It includes topics such as utilizing social media to gain free advertising and new customers, living your life on your terms while starting a business, and the importance of creating unrealistic goals. Start Your Business on a Ramen Noodle Budget provides a practical yet excitingly different, no-nonsense way to launch a business.

"Start Your Business on a Ramen Noodle Budget is an MBA in a book for $19.95. Or you can go to Harvard and pay $250,000." says Diane Freaney, Founder and Creative Director of Rooted Investing, LLC.

“Start Your Business on a Roman Noodle Budget has to be one of 2016’s most creative and empowering business reference tools for Millennials. Budding entrepreneurs, start-up founders, and Millennials can rejoice now, unbinding their fear of not having capital to start a business. This witty and hip work gives Millennials strategies on how to take advantage of starting a business in a recession economy and how to avoid old-school theory-driven business pastimes to harness today’s technology to take the leap of faith into entrepreneurship.” notes James Taylor, President and Strategic Visionary of Taylored Athletes Sports Management
