I had a chance to check out Michael Port’s upcoming book on the flight to Chicago. Beyond Booked Solid: Your Business, Your Life, Your Way is going to be very helpful in taking some next steps in my consulting practice. Very helpful. Wider margins in the advance copy meant more room to jot down ideas…and it’s pretty marked up after the first pass.
This is the kind of book that you need to read through once to get a feel for the whole concept and then again, slowly, to implement the ideas. And it is packed with ideas and insights into how to work "on" your business. If you’re familiar with the difference between working "in" and working "on" your business (Michael Gerber’s The E Myth) you’ll start writing in the margins right away. This is all about building a sustainable, scalable business.
I know I’ll be writing more about it as I work my way back through. For now, lets just say if you’re interested in building a service business you’re going to want to pick up a copy. In addition, I can also say that all of us who are working "on" the systems of organizations…this book has great application. You can pre-order your copy Right Here.
