Preface

With most business books, you open the cover and read the introduction, which says something along these lines: “I wanted to create a book to help others with …” or “I'm writing this book to show people how to …” In my case, I wrote this book because I didn't want to forget all of the valuable things I have learned through actual experience. While writing down the information I personally have found to be true and useful (and wanted to have written down so that I can manage and run my companies better), I realized that these lessons and information could be converted into a book that I could sell as well. After all, if I find this valuable, most likely others will, too. So there you have it: honesty. Refreshing, isn't it?

This book is composed of my notes on business—what works. I wrote it down so that I wouldn't forget and turned it into a book that I could carry with me. You might benefit from doing the same. This is a book about what works in business.
