From The Author:
I wanted to write about how to start a Hotshot business but I wanted to describe the dangers, pitfalls and huge investments as well. Are you the right kind of person for this business? Is this business for you? I wrote this book from the viewpoint of someone who has started their business from scratch, with their own investment, and the struggle and the glory of growing it to a profitable business. – David DC Campos
