RAPID, HEALTHY, ORGANIC BUSINESS GROWTH

Who knew that the secret to rapid, healthy, organic business growth was held by pumpkin farmers? Not just ordinary pumpkin farmers, but those geek farmers, who grow colossal pumpkins as big as your car.

Told only as acclaimed author, Mike Michalowicz, can, The Pumpkin Plan reveals the simple, yet highly effective, method to grow the business of your dreams. There is a reason The Pumpkin Plan has been a perennial bestseller for nearly a decade: It cuts through the confusion of entrepreneurship and reveals the simple strategy to trigger extraordinary growth. Always.

Editorial Reviews

Review

“Every page, every chapter, as I read this book, I asked myself, ‘Michael E. Gerber, how come YOU didn’t think of that?’ Just remarkable! Just absolutely a remarkable book. A pumpkin! Who would have thought? Every one of you—entrepreneurs, business owners—read it! Do it now!”
—MICHAEL GERBER, author of
The E-Myth and creator of The E-Myth Evolution™

“Another great read from Mike Michalowicz! Mike’s off-the-cuff sense of humor and business savvy ensure that The Pumpkin Plan is a book that entrepreneurs should read for years to come.”

—GUY KAWASAKI, author of Enchantment and The Art of the Start

“Hard-hitting advice aimed directly at the entrepreneur who is stuck being a wandering generality instead of a meaningful specific. Plenty of seeds worth planting.”

—SETH GODIN, author of We Are All Weird

“Michalowicz hits it out of the park, yet again. The Pumpkin Plan is chock-full of Mike’s wonderful humor and is an extraordinary step-by-step guide for entrepreneurs whose business growth has plateaued.”

—J. J. RAMBERG, host of MSNBC’s Your Business

“In his crazy-like-a-fox style, Mike Michalowicz reveals why channeling a pumpkin farmer brings you unparalleled success. Michalowicz is rapidly becoming one of the most innovative business authors of our time. The proof is in the pudding (or pumpkin, as it were).”

—RIEVA LESONSKY, CEO of GrowBiz Media, former editorial director of Entrepreneur magazine

“Mike makes turning your business from ordinary to extraordinary as easy as following a simple step-by-step recipe. This book reveals degrees of knowledge and wisdom I have rarely seen in writing before. If you read only one book this year, let it be The Pumpkin Plan.”

—BOB BURG, co-author of The Go-Giver and author of Endless Referrals

“He’s a very handsome young man.”

 —URSULA MICHALOWICZ, Mike’s mom

By his 35th birthday MIKE MICHALOWICZ (pronounced mi-‘kal-o-wits) had founded and sold two multi-million dollar companies.

Confident that he had the formula to success, he became a small business angel investor… and proceeded to lose his entire fortune.

Mike has devoted his life to the research and delivery of innovative, impactful entrepreneurial strategies to you.

Mike is the creator of Profit First, which is used by hundreds of thousands of companies across the globe to drive profit. He is the creator of Clockwork, a powerful method to make any business run on automatic. He is the author of Fix This Next, an instant Wall Street Journal Bestseller, The Pumpkin Plan, Surge and The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur. His newest book, Get Different, teaches entrepreneurs how to creating marketing that can't be ignored.

Today, Mike leads two new multi-million-dollar ventures, as he tests his latest business research for his books. He is a former small business columnist for The Wall Street Journal and business makeover specialist on MSNBC. Mike is a popular main stage keynote speaker on innovative entrepreneurial topics; and is the author of Get Different, Fix This Next, Clockwork, Profit First, Surge, The Pumpkin Plan and The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur.

Fabled author, Simon Sinek deemed Mike Michalowicz “…the top contender for the patron saint of entrepreneurs.”

His books are in the core curriculum for entrepreneur students at Pepperdine, Carnegie Mellon, Stanford University, and universities across the country.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Pumpkin Plan is a must read
By MARSHAUN OLANIYAN on May 14, 2022
I love how the Pumpkin Plan is broken down and the concepts within the book. Currently working on several areas anime discusses in this book in order for me to grow my own Giant Pumpkin and eliminate the curve.

I was already on the right track to standing out from any competition and this book is helping me to be even better. I’m finding ways to add my own “est” to my coaching industry.

Thanks again Mike for this and several other of your books to help me create and build a well rounded business I can either sell or hold onto. ☺️
