Larry Brummond about this book: As a life-long entrepreneur, I've been a sole proprietor and ventured down the partnership road (family and non-family). All businesses have to deal with capital requirements, cash flow, marketing, sales, and operational processes. I refer to those basics as the "numbers." Often overlooked are the intangibles of entrepreneurship. Those things that are akin to desire, effort, and teamwork in sports. In business, I've identified 5 areas that are just as important as the basics or numbers of starting and running a business. This book is about the intangibles. It's my story, my experiences, some tools, and lots of ideas any entrepreneur can use to boost the chances of having a successful business and life. One of my editors said "the book contains some great advice, not just for entrepreneurs, but for anyone grappling with life in general." In this book, you'll get tools to assess whether you'd be a good partner (and how to find a compatible partner). You'll have simple goal-setting tools, and understand the level of responsibility you'll be dealing with as an entrepreneur. You'll also be tested on what you believe and how you define what your business stands for. You'll be reminded how important attitude is to your business and how to build and maintain a positive culture. In other words, this is both a business and self-help book. You'll love it.
