Wow, I am really impressed with this straight forward, easy to follow business book. It is packed with practical advice that I believe will really help me manage my startup business. Even with a business education, learning how to run my own small company seems daunting at times. This book has great, easy to understand approaches to controlling and growing a business. I can’t wait to start putting these ideas to work!

Propel Your Small Business to Success by Richard L. Weinberger is a one-stop, comprehensive and solid approach for anyone to review their business operation. One can quickly find strength in the methodology that is presented. The systems approach is a down-to-earth and sensible mechanism for any small business owner seeking to improve their bottom line.
The author gives forward looking advice when he suggests to look to the future and not to look out the “rear-view mirror” noting that only one half of new businesses will still be operating in five years. Each chapter includes a template and or a checklist that once completed can identify changes needed to be made and issues that may require additional analysis. The questions in the checklist are uncomplicated and straightforward. Also included in each chapter are “tips” which bring little known or often overlooked facts to the attention of the small business owner. The chapter on expense review for example is filled with “tips” on matters such as advertising, mileage, meal expenses and accounting fees to name a few. There is nothing not addressed and is a must read for anyone doing business or planning to start up one.

This is the best book on small business that I have read. The author does a superb job of analyzing a business from the many different perspectives. Each component of analysis such as cash flow is amplified w/ a side bar commentary ,along w/ checklists that translate into how to improve operational efficiency and profitability . Small Businesses should have this manual at their grasp and refer to it as a review on what is happening and juxtapose it to what could be happening in their business operation . If this business review were performed systematically,the results would be tantamount to profitability.

Mr. Weinberger has given us a helpful guide for achieving a successful small business. As a dental professional, I was never exposed to some of the teachings presented by Mr. Weinberger, so I am extremely thankful to have them in such a useful format at my finger tips. Great book for small business!

My wife bought this book as she was starting her business. Although I am a lawyer and have advised hundreds of start up businesses over the years on legal matters, I felt that it was important that she have a complete understanding of business operations. This book was just what she needed. I was so impressed with the content and presentation that I ordered five more books for clients. One of the clients who has started a bridal boutique just called me to tell me that she thinks Dr. Weinberger's book has been a "Godsend".

I bought this book to review the basic components of a small business and see where I needed to focus my efforts. As a sole entity with an online store and no need for employees, there was a great portion of the book that did not pertain to my situation. I would recommend this book as a great resource for a traditional store front small business.
