Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed

Whether you’re just starting your own business, or you’re running a Fortune 500 company, this book is an absolute must read. Instead of spending $70k at business school, I could have spent $20 and spared two years of my life! I’m sure most of you have read Good to Great, but if you haven’t yet then you need to buy this book immediately and start reading it tonight.

I will recommend a ton of other great business books, but Good to Great is the only one that is a must read. Jim Collins does an amazing job dissecting the reasons why some companies are mediocre while others are exceptional. He uses scientific method and facts, as opposed to opinions, to illustrate the characteristics that make companies great.

Collins will tech you basic concepts like key performance indicators, the flywheel, the doom-loop and getting the right people on the bus, which are universal for any business. If you have not read Good to Great yet, I guarantee you’ll enjoy it and get a lot of value from reading it. If you’ve already read it, I would encourage you to read it again because the key learnings are timeless and invaluable!
