Book & CD-ROM.

Herb businesses operating on the Internet alone have increased by more than 1000 percent since 2002 according to PEW Internet Research and that means a whole lot of people have tried their hand in this market. That means you need the kind of head start that only something like this book can offer -- a full review of the various intricacies of the herb business and what new customers and old customers alike are looking for that you need to be able to provide. You will learn everything you need to know before you start your business, first and foremost being the basics and details of the different herbs that you will be using and how they grow, what they do, and what they need. After learning the basics of herbs, you will learn how to structure your business, what you will need to operate an herb business and what is involved in the inner operations of that business as described by other businesses and herb experts. While providing detailed instruction and examples, the author leads you through every detail that will bring success. The world of herb businesses is booming, but there are still only a handful of experts and success stories, and for this book they have been contacted and their expertise added to the pages within to help you understand what works and what doesn't.
