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.

My husband is a lawyer who has helped organize dozens and dozens of small businesses so when I decided to start my business, I relied on him to help me choose the type of organization that was appropriate. Likewise, my CPA advised me on how to set up my accounting and payroll systems. But I quickly discovered that I needed help with other business functions such as planning, budgeting and finance, management issues, marketing, etc. The bookshelves at Barnes and Noble are full of self-help books aimed at small business owners, but some seemed overly complicated and others were really simplistic in their approach. That's why I went to the internet and found Dr. Weinberger's book "Propel Your Small Business to Success." The book covers all areas of business in a straight forward, comprehensive manner. I especially appreciate how the book is organized with detailed checklists and "tips" that you can really use in the operation of the business.

My husband has also read through the book and tells me that he plans to give one to many of his current small business clients and every new client who intends to start a new business as a partnership, limited liability company or corporation.

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.

Richard L. Weinberger’s state-of-the-art new book, Propel Your Small Business To Success/Accelerated Actions to Maximize Profit, came along right when I needed it. As a recent corporate executive employee, I have ventured into the world of heading up a small but thriving start-up. Now, the decisions, planning, management, analysis, and marketing are there to be determined by my team and myself. All new game.

Mr. Weinberger makes his expertise in these areas and more both readable and comprehensible through an authoritative text filled with organized detail. He has obviously been in this business for a while.

He punctuates his wisdom with appendixes, summaries, and tips that are easy to note, and he includes points and charts that render the reader even more accessibility. From discourse on the small business of today to finance, his publication includes every component a small business owner/manager needs to succeed, right down to technology and customer relationships. He covers strategy, marketing, and risk assessment, to name a few. His is an invaluable piece of work that should be on the shelves of every small business owner and key executives. Make no mistake, this book is designed to insure the small business owner a profit.

I am in every way pleased I found this Mr. Weinberger’s book, and I enthusiastically recommend it to others.

This book is an excellent resource for anyone considering starting a business as well as those who need some guidance on how to improve specific areas or overall performance of their existing business. It is an easy to follow guide that is written for all audiences. The checklists and chapter summaries are a great tool to identify the key points being made so that the reader can refer back easily as they work through the processes and apply them in their business. As an employee working in small to medium businesses, I find that this will be a “go to” book for me to help me improve processes in my own department as well as gain a better understanding of the overall operations of the company.
