Be A Big Time, Big Deal Private Eye: and Make Money at It in Today's Business World by Russ Bubas
Very few jobs today offer the mystique, excitement, and fun of being a private eye. Once a fixture of old movies and cheap detective novels, today's private investigator is an important player in the modern business world, filling gaps where law-enforcement officers cannot or will not tread. And there's plenty of work to be had - if you know where to find it and, most importantly, how to get paid for it. Author Russ Bubas has spent 35 years in the business and now runs a successful corporate private investigation firm with more than 1,000 clients nationwide.
In Be a Big Time, Big Deal Private Eye, Bubas provides an entertaining introduction to private investigation as an adventurous, profitable and satisfying career. He describes the common (and not so common) slices of the modern PI business, including who uses these services and why, and he tells you how to price your work correctly so you can make a good living at it. Bubas uses fascinating stories from his long career to show you how PIs operate in the real world - whether it's staking out crooked employees in downtown bars, working undercover in major corporations or performing any number of other assignments that modern PIs are expected to do.
Finally, he shows you how to establish and run your own business like a professional, from setting up shop to landing your first clients to marketing your services the right way
