Description:

With The Big Idea, Donny Deutsch has written the must-have guidebook for aspiring entrepreneurs everywhere. Illustrated by inspirational stories from the regular people who have achieved their dreams (and appeared on Donny's hit CNBC show) after starting with little more than a brainstorm, The Big Idea draws the map to take you from wherever you are now-looking for some extra income, in a job you don't love, or just ready for a change-to where you've always wanted to go: in charge of your own fate.
