February Reading

March 7, 2012 at 9:24 am Leave a comment

The Great Railway Bazaar: by train through Asia by Paul Theroux. I’ve already read his later one where he made the trip 30 years later. Our online book club wanted to try something different than the usual business books we read so we decided to try travel books. While searching for options I came across this one. Once again, he makes the idea of extended travel by train sound like fun.

 

A Homemade Life: stories and recipes from my kitchen table by Molly Wizenberg. Short chapters about her life, each involving and ending with a recipe.

 

Bioshelter Market Garden: a permaculture farm by Darrell Frey. Okay, I didn’t read every word – I have no intention of starting a market garden, but I did read all the chapters pertaining to permaculture and bioshelter design and management. This is about living the good life.

 

Dead Cold: a Novel by Louise Penny. A murder mystery set in Quebec. I enjoyed reading this, but I must admit I forgot it right away. I will read more by her.

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.
