The Nasty Bits by Anthony Bourdain

October 18, 2009 at 2:26 pm Leave a comment

Anthony Bourdain calls himself a cook and a writer. He’s been other things, too like a drug addict and a thief. I’m not telling tales, he says it in this book.

Most importantly, right now he looks to be a person living the life he wants. He says he’s too old to head back into a kitchen full on and he loves to travel the world eating everything put in front of him. That’s what he’s doing.

He alludes to some of the conflicts he’s encountered, but this is not a book about how to do it. Instead we can read between the lines for the lessons every business owner can learn.

Lessons to learn:
Have your own voice
Work hard
Aim for where you want to get.

The Three Success Factors

I have worked closely with 100’s of business owners and I have seen too many struggle. I have seen what works and what doesn't.

It takes 3 things to succeed:
1. Hard work - and I know you do that already.
2. Knowledge - domain knowledge: you've got that and continue to learn; and business knowledge: this is where everyone focuses and it's easy to find
3. Mindset - This is the killer app. This is what makes or breaks small business owners.

We work on Mindset here at the Business Owners Success Club: how you think about yourself and your business.

When you focus on a business that gives you what you need to live a Good Life and gives others what they need to solve a problem, everything else falls into place and you have a successful business.

Using that as a framework we work on one aspect of business every month. February is "Your Place in Your Community" month.

In March we will open the doors to our online community. Stay Tuned.
