic launched the new book recently at the Northern Ontario Book Fair, held in Sault Ste. Marie August 10-12th. The book fair featured nine Northern Ontario authors who signed books and met readers. The book fair also stocked books from over 40 other Northern Ontario authors.
Both of Nevin’s books are now available as paperbacks and Kindle eBooks on Amazon.com and Amazon.ca. You can also learn more via his website at www.nevinbuconjic.com
