Making dollars with your computer
As a recent PC convert (three years,) It's hard to imagine how I
lived the first 50 plus years without one. As a recently graduated
parent of 4 adults, two of whom " benefitted " from a private school
education, so convinced am I of the computers efficacy as a teaching
tool, that were I to do it over again, they would each have a PC by
age four, and might not see the inside of a classroom until they were
ready for university at 15.
The bywords of the nineties are almost always preceded by tele, as
in tele-commuting, tele-conferencing, etc. Like many of you I'm on the
lookout for " how to " books that will add to my knowledge in this
fast growing field, and this one looked like a winner.
There are writers who can take a dry technical subject, inject life
and make it an interesting read, unfortunately Scott Tilley isn't one
of them. He does however redeem himself by packing into these
pages an extremely detailed guide to a very new field.
He begins with 3 chapters to set the ground rules, and components
for a home-based computer business. The author then lists, in a 160
page chapter, every conceivable use for a personal computer in
business and supplies a framework for a business centered on each.
Under the categories of: Description; Clientele; Requirements; and
Marketing, he provides a thorough explanation of the business,
assuming only that we have the technical knowledge of the subject.
This is heavy going, but Mr. Tilley did his homework, we get the
benefit, and I think you will agree, it's worth the wade.
