If you’re a business owner I’m sure you’ve read a ton of books from experts who promise they have the perfect answer to growing your business and improving your bottom line. I’ve literally lost track of all the times I’ve been inspired, only to realize that, no that advice really doesn’t apply to me, or it’s not practical in the first place.
Then I read Built to Sell: Creating a Business That Can Thrive Without You by John Warrillow and it literally changed my life. Now every business decision I make is balanced against my ultimate business goals and it’s completely revolutionized everything I do.
The book is incredibly simple, detailing the struggles of a fictional graphic design agency. There are no charts, bullet points or long lists of rules. This book tells a simple story that almost any business owner can relate to and then goes into detail about how to solve those issues.
If you want to learn how to build a business that runs without you, that you can easily sell in the future (if you want to), and one that doesn’t force you into a 60 hour work week, this book is for you.
Built To Sell is a VERY easy read and will only take you a couple of hours to read, and you will read it again and again.
