Business for Breakfast, Volume 5: Business Planning for Professional Publishers
So. You’d like to take your publishing business to the next level, and want to create a business plan to help you get there.
But all of those stupid business books make no sense. They were not written for you.

If you hate spreadsheets, and have problems understanding business books, this one (and this series!) may be just what you need.
Be sure to read the other books in this series:

The Immortals’ War
Tong Yi lives in Taiwan and works as a messenger for Huli Transport—a company that specializes in delivering messages and packages for non-humans. He values his oath to the company and makes heroic efforts to ensure the messages entrusted to him arrive safely and on time.
However, between the awesome motorcycle he rides who insists of “dancing” with him by fishtailing and trying to dump him every chance she gets, and the brewing war between the non-humans, “…or die trying” seems more likely with every message he delivers.
And then his brother turns up as a combatant, and possibly his enemy…
If you enjoy Chinese myths and legends woven into a modern story, you’ll love “The Immortals’ War.”
The Fairy Boy-Band
Oswald just wants to enjoy the peace and quiet of his suburban home.

Still, desperate times call for desperate measures.
Particularly when dealing with a fairy boy-band.
