Mini-Quiz: Starting a Publishing Business

by Ron Kurtus (5 August 2012)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Should you go to outside investors to start your business?

Yes, because you will need a lot of money to get started

It depends whether you want to publish books or e-books

No, because the amount needed is not that much

2. What type of business licenses do you need?

It depends on your state and local community requirements

Virtual licenses, since you sell online

You can avoid getting licenses until you are caught

3. What type of software is needed for publishing?

Any type of freeware is acceptable

It is good to use a page formatting application like Adobe InDesign

You need software capable of running your printing presses

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Self-Publishing. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
