design business

any good design business books out there on starting, running a design business? thanks

I don’t know about books on design businesses in particular, but “Start Your Own Business”, by Rieva Lesonsky is a pretty good primer for a first time entrepreneur.

On the design tip, a good book on patents is “Patent it Yourself”, by David Pressman.

For legal information is a good resource. They put out the book by Pressman, and have other books on business law and related topics.

Best of luck,

thanks chowmander…i also found this site while searching 4 books on this topic @ amazon
