Book Review: Creative, Inc.

Creative, Inc Meg Mateo Joy Deangdeelert

My library is quiet large and currently overwhelmed with books that are sitting on the shelf for far to long without me reading them. Creative, Inc. happens to be one of those books. I ordered it at some point before my birthday last year, and now I’m finally getting around to reading it. This book is not just for the freelancer–it has great tips and tricks in here for the small business owner and entrepreneur in other fields.

Creative, Inc provides interviews with various creatives around the country. Some are solopreneurs like myself and others are part of amazing partnerships that were formed in college. If you are looking for a book that gives you great insight on how a creative thinks when doing graphics, illustrations, or website design project–this book is it. Furthermore, the book mentioned something I learned in The $100 Startup price for profit. One of the companies in the book said that they realized they needed to charge more when their plumber was charging them more an hour than they were charging any of  their own clients.

In addition, the book covers topics such as business names, finding an agent, legal structure, taxes, cold calling potential clients, and office space–all information that every business owner and entrepreneur should have on their radar. I highly suggest this book to my fellow peers looking to start their own business. I personally plan on buying Craft, Inc. 
and Blog, Inc. also.

    I have to applaud you. I have spent nearly an hour today reading over your posts and you are definitely handing out the business in a great way. While I have heard of Creative, Inc, I’m not sure how Mom Inc, and Blog Inc skipped my radar. I am heading to order these now.

    You are such an encouragement. This information is priceless to those looking to start a business and are not sure where to start. I am loving it. Can’t wait to see you in a few weeks!

      Thank you so much Mimi for the kind words. I have heard great things about Mom Inc and Blog Inc. I will be starting blog inc in a couple weeks since I have a reading list for this year. My goal with the blog is to help others since it was so hard when I started. Now there are so many resources for people. I just want to share my perspective =)

  • I need to get this book!!

      I shall bring with me when I see you in Austin.

  • Thanks for sharing this book, because I think it can not only benefit people looking to start their own business, but people looking to market themselves as well.

    Your blog is really incredible. The fact that you have such an analytical and reflective outlook on your business processes is really inspiring – and it’s so insightful for me to get to see the guts of a startup.

    I completely agree with Mimi below – you’re an inspiration and a motivating force to those of us looking to grow
