The 51 Fatal Business Errors is a power-packed and most useful tool. Different that many business books that try to draw the reader in with stories and case studies, this one simply hits fifty-one crucial areas that small business leaders need to be excellent in, shows the common error(s) that many CEOs make, and offers a solution for every one. Every business owner will find at least one idea in this volume that could make or save them thousands of dollars. --Dan Devling, President, Midland Radio Corporation
About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Jim Muehlausen provides a book for small businessmen (and women), especially entrepreneurs, full of common mistakes that can prevent your success and actually lead to business failure. This book has 51 common business mistakes and most of us who have worked in business have seen most of them made at one time or another. Maybe we have made a few of them ourselves.
Each mistake is explained in a paragraph or two, a brief real life example is given, and a solution for the problem is offered. About half of the problems also have boldface paragraphs where the author really gets in your face about this problem. A few of these problems contain a bonus that you can view on the web.
The author offers a subscription web service to help you improve you business that is based on this book. You don't need to subscribe to benefit from this book, but I thought you should know that the author will try to sell you that service as your read this book.
The book deals with errors that have to do with hiring, organization, selling & marketing, how you lead, common worst practices, and the errors that flow from trying to be the only one in your company who can actually do anything and then blaming everyone else when things go wrong.
I like this book and you might benefit from it, too.
No, I did not subscribe to the service.

I once had a person tell me there are no new management ideas, only new people using them. This may be true. "The 51 Fatal Business Errors" is very helpful in presenting observations that are worth considering adding to your management "tool kit".
The book is well worth the price.
I have really been getting a lot out of the 51 errors.
This book was given to me by one of my EO Forum members and I read it from cover to cover that evening. I have since purchased copies for my friends and customers because the knowledge contained in this book is gold.
My assistant entered one error on my schedule every Monday for a year and I pull the book out and go over an error every week. It's really helped me to internalize the information and it helps me focus for the week...
I understand Muehlhausen uses this book as the basis for speeches he gives around the country. I'm looking forward to catching him when he comes to Atlanta.
