August Reading

September 4, 2011 at 10:08 am Leave a comment

Gift From the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh.  She tells of the transitions in her life – life was just beginning to be harried (only in North America), the start of Women’s Liberation and she sees her generation as the first to experience knowing more people than one can care for.

My Reading Life by Pat Conroy.  I hadn’t intended to read this whole book.  I didn’t think I would care about someone’s reading list, but he made the story very interesting and it is quite well written.

What’s Mine is Yours: the rise of collaborative consumption by Rachel Botsman and Roo Rogers.  This book had more sticky notes stuck to it when I was done than any other I have read.  Collaborative Consumption is a growing trend that tells me Repair-Share is right on target.

Cabin Fever: a suburban Father’s search for the wild by Tom Montgomery Fate.  An exploration through the seasons about life and wildlife.  He has the luxury of a writing cabin.  Sounds like a great idea to me right about now.

Financial Recovery: developing a healthy relationship with money by Karen McCall.  A practical and real plan for financial recovery taking self-employment into consideration.

 Fish: a remarkable way to boost morale and improve results by Stepen C. Lundin, Harry Paul and John Christensen.  A short fable around the famed Pike Place Fish Market telling about how to engage and motivate employees.

Bliss, Remembered: a novel by Frank Deford.  I really enjoyed this book.

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.
