"We have created this volume primarily because everybody needs reliable information for their business, especially during turbulent conditions. We have ourselves started companies and helped develop many other businesses, so we know that this information is often scattered, it must be obtained from multiple sources and it takes away time. For our partners, we have always compressed this complexity, offering them simple solutions for their businesses. Throughout our collaborations, many of the local and foreign business people which have built businesses in Romania have repeated to us that without our help and guidance they would not have succeeded - and have encouraged us to put all our knowledge into a book. We have always told them, smiling, that a book would not be enough. And they always replied, smiling, that they could hardly wait to read all of them. Well, this is the first one."


"Skipping the legalese, straight to the point, every question that comes to mind is answered. Excellent material!"
