Mark Stoner book description-
Problem: most Americans don’t realize the potential goldmine in
blue-collar business. By “blue-collar business” I mean a business providing
a specialized service requiring a trained employee and manual labor. In
my case it is chimney sweeping, but it can range from construction to
gardening to plumbing and junk removal. When people hear “business,”
they usually think of designer suits, high-rise office buildings, and
meetings upon meetings. Many people who want to start a new business
probably wouldn’t consider blue-collar work as an option and are missing out as a result.
By reading this book you’ll learn how to:
1. Think bigger—allow yourself to build the business that
you’ve always wanted.
2. Be a leader—learn to lead people to build a large service
3. Get out of your own way—the majority of businesses I
consult with have a leader who is stopping the flow of growth.
