From the Inside Flap

Michael Port's Book Yourself Solid was a huge hit among professional service providers and small business owners. With that book, thousands mastered the art of attracting tons of new clients and keeping them happy. But the tactics and strategies Port introduced in Book Yourself Solid worked too well! Today, many readers simply have more clients than they can handle.

But, with every new success comes a new challenge. Port solves this problem with a revolutionary plan for gracefully upping your business to the next stage of success—Beyond Booked Solid. That means growing and expanding your business from a small operation that takes all your time and energy just to stay afloat to a bigger, better business that pays you more while you work less.

You've worked so hard to build your business and earn the trust of your clients that you probably can't imagine letting go. But you can't truly grow your business if you're doing all the work yourself. How do you do it? Here you'll find innovative strategies for tweaking, designing, and arranging your business in ways that allow you to relax and work less while the business grows reliably and automatically.

If you're booked solid now, or on your way, here's how you can enter a new realm of consistent, predictable growth and profit.

I highly recommend it for those who want to understand how to go from doing it all themselves to running a highly successful enterprise with no limit on what is possible."
—Dr. Tony Alessandra, coauthor of The Platinum Rule

Buy this book if you want to leave a financial and a personal legacy."

Format: Hardcover
Beyond Booked Solid is the next step in the journey for entrepreneurs. This isn't your ordinary business book. In fact, it's much more. This work is about getting you to take a step back and really look at what's going on inside of you. It provides you with ideas and concepts that will help you to adopt the mindset you need to create a business that fits with your highest vision, your heart's dream, and your mission in life. Port presents many valuable principles that are necessary to embrace in order to take your business to the next level -- one that's integrated with your values and aspirations and scaled to whatever level you desire.

Michael writes, "What's it all for, all this right attitude, business architecture, and systems? What is your destiny, inside and outside your business? If you serve others, but don't serve your own destiny, things are going to fall apart." No truer words have ever been written. This book will help you to start thinking differently -- in a new direction. He'll present you with business growth models that are going to save you time, money, and energy, and most importantly, allow you to find your freedom while living your bliss. It's more about integration - of your higher self with your business -- your business being the delivery vehicle for fully expressing the former.

Beyond Book Solid will require more than one read. The concepts he presents are many, the ideas are big, and you'll need the time to allow them to sink in and take on a meaning that fits with who you are and what you want to accomplish in the world.

As I turned the last page of the book, I did feel changed. In fact, I sat down and outlined some plans to move my own business in a new, bigger, and bolder direction. This book will get you thinking.

I'm a Michael Port fan. Loved Book Yourself Solid, however this book did little to expand on the concept.

To summarize this book,
~Think positive
~Set goals
~Do what it takes to reach them
~Franchise yourself

I kept his first book, this book I'm selling after reading it.

I loved Book Yourself Solid and liked how practical it was. This book was still a very valuable read, but some of his terminology could have been used more clearly, and I wish that he's provided better take-aways as to specific actions readers can take right now after reading this book.

I'd recommend this book if you want to think about yourself and your business differently, but if you are in the mood to actually take some step by step actions right now, save this book for when you are in a contemplative or planning phase of your business.

Format: Hardcover
First, let me just say that I've implemented the information in Book Yourself Solid - Michael's first book - into my business over the past six months, and I'm still doing so everyday. The results have been phenomenal. So much so, that we're now much more selective with the types of clients we're working with and the type of work we're doing. That sort of focus and deliberateness just wasn't present in our business before discovering Michael's book and his coaching sessions.

Of course, I was wondering what to do as I started to get more work than I could handle. "Beyond Booked Solid" provides the answers. Continuing with the lessons from his first book, Michael teaches you in a well-written and easily accessible way how to build an architecture for your business and implement systems that truly do free you to think much bigger about your business. I can actually see - based on the work I'm doing from the exercises in the book - that it's OK to take me out of the equation of the day-to-day operations so that I can focus on the other aspects of my life that are important to me - most notably spending time with my wife and kids and doing the sort of things I love to do. In this day and age, there really is no excuse for an entrepreneur to spend 12 hours a day slaving away on jobs that others can do better and more efficiently. Michael teaches you to identify those areas, develop systems to handle those and encourages you to get a life.

In fact, I'm finding that while Booked Yourself Solid was sort of a nuts and bolts to marketing and growing your business in your own unique way, Beyond Booked Solid presents a more holistic approach to business as it relates to your life and quality of living.

Even though I don't have a copy of "Book Yourself Solid" I followed my intuition and decided to purchase "Beyond Booked Solid" about 10 days ago and so glad I did. One reason for my thinking was if I found some of your suggestions helpful in "Beyond Booked Solid," it would probably free me more to become booked solid.

What I want to pass on is:
1. I did buy your book and it's loaded with great suggestions and questions to help me (and other readers) take the actions I need to achieve better results and think bigger, without a doubt. I'm really enjoying and finding value from your content.
2. I love the workbook. It's very useful and a way to help me and other readers implement the ideas you present in a useful, reader-friendly format.
3. Here's the kicker Michael that you made this user-friendly workbook available to the reader for free and as an instant download. Michael this free workbook is truly a gift and tremendous added value to those who purchase your book. Thank you! It was such a pleasant surprise and I'm getting so much more from your book as a result of this workbook. This really was an unexpected gift, I had no idea about it when I purchased your book, only as I started to read through it.

Thanks for a great book.
