How pcergo started their other graphic design journey

Summary

Have you ever gotten Screwed in Business? Got your money taken by a partner, client, spouse, family member, employee or tenant? Had to go through litigation and deal with lawsuits? Well I want this cover to convey the feelings you have and if you had to vent with some kindred souls who also got screwed. This is a chronicling of how I got screwed in business (theft by business partner, lost money, etc.) and the lessons I learned as a result. Though these are frustrating things it makes great conversation so I want it to not get people depressed or down but to give them a heads up on what to watch out for.

Company name

ScrewedinBusiness.com

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

Want a colorful and attractive book cover design that conveys the emotion you feel when you get screwed in business, lose money, are betrayed by a partner or fail in business.  I am sharing some wisdom and lessons learned in this first book in the series.  Want people to grab it and even if they flip through the book they will see somthing they relate to.  I am an entrepreneur who has been through the school of hard knocks and kept a journal of all the lessons learned along the way.
