    Small Business Rules

    This is both a very entertaining (with the cartoons) and rewarding (with the detailed information). I really enjoyed reading this book and learning new things that should be included to make a small business successful as well as being reminded of things that I already knew but are very important. Author Matthew Dickerson discusses the importance of having a proper attitude, getting out of one's comfort zone and using your own products as just a few of the many rules that one needs to follow to have a thriving business. I found each rule to be important and feel that new and existing business owners will find this a rewarding read. This book provides great insight to remind the business owner that they are ever competing for business and one can never become too relaxed. We should be careful what we say as most of the time someone will repeat that and it will cause of harm if it is of a negative form. This would be a great tool to use for a weekly business meeting. Each rule is short and to the point. It would be a great jump start to have positive communication among the leaders/employees as well as to cover so many of the necessary topics that a manager/leader would need to cover. Also, this would be a great investment for a small business leaders/young chamber leaders group to purchase and use to have a form of positive learning discussions at their meetings. I look forward to finding more resourceful material from this author and learning from his nuggets of wisdom. This book was provided by for my honest review. The material was great, but somehow the print was blurry. I have no way of knowing if this was the only copy like this or if all of the books look like this. For that reason I would give it 4 of 5 stars.

    How To Open & Operate A Financially Successful Personal and Executive Coaching Business: With Companion CD-ROM

    Authors Kristie Lorette and John Peragine have put together a very detailed and well organized book on how to open and operate a Coaching Business. I found their book to be very understanding and a must read for someone who is considering being a personal or executive coach. Two of the chapters deal with the timing of starting this type of business as well as what type of coach you would want to be. There is a great amount of energy spent in helping the reader know what type of coach they would like to become. If someone is too general in their description, then someone else who is more specific will get the job. Find out what you are good at, like to do and then go in that direction. These two issues are very important as to the success that one would have within this field. There is information on how and where to set up one's office, how to create a business plan and establish client fees. The authors also reminds the readers of the importance of getting the business legally structured correctly while discussing the various options available. When starting this type of business one must realize there is a great amount of time spent in securing the client. However, also realize there is time involved during the process of working with the client as well as after the meeting as you prepare for additional coaching sessions. There is also much needed information on how to secure new clients and maybe even as important how to keep them. So many new business owners focus on the growth then forget those who they already have on board and we are reminded to take care of those who have already joined our business and they in return will take care of us. There is also a list of coaching schools and organizations and a bibliography for additional research and reading. The extra nice part that the authors have included is a CD-ROM that contains all the forms within the book as well as a editable business plan. This book was provided by for my honest review. 5 of 5 stars

Roberts specifically lays out some of the professions that would benefit from this guide: plumbers, dentists, locksmiths, restaurants, plastic surgeons, accountants, carpet cleaners, contractors, and landscapers.

    We all operate in two fundamentally different modes: our familiar, intentional thinking mode and our elusive, unintentional automatic mode. The auto-self is the second, robot-like mode of human activities. Since our auto-self is always active, it often plays the role of enabler or saboteur of our successes after our thinking-self creates our goals, plans, and task lists. Create Star Performers: If you are a manager at any level, your success depends on making as many as possible of your team members star performers. "The Auto-Self," by author Dr. Barry Borgerson, will show readers how to align their automatic behaviors (such as failing to meet commitments or micromanaging) with the needs of the organization.

    When companies are laying off workers and the economy is going from bad to worse, no job is safe. People who want to survive need to have a Plan B. Having a small or home-based business can be an integral part of Plan B, but business owners must make sure all parts of their business are in balance. In "Plan B," longtime business coach Cesar V. Teague teaches how to take a holistic approach to business so beliefs, thoughts, and actions are all in alignment.

    Selling real estate isn’t about the agent but the customer. Old school selfish-selling styles, including chasing after strangers, spamming, and badgering friends, only give real estate agents a bad name. Ken Brand turns that situation around for agents who want to be successful, self-respecting, and deliver satisfaction to their customers in his new book "Less Blah Blah More Ah Ha." With thirty-three years of experience in the real estate business, Ken Brand has seen it all, from real estate bubbles bursting to worthy wins. He has been a top performing real estate agent, a new home salesperson, a marketing director, a brokerage company owner, a sales manager, and a writer, blogger, and speaker on real estate. Now he’s compiled his decades’ worth of wisdom and experience into a book that cuts to the chase about what real estate agents need to know in order to sell real estate successfully.
