15 Ways to Grow Your Business in Every Economy Reviews
This is a clear, simple and honest book about how to grow your business. It does what it says it will do – shows business and particularly small businesses, how to be more productive and profitable.The chapters are short, mostly two to three pages, with exercises and action steps that are immediately applicable for improving the business.I particularly liked the section on developing your Business Plan or “dusting off your old one”. Often this strategy is a weak point for many businesses, whereas the simplicity of this section would make it hard for any business owner or manager to have an excuse for not developing a sound business plan. As author Mary C. Kelly points out “To be successful and sustainable, a company needs a plan”.There are plenty of good marketing tips throughout the book, including two that I liked on “How to get the best out of complaints” and “Managing the social media”.In terms of the books layout, it’s well written and easy to follow. I would have liked to have seen an overview of the “15 Steps” mentioned in the introduction, but not listed as such. A visual road map at the start of these steps and a solid summary at the end of the book would have greatly helped me remember the 15 Steps (this would probably also be useful for readers who may be new to some of these steps).I would have also liked to have seen more information and explanation (particularly “How to”) on “Communicate with your clients – Past, Present and Future”. Many of the less successful businesses I have seen would benefit from an expanded section on this topic.I believe “15 Ways to Grow Your Business in Every Economy” will serve as an excellent planning tool and guide, particularly for those businesses that are short on a structured approach to planning and managing their growth.
As I first looked at the book I thought it would be much like the others. They would tell me something and then move on. But it isn't like that. You get a chapter about a topic and then you are given workbook type questions with blanks to write your answers directly in the pages. The language used is very basic and easy to understand. This truly is a beginners guide without making the beginner feel dumb. As you progress through the steps you learn more and more in a special order on how to do things. This book cuts out your path for you. You are lead down and explained to at each step where you are going and why and more. If you are going to start a business or even if you own a business now I suggest you get this book. You'll be amazed at what simple things you've over looked or forgotten.
This book is a great resource for starting or reinventing your business. Dr. Kelly takes her suggestions to the next level by providing samples, brainstorming exercises and step-by-step instructions. While the text encouraged me to make a change today, the questions and checklists helped me take the first step.
Very insightful read. I would recommend to anyone who is really interested in taking their business to the next level.
