Those of us who have known Bob since Columbia College days respect his enormous command of entrepreneurism, taking ideas and hope to fruition and success. Bob uniquely covers all bases, keeps it simple and on target, and always focuses on the goal – taking entrepreneurial ideas successfully  across the finish line. I highly recommend Bootstrapping 101 to you.”

Bootstrapping 101 is about as “nuts and bolts” as you can get. Hard hitting. . .easy to read. . .no fluff. Bob Reiss has given us a reference manual on how to get things done, quickly and with limited resources. Interwoven throughout the “how to” tips are nuggets of wisdom on business conduct that should be emblazoned on everyone’s forehead. Keep this one handy. . .it should be the most dog-eared book in your business collection.”
