Hovey Smith is a Business Consultant and Business Coach. His long association with major businesses in the outdoor field as a writer have given him a good overview of the industry. In the past he has done interviews, stories and videos about companies like Barnett Crossbows, Buck Knives and many others that have included close studies of their business models. A recent example is a visit to Buck Knives which resulted in several YouTube Videos, a half-hour on his radio show and posts on his blogs to enhance publicity about the company’s products. These may be accessed by visiting www.hoveysmith.com. “Create Your Own Job Security: Plan to Start Your Own Business at Midlife,” follows the publication of his booklet, “Ideas for New Businesses.” The 200-page book expands “Ideas,” and provides practical information on how to select a business that can provide income that you enjoy so much that you would do it for nothing.
