Entrepreneur? You need this book.
Reviewed in the United States on June 30, 2017
I heard about this new book through a Facebook group I'm in, so I grabbed it.
It's great for me today, and I'm glad I found it, but I so wish it had been available years ago. I have a very different perspective - one of a startup founder. In fact, I'm on my 5th startup, and going through all the same stress, tension and headaches that I've experienced before. The thing is, in a startup, one person (ME!) is often the CEO, COO, CFO, etc. Many hats, right? But if you spend all your time doing the CEO "stuff" and ignore the COO "stuff", you fail. I guess what I'm saying is, if you are an entrepreneur, or have a startup, or part of a startup, you need this book. Even if you are not looking to BE a COO of a big company with lots of staff - you have to have all the SKILLS of a COO.
The lessons in the book are solid. It's well thought out, obviously based on experience and sound advice. Read, or at least skim, the whole thing, and then use it as a reference each time you face a particular problem in a particular area of your business.
Do not ignore the importance of this role which, whether you like it or not, you HAVE to be on top of.
