Entrepreneurial women experience all of these and more while building a business and concurrently caring for loved ones. Buckle in and learn to ride with arms stretched high as you yell, "Woohoo" instead of gripping the safety bar in terror.

She shares with trademark honesty and vulnerability her entrepreneurial roller coaster ride and teaches: - How fear shows up and can derail your plans and progress; - The importance of understanding the driving force within you that will keep you going even when times are hard; - Why understanding your business values plays a crucial role in your long-term success; - That inner strength will be your saving grace when it seems everything has fallen apart; - The different communities you need around you in order to create success; - What leadership really is and what it isn't; - The critical role that mindset plays in everything you do; and - Why celebrating your successes isn't an act of the ego.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Do you worry that your business will collapse without your constant presence? Are you sacrificing your family, friendships, and freedom to keep your business alive? What if instead your business could run itself, freeing you to do what you love when you want, while it continues to grow and turn a profit? It’s possible. And it's easier than you think. If you're like most entrepreneurs, you started your business so you could be your own boss, make the money you deserve, and live life on your own terms. In reality, you're bogged down in the daily grind, constantly putting out fires, answering an endless stream of questions, and continually hunting for cash. Now, Mike Michalowicz, the author of Profit First and other small-business bestsellers, offers a straightforward step-by-step path out of this dilemma. In Clockwork, he draws on more than six years of research and real life examples to explain his simple approach to making your business ultra-efficient. Among other powerful strategies, you will discover how to: Make your employees act like owners: Free yourself from micromanaging by using a simple technique to empower your people to make smart decisions without you. Pinpoint your business's most important function: Unleash incredible efficiency by identifying and focusing everyone on the one function that is most crucial to your business. Know what to fix next: Most entrepreneurs try to fix every inefficiency at once and end up fixing nothing. Use the "weakest link in the chain" method to find the one fix that will add the most value now. Whether you have a staff of one, one hundred, or somewhere in between, whether you're a new entrepreneur or have been overworked and overstressed for years, Clockwork is your path to finally making your business work for you.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Meet Steve Adams, who at age 32 was a banking executive and flying high. Everyone was proud of him. And he was dying inside. Adams had long yearned for something else – a dream that you, too, may harbor in your heart. He had a passion waiting to blossom. He wanted to make it as an entrepreneur in his own business. He wanted to do something meaningful. “Win or lose,” he writes, “I knew my only real anguish would be regretting in twenty or thirty years why that young man never just took that chance.” Today, Adams operates successful Pet Supplies Plus stores across the country. His was a journey of severe challenges overcome, and in The Passionate Entrepreneur he shares his mistakes and heartaches and what he learned from them in his pursuit of success. He imparts the lessons about the systems and strategies essential to running a successful business. Among them: how to treat employees, appeal to customers, and establish your brand, all the while paying meticulous attention to the bottom line. Above all, however, an entrepreneur must understand the true bottom line – the meaning of success itself. Adams knows that business without passion is a mere exercise in numbers. Profit without purpose can drain the soul. He wanted to be an entrepreneur so that he could lead others to a better life – his family, his employees, his clients, and his community. An entrepreneur needs a mission and absolute clarity about what he or she wants to accomplish. The Passionate Entrepreneur is a book of encouragement for those who are ready to pursue their dreams and for those who fear, in their frustration, that they have forgotten them. Steve Adams gets to the heart of the matter, and he is waiting to speak to you. Foreword by Lee Milteer

Pages: 270
ISBN: 195140792X
Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

In 2012, the world was slowly recovering from the Great Recession while Facebook and other social media platforms disrupted global life and business, ushering in a new era of startup optimism. From his desk at a consulting firm in Stockholm, Sweden, Arnaud Henneville-Wedholm watched in disbelief, wondering, "How could such a waste of time become so popular?" Bursting with ideas of how to break out of business monotony, Henneville-Wedholm and his coworker were ready to start something of their own. Soon, a lightbulb went off: what if they created a social platform that challenged people to get off the couch and live better lives? And better yet, what if it took down Facebook? There was only one problem: neither of them knew the first thing about running a tech company. In How Hard Can It Be, Henneville-Wedholm traces, in a uniquely eclectic and cosmopolitan voice, the youthful enthusiasm that propelled the promising rise of his startup-along with its equally calamitous downfall. Along the way, he teaches readers startup lessons by example, such as: How to pitch startup incubators like Sting, Europe's version of Y-Combinator How uninformed optimism can still lead to real organic growth What to do when your business isn't as scalable as you thought The brand-building power of guerrilla marketing How to pivot (and then pivot again, and again) when user growth stalls For optimists and idealists everywhere, How Hard Can It Be is a jet-setting parable of the European startup scene that takes on the most elusive business topic of them all: failure. Puncturing the hollow platitudes of how-to guides, Henneville-Wedholm instead offers his real-world experience of trying to go from zero to one. As a result of his efforts, How Hard Can It Be teaches entrepreneurs that failure need not be feared. In the right light, it can be a blessing in disguise-and it can even be fun.
