Why Just Survive When You Can Thrive?
If you’ve ever felt like you are on an island, with no real connection to others that might understand what it means to be a small business owner, you are not alone. This book is for you.
This guide is for the millions of small business owners that wake up each day feeling like their business owns them. They often struggle to scale, struggle to reap the full financial rewards of their hard work, struggle to keep good people and often struggle to just find some free time to enjoy their personal lives and families outside of work.
The insights on the pages inside come out of my personal journey as an entrepreneur and from my experiences coaching hundreds of small business owners at the University at Buffalo School of Management’s Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership (CEL).
Unlike almost every other business book on the market we’ll do much more than "talk business" in our time together. Yes, the secret to unstoppable business success begins with business “best practices”, but that is just the foundation. You will only thrive when you recognize the need to conquer your fears, manage risk and fully embrace what we refer to at CEL as "the heart of the entrepreneur".
This book will lead you on a journey that will challenge you to conquer hidden fears, identify and focus on your unique strengths, create a simple and actionable strategic vision for the future and help you to identify and mitigate risk.
Finally, and perhaps most important, you’ll learn how to finally let go as you begin to assemble reliable teams that you can lead forward, enabling you to finally achieve the personal and financial freedom you seek and deserve as a small business owner.
