5.0 out of 5 stars I received an early copy, and now I have an early advantage, October 2, 2012

This review is from: It's Your Business: 183 Essential Tips that Will Transform Your Small Business (Hardcover)
Let me start off with this... I have a major bias toward books that are a compilation of actionable tips. They become reference guides for me, and JJ Ramberg's book is no different.

My favorite chapter (and the one I recommend most) is Chapter 8 "Getting Your Message Out There." It has a collection of 17 tips that get my mind stimulated to push the limit on my own current marketing. I have already taken ideas from here. Not directly, but used the book to spawn my "final marketing product."

I have this puppy in arms reach and think you will too.

PRO's:
1. Doable, "how to" actions... not just ideas and platitudes.
2. Covers all facets of business, from recruiting employees to sales to controlling costs and running the office.
3. Tons of angles. I like that each idea is from a different entrepreneur or expert. Each approach has a unique feel.

CON's:
1. JJ has grown a wildly successful business (goodSearch.com) of her own. I really want to hear her story and the step by step on how she did it. It's not included in the book, I and I think it should have been.

Well, since this is coming from YOU Mike, looks like this is another "must have!" Will pre-order for Kindle and most likely end up getting a hard copy too since I've been enjoying JJ's "Your Business" on MSNBC for so long. Like you stated, I also appreciate actionable tips!

LOL! Well... I do have a tip in there! I actually have it in my hands now and am reading tip #48. I have to do a performance review for a contractor I have, and planned to do a pay raise. But now the tip has me thinking totally differently. It is a handy dandy book!
