Built to Sell

Author: John Warrillow | Versions: Paperback, Hardcover, eBook, Audio | Category: Business | Languages: English

Most business owners started their company because they wanted more freedom—to work on their own schedules, make the kind of money they deserve, and eventually retire on the fruits of their labor.

Unfortunately, according to John Warrillow, most owners find that stepping out of the picture is extremely difficult because their business relies too heavily on their personal involvement. Without them, their company—no matter how big or profitable—is essentially worthless.

But the good news is that entrepreneurs can take specific steps—no matter what stage a business is in—to create a valuable, sellable company. Warrillow shows exactly what it takes to create a solid business that can thrive long into the future.

Giving It All Away... And Getting It All Back Again by David Green
Giving It All Away…and Getting It All Back Again

Author: David Green with Bill High | Versions: Hardcover, Paperback, eBook, Audio  | Category: Success | Languages: English

Self-made billionaire David Green, founder of America’s craft store giant Hobby Lobby, tells shares the secrets he’s learned to building a powerful legacy.

Generosity. It’s the foundation for building a lasting legacy not just of money but also of the enduring values of faith, family, and openhanded living. In this book–part memoir, part personal manifesto–David Green shares lessons that can help you reap benefits for multiple generations.

In 1970, Green began making picture frames in his garage. With hard work, he and his wife, Barbara, turned that grassroots beginning into the world’s largest privately-owned arts-and-crafts retailer, employing thirty-two thousand people in more than seven hundred stores across forty-seven states.

Green’s story includes inside details of the 2014 Supreme Court case over Hobby Lobby’s right-to-life stance. But it’s not all about business. Giving It All Away . . . and Getting It All Back Again changes the paradigm by emphasizing that true wealth is more than money–it’s about faith, family, intellectual capital, and spiritual capital.

The 80/20 Principle by Richard Koch

The 80/20 Principle

Author: Richard Kock | Versions: Paperback, eBook, Audio | Category: Business | Languages: English

The 80/20 principle is one of the great secrets of highly effective people and organizations.

Did you know, for example, that 20 percent of customers account for 80 percent of revenues? That 20 percent of our time accounts for 80 percent of the work we accomplish? The 80/20 Principle shows how we can achieve much more with much less effort, time, and resources, simply by identifying and focusing our efforts on the 20 percent that really counts. Although the 80/20 principle has long influenced today’s business world, author Richard Koch reveals how the principle works and shows how we can use it in a systematic and practical way to vastly increase our effectiveness, and improve our careers and our companies.

The unspoken corollary to the 80/20 principle is that little of what we spend our time on actually counts. But by concentrating on those things that do, we can unlock the enormous potential of the magic 20 percent, and transform our effectiveness in our jobs, our careers, our businesses, and our lives.
