My Books

I have had a long relationship writing and editing books and other content for Nolo, a Berkeley-based publisher of do-it-yourself legal books and software. I’ve published four books with Nolo, all focusing on small business and nonprofit start-up and management. I update each of my books every other year to keep the legal information current, so maintaining my books is a large part of my self-employed life.

The Women's Small Business Start-Up Kit won the 2015 Gold Award in the Benjamin Franklin Book Awards by the Independent Book Publishers Association.
Here's what women business leaders had to say:

“The Women’s Small Business Start-Up Kit is a must-read for any woman thinking about starting a business. As a Director of a Women’s Business Center for nearly 20 years, this is the first book I’ve read which provides a realistic road-map on how to make it happen. In spite of the remarkable accomplishments that self-employed women have made, let’s face it, women continue to be the primary nurturers who hold American families together, a fact which makes starting and growing a successful woman-owned business fraught with challenges and sweet with its rewards.”
—Agnes Noonan, Executive Director, Women’s Economic Self-Sufficiency Team (WESST)

“Don’t even think about starting a business without reading this book. Approachable, easy to understand and totally straightforward, Peri has done a service to all future entrepreneurs by giving solid advice to set you up for sustainable success.”
—Amy Swift Crosby, Founder, SMARTY, A Resource for Entrepreneurial Women

“This no-nonsense guide is an essential roadmap for any woman considering entrepreneurship. It’s packed with how-to information and real-life examples that will help save significant time and money in getting a venture started. Highly recommended.”
—Sara Gould, President and CEO of the Ms. Foundation
