Dramatic Business Growth!* *…In the Face of Fierce Competition!

Most businesses fail! Large or small, old or new, most businesses eventually succumb, despite their owners' feverish and impassioned efforts. The small number that survives never grow to their full potential. Their owners do everything they think they're supposed to and work practically 24/7 to do it. Yet, their efforts no longer produce improved results. Most owners are technical experts in their field, but have never been to 'business ownership school'. So, they run their businesses just like everyone else in their industry does... and get the same crummy results everyone else gets!
  Do you know…
  • The 4 primary ways to grow your business? (If not, then you`re not using them!)
  • Whether you`re functioning as the master technician or the CEO of your business? (You`re probably fooling yourself here!)
  • That you`re playing by the competition`s rules? (Don`t think so? You`re in trouble!)
  • How to deal with the `nice` customers that are killing your business? (`They seemed so nice. I wonder where they went?`)
  • What your business`s unique competitive advantage is? (If not, why buy from you?)
  • The key to customers lining up outside your door, while other business owners in your market are handing their door keys to the bank?
Dramatic Business Growth shows you the practical, concrete steps to:
  • add the greatest number of dollars to your business's bottom line…
  • in the shortest amount of time…
  • for the smallest amount of human effort…
  • and the least amount of capital investment and risk possible, whether your patrons are patients, clients, or customers, and regardless of your industry. Packed with example letters, tables, and scripts.

The Knack

You'll recognize Norm Brodsky from his hugely popular "Street Smarts" monthly column in Inc. Magazine.

In our opinion, The Knack should be required reading for anyone starting out or at mid-career in business ownership. While not a 'how to' manual, it's packed full of Norm's hard-earned wisdom in small business ownership. Written in a popular, easy to read style, this book summarizes the advice that he has given entrepreneurs based on his 30 years of small business ownership experience.

It's a great read and regardless of your level of experience you'll learn something from it.

The Battle Scarred Guide to
Small Business Debt Relief and Recovery

We frequently see the results of poor business debt management practices in my practice, and if we had our way, this book would be required reading by every business owner before they ever opened their doors. We're pleased to recommend this book for those facing growth crippling business debt. Your business MUST SURVIVE in order to continue paying your salary, keep your business operating, and avoid loosing everything you own. Whether your financial situation requires you to quickly negotiate legal settlements, renegotiate loan terms, or simply raise immediate cash, this book will show you how to do it in clear, no-nonsense, readily understood ways that are so urgently needed in times of great stress.

The E-Myth Revisited

This is Gerber's second major book, where he revisits his original assumptions and expands on his original work. He walks you through the steps in the life of a business from entrepreneurial infancy, through adolescent growing pains, to the mature entrepreneurial perspective. He then shows how to apply the lessons of franchising to any business-whether or not it is a franchise. Finally, Gerber draws the vital, often overlooked distinction between working on your business and working in your business.

The E-Myth

This is Gerber's original book that first delivered straight talk about the entrepreneurial myths. Everyone that starts a business is a technician who suffers from an entrepreneurship seizure. Small businesses do not work the way intended because the technician only works in the business and can not also have the foresight to work on the business at the same time. An invaluable text for understanding what you're doing wrong.
