Friday Morning Business Guru—August 21 2009
I'm not a big time business genius, but wanted to share a couple of thoughts:
If you run a small business or have thoughts of running a small business, buy and read Scott McKain's Collapse of Distinction. Really. It's not a comprehensive evaluation of why every business rises or falls, but it's a good start. What makes you stand out as a business? Do you do something that memorable? Seek out your niche and stay with it.
Another good read is Thomas Nelson's CEO Michael Hyatt. His blog carries his opinions about doing business and involving technology and people in the process.
Beyond that, what would you want to see in an occasional business comment around here? Anything? I'll probably relate stories of good and bad service and observed business practices. I'll dig back into my time in restaurant and logistics to offer my opinions, and how they might relate. But this will probably be the least frequent segment of my blog, because I'm not the world's greatest business man.
