A friend, Craig Wasilchak with Crushing B2B, gave me a copy of “Scaling Up: How a Few Companies Make It…and Why the Rest Don’t” to read as I work on my business. It was a great gift and a fantastic book!
There is a ton of information in the book that will help any business owner looking to continue their growth. That is kind of an understatement because this book in one that I wish I had read much sooner. It’s also going to be there as a quick reference guide on my desk for many years to come.
The thing that I like most about this book is there is instant value for any business owner on any level that wants to learn something. Any entrepreneur can learn a few things from this book that they could immediately implement into their business.
