Description

Want more success? Then Keep Learning!!!

Studies have repeatedly shown that the most successful business owners are those who are constantly learning new ideas. The good news is there are lots of great business books out there - the challenge for most of us is finding the time to actually read them.

That's where Aspire's Business Book Reviews come in. This is going to be a regular event where you will be able to pick up the key ideas and themes from a great business book...and get some ideas on how to start applying those to your business right away.

And the best part? You don't even need to read the book! We'll cover the key points, have a great group discussion and get you on your way. You'll walk out with a several page summary, some new knowledge and introductions to like minded business owners and professionals who also want to learn and be successful!

It's kind of early - but we'll have coffee and breakfast for you and you'll be on your way, smarter, happier and better looking than you were before (well at least smarter and happier). We guarantee it!


This Month's Book - Traction

Winning at business is a lot like climbing a mountain. The business owners who really succeed in the long run...those who make it to the top of the mountain figure out what it takes to create the organization, the processes, the fundamental details that you must have if you're going to get to the top.

Traction is a detailed how-to for creating that operating system.

Get a Grip on Your Business

Do you know of any business owners who struggle with the following?

  • Lack of control - more time fighting fires than driving the business
  • Frustration with people - employees not on the same page, not understanding where you're going or helping you get there
  • Profit...not enough of it
  • Feeling stuck - you feeling like you've hit the ceiling and nothing you do is really moving you forward anymore.

Author Gino Wickman has successfully built and sold his own businesses and has worked with hundreds of other businesses over the year to help them reach great success. In Traction, Wickman lays out a clear path for all of the elements needed to transform a business into one that's not only built for growth, but also purposely created to free the business owner from day to day struggles. He describes his overall approach as an Entrepreneurial Operating System and it really is a powerful road map that works (we've used much of it with our clients).

This is a fantastic book and well worth your time to read and it's even better to discuss it with other business owners...and that's what Business Book Reviews are all about!

Here are a few comments from previous Business Book Reviews:

"If you haven't attended a book review by the Aspire folks then you're missing out. Want inspiration? Attend. Want new connections to excellent people? Attend. Want new thoughts or new ways of thinking? Attend."

"I thought this was extremely valuable. It was very inspirational and my head is already spinning with ideas and things I want to implement."

"This really added a dynamic to the way I would have been able to think about and comprehend the material on my own."

Traction is a vertiable textbook on the right way to build a business and will challenge you on how you look at business. There are a lot of ideas here and I guarantee you will learn some great stuff! You should read Traction...but you'll get even more out of it by joining this the Business Book Review discussion (and YOU DON"T NEED TO READ THE BOOK to get a lot out of the discussion).


Who Should Attend?

Business leaders and professionals who have a need to keep learning, but don't have the time nor the inclination to read...or just realize they will get even more out of the discussion of the material than just reading it (i.e. a lot of smart people we know)!


How does it work?

We'll keep it simple - come in at 8:00, Aspire will provide breakfast (something tasty - bagel, pastry, kolache...) and some coffee and we'll get rolling. You'll have a few minutes to meet the other attendees and then we'll dive into the review and discussion of the book. About 1/2 the time will be spent covering the key ideas and the other 1/2 will be more of a group discussion.

We're limiting the group size to 30, small enough so everyone can participate, but large enough to have a lively exchange with lots of different viewpoints and ideas.

We'll close on time and get you on with your day, secure in the knowledge that you know now more...and will be more successful.


Complete Guarantee

If for any reason you don't feel like you learned at least a couple of useful new ideas, then you will get a complete and cheerful refund...and get to keep your summary!
