For those who are wondering what this book is really about, it is geared towards small business owners who need a solid plan for taking their dream to the next level of success. Named after the infamous William Wallace (the author is of Scottish – Irish descent), the author's trademarked “BraveHeart Planning” is the real meat and potatoes of this book.
“BraveHeart Planning takes a leader who is willing to make the hard choices.” This quote is from the section titled “Everything Rises and Falls on Leadership”, and further emphasizes both the title's namesake, and the author's belief that business success or failure is largely dependent on the attitude of the people most responsible for the operation of their business – the owners. The book challenges all who are business owners, or potentials, to be ready to face adversity - and to effectively lead while doing so. The final sentence of the section reads, “You will need to be the kind of person that leads in such as way that he lives and leaves a legacy. It takes a lion. Stand up and roar!”
The next chapters take us through reviews and anecdotes of successful individuals, and the journey they took to finally reach their pinnacle. Similar to a modern day “Think and Grow Rich”, the author delves into the factors that surrounded the situations these entrepreneurs (or entrepreneurial spirits) weathered on their path to success. Whether describing the July heat of 1776 Philadelphia, the volatile Falkland Islands in 1982, Jerusalem in 848 BC or modern times, the author provides examples which provoke thought and promote learning through the experiences of others.
Chapters are punctuated with relevant quotes, and are written with an energetic and positive style which makes this book both entertaining and valuable.
Overall I think this is a great book. I purchased it for $0.99 and think at that price you would be hard pressed to find another book of this caliber. If you own a small business, or are thinking of owning one, I can highly recommend this book.
THE BRAVEHEART EXIT represents the distilled wisdom of a specialist in the area of business exit strategies, with decades of experience. Apart from the expert and conscientious treatment of the subject matter, what I particularly appreciated about the book is that it is:
* enlivened with colorful historical anecdotes
* enriched with real-life stories
* holistic in its approach
* honest, in terms of self disclosures made by the author
* modest in its tone and presentation
For any owner of a thriving business, at just 99 cents, this ebook has to be one of the best deals on the planet. It’s also an excellent example, for other authors, as to how a book on a subject that could be deadly boring can be lively and interesting—with no sacrifice to accuracy and quality.
