Welcome and thank you for your interest in Virtual Entrepreneurship: Creating and Operating a Home-based Online Business by Professor Lauri Smedley.

Have you ever thought about creating your own home-based online business? Do you have something about which you are passionate that you might be able to turn into a profit-making business? Do you have good soft skills and technical skills? If the answers to these questions is "yes," then virtual entrepreneurship might be a good fit for you.

The Virtual Entrepreneurship books are based on years of research on approximately 200 virtual entrepreneurs from around the world who operate a variety of retail and service businesses. Other professors add insights related to their areas of expertise in business law, accounting, general business, computer technology, software applications, Web page design, and marketing.

If you are already a home-based virtual entrepreneur, these books will provide the tools and additional resources you need to help you operate your business more efficiently. The books are also must-haves for anyone who is unemployed, underemployed, unemployable, and for people who are simply not fulfilled in their current jobs. Consider this, if you work at a job that is unfulfilling, you could begin operating a virtual entrepreneurship doing the things you love for at least part of the time.

Whether you are considering starting your own home-based virtual business full-time or part-time, you owe it to yourself to learn how to get started and to learn about the do's and don'ts of virtual entrepreneurship from practicing virtual entrepreneurs from around the world. The books include vignettes of actual virtual entrepreneurs and their businesses along with information gathered through research. You will also get to know selected virtual entrepreneurs who are featured at the beginning of each chapter in their own words. 

These books do not teach people how to get rich quickly. Rather, they are about real people who work hard online from the comfort of their homes or from wherever they choose to work. Wouldn't you like that kind of flexibility and fulfillment in your life? If so, you owe it to yourself and to your family to see if virtual entrepreneurship is right for you.

Millions of people around the world are working virtually and you can too!

Thank you,

Professor Smedley
